WHITE PLAINS – County Executive Robert P. Astorino announced three key appointments to his administration:

Kopicki is a lifelong Westchester resident and graduate of Manhattan College. He comes to county government from the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, where he was a senior manager.

He also has a decade of experience managing facility and transportation operations from when he served as director of engineering and capital projects for the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp.

“It’s an honor to serve the community where I grew up and where my wife and I raised our three sons,” Kopicki said. “Having built my reputation on delivering capital projects on time and on budget, I look forward to working with County Executive Astorino, managing a 5-year capital plan that invests $1 billion into our infrastructure and creates nearly 11,000 construction jobs.”
