YONKERS - At today's Westchester Democratic Committee breakfast, the mood was dampened by the current federal corruption trial of former Yonkers Councilwoman Sandy Annabi.

Annabi is on trial for allegedly taking bribes for changing her vote for the controversial Ridge Hill development project.

At the breakfast, Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano, who testified this week in the trial, spoke about his time on the stand.

"It's always unnerving for anyone to testify in federal court, it's not the easiest thing in the world," says Spano.

Fellow Democrats at the event say they don't feel the events in Yonkers will negatively affect the image of the party.
