HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON - Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. was honored on Saturday night by the Mediterranean Political Action Committe.

The MPAC aims to give Arab-Americans in the Hudson Valley a voice in politics and in their communities.

Scarpino was recognized for demonstrating good faith by hiring a key member of the Arab community.

"Just recently, about a year ago,he's hired an Arab-American in his organization. I think in his investigations division, which I think is something we need, because we have a lot of Arab lawyers, but we would liek to have someone that works in the DA's office," said John Khader, President of MPAC.

Scarpino said it was a pleasure to be honored by MPAC.

"Having people from this community, the Mediterranean community, has been one of the important issues of my office to try to diversify hte offices," Scarpino said.
