According to the Westchestergov.com press release on December 30, 2010,
"County Executive Robert P. Astorino today named a new commissioner of Social Services, selecting a person with almost three decades of bottom-to-top professional experience in health and human services to oversee the county's largest department...Kevin M. McGuire, a one-time New York City social services caseworker who up until this week was executive director of the Maryland Department of Human Resources Family Investment Administration, was selected following a nationwide search. He will begin his new job next week."
"McGuire began his career in the human services field in 1981 as a caseworker in the South Bronx for the new York City Human Resources Administration. He stayed with the department until 2003 in a variety of positions that focused on programs as well as date processing and technology. Form 1998-2003 he served as the Bronx deputy regional manager, where he was part of the team that planned and implemented New York City's successful welfare reform efforts."
Read more about him at the County website at www3.westchestergov.com. We are hopeful that he, like Rob Astorino and others, will bring conservative and life affirming sensibilities to his new position in service to all the people of our County.
Welcome, Commissioner McGuire!
