NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- New Rochelle Noam Bramson is backing Chappaqua’s Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid, according to his latest blogpost.

Bramson, citing the former secretary of state's experience, work ethic, “wide-ranging knowledge” and “steely resilience,” said Clinton is the most qualified candidate for the position of head of state.

On a personal level, Bramson said he found Clinton, a former U.S. senator from New York, to be “warm, engaging, responsive, and sincerely committed to public service.”

The nation also has a chance to honor its ideals by electing a woman as president, Bramson also said in his post on

Bramson wrote, however, that Clinton’s chief rival, U.S, Sen. Bernie Sanders from Vermont, has many good points.

Among them, the Democratic mayor wrote, are the way Sanders has raised the “profile of vitally important issues,” such as the “dreadful and debilitating campaign finance system” and “the pernicious effects of inequality.”

Sanders’ “rumpled anti-style” is appealing, Bramson wrote.

If Sanders was a doctor, Bramson said he would give him high marks for his “diagnostic skills and bedside manner.”

But, for “prescription and treatment,” not so much, the mayor wrote.

Sanders’ “revolutionary rhetoric” may thrill some folks, but Clinton’s “thoughtful, more fully-considered strategy” will help change lives, Bramson wrote.

Despite supporting Clinton, Bramson also urged voters to vote for Jared Rice, a city councilman who will be on the ballot as a Sanders’ delegate.
