WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. --  Chris Burdick, supervisor of the Town of Bedford, and Mike Gordon of South Salem, CEO and co-founder of Joule Assets Inc., have been elected co-chairs of the Board of Directors of Sustainable Westchester Inc., the recently formed consortium of municipalities organized to work together toward a more sustainable future for Westchester County.

The election was at a meeting of the board Tuesday, March 31, at the White Plains Library.

Before becoming supervisor in 2014, Burdick served six years on Bedford’s Town Board after nine years as a Commissioner of Bedford’s Wetlands Control Commission, eight of which were as chairman.

In his role with Sustainable Westchester, Gordon has been instrumental in fostering progressive opportunities for municipalities, such as the recently approved Community Choice Aggregation program and an emerging “resilience through micro-grids” program. He pioneered the Collective Buying market, setting up the nation’s first heating oil and prescription drug buying groups, and the demand response market, paying consumers scores of millions of dollars annually for their energy efficiency, through ConsumerPowerline (later CPower, the nation’s first service company in the industry).

“We have an amazing board that is working beautifully together,” Burdick said. “Our charge is to provide value to county municipalities by creating savings for members and members’ taxpayers through shared services, by growing the region’s green economy, and by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We have hit the ground running.”
