Ernest D. Davis – Life After Politics

Former MV Mayor Ernest Davis sits down for a one on one with the Yonkers Voice

You can not talk about the City of Mount Vernon without mentioning the name Ernie Davis. The former Mayor held a long background in politics stemming back to the 1970’s. First Black Building Commissioner in the 70’s, first Black County Legislator and second African-American Mayor of the City of Mount Vernon for 16 years over a 20 year period. Even after a lost to first time City Councilman Richard W. Thomas, Davis is still considered the People’s Mayor to many Mount Vernonites.


You can still hear Ernie Davis on WVOX every Thursday morning on his very own radio show Conversations With Ernie Davis at 9-10AM. So what has Davis been up to since January 2016 when Thomas was sworn in. The former mayor sat down with Yonkers Voice’s Robbie Mann to talk about Life After Politics, the current administration, and his thoughts on residency requirement, Memorial Field, DPW, and “honorary” deputy police commissioner Joseph Spiezio.

BOYCOTT FOR BLACK LIVES T-SHIRT  BUY HERE

Colin Kaepernick has committed no crime other than spoke truth to power about the injustices to black people in the United States. For this, he should not be punished by blackballing him from the game of football. If people want change, we must Boycott! It’s up to us to protest but not just physically; with our money. If black lives don't matter to them, then our black dollars shouldn't either.
