Yonkers Daily Voice serves Yonkers, NY

Westchester resident and 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attracted a record crowd at The Business Council of Westchester’s  (BCW) Annual Fall Dinner held Monday, Nov. 20 at The Hilton Westchester with overflow tables that spilled out into the hallway.

The former first lady, secretary of state and U.S. senator from New York was at the Rye Brook hotel to receive the Westchester Global Leadership Laureate Award.

She was greeted — after a speech by BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon — with a standing ovation, rousing applause, and even a “We love you Hillary” shouted from a group in the back of the room.

After a brief mention about how crazy the electon was — she drew laughter from the audience when she referenced the recent Westchester county executive race between Democrat George Latimer and two-term Repulican Rob Astorino (as opposed to her own) — she spoke about lessons learned from the 2016 Presidential campaign.

“People often ask me, since the election, how I am,” said Clinton. “And I say, as a person, I’m good. But as an American, I’m concerned.”

When asked what they would tell Trump if he were seated next to them, Bill Clinton said Trump should, “stop seeking enemies and look for people to work with”

Former president Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appeared together onstage Friday for the first time since the 2016 presidential election to answer a host of political and personal questions.

The former First Couple was very casual during the hourlong discussion at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving.

They cracked a few jokes and were very candid on a number of topics — chief among them President Donald Trump, the 2016 election and the way forward for the Democratic Party.

When asked what they would tell Trump if he were seated next to them, Bill Clinton said Trump should, “stop seeking enemies and look for people to work with.”

“We’re the same age,” he added. “What do you want your legacy to be?”

Hillary Clinton said Trump, as president, should do more to unite the country. She also discussed some of her own missteps during the campaign.

“It was the first reality TV campaign. He was the first reality TV candidate and I was the candidate of reality. I was not as entertaining and I admit that,” she said.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton said her party’s huge wins in Virginia’s Nov. 7 elections were “about as close to a silver lining as you can get” to her defeat in the 2016 presidential election.

Speaking Tuesday afternoon to an enthusiastic audience at the University of Virginia, Clinton said it was thrilling to know that her loss to Republican Donald Trump had inspired women to step out of their comfort zones and run for office. In Virginia, that resulted in a 67 percent increase in the number of women in the state legislature after this month’s elections. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam also defeated his Republican opponent, Ed Gillespie.

“I think that the contrast between the inauguration and then the next day – the [women’s] march was something that I think began a movement that so many people, in particular women, want to be part of,” she said.

Clinton was speaking with Virginia first lady Dorothy McAuliffe during a question-and-answer session that closed UVA’s two-day Women’s Global Leadership Forum, part of the University’s bicentennial celebration.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was warmly welcomed to Grounds Tuesday afternoon with a standing ovation to deliver the closing remarks for the Women’s Global Leadership Forum, hosted by the University’s Morven Programs. Her speech was titled, “Women and 21st Century Democracy: The Path Forward.”

The auditorium of Old Cabell Hall, which seats about 850 people, was nearly filled to capacity.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) highlighted the various leadership roles Clinton has held in his introduction of her. Clinton was most recently the Democratic nominee during the 2016 presidential election and the first woman to run as a major party’s candidate for the White House. Clinton has also been the first lady of Arkansas, first lady of the United States and a U.S. senator from New York.

“This woman has been an advocate her entire life for women and children,” McAuliffe said. “As Secretary of State, her voice was always heard all around the globe. She has been a trailblazer her entire life.”

Clinton gave her own remarks about women’s leadership before sitting down with Virginia first lady Dorothy McAuliffe for an interview session. The audience and the press did not have the opportunity to ask Clinton any questions.

“Now, leadership is not just in politics,” Clinton said. “Leadership is also necessary in the private sector, in academia, in media, in your community life. Everywhere we go in a democracy, we expect people to help lead us.”

GEISINGER MEDICAL CENTER — Former Secretary of State and U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton is speaking at a national health symposium at Geisinger Medical Center near Danville.

Walking on stage with a broken foot, Hillary Clinton was welcomed to the Danville area.

Clinton was the keynote speaker at Geisinger’s National Health Symposium, which brought together medical professionals from all over the country.

Instead of being just a speaker, Clinton and Geisinger president/CEO Dr. David Feinberg sat on stage and had a chat about health care. Clinton spent a lot of time talking about universal health care.

“We should try to be figuring out how to cover everybody at an affordable cost and get better results,” Clinton said.

Hillary Clinton Guest Edits Teen Vogue

Amber Randall Civil Rights Reporter

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served as the guest editor for the “resistance and resilience” issue of Teen Vogue magazine.

Clinton decided to guest edit the magazine for teenage girls because she believes Teen Vogue understands that girls can by stylish and smart at the same time, she wrote Wednesday in an introduction for the magazine.

“I love seeing articles about the search for the perfect makeup remover next to essays about running for office (I have strong opinions on both topics, but we’ll get to that later). Teen girls are a powerful force for good in the world, and it’s refreshing to see that reflected in these pages,” Clinton wrote.

Clinton also took a minute to once again reflect on her loss in the 2016 presidential election, telling readers that she knows the past year has been hard, but that she appreciates the messages of encouragement they sent her. To commemorate the issue of “resiliences and resistance,” Clinton said she would be offering advice that she received from those letters.

“All in all, this issue is a celebration of resistance and resilience. I hope you’ll take that message to heart, because the world needs your passion and determination more than ever. So keep marching, keep speaking up, and as Shirley Chisholm once said, ‘If they don’t give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair,’” Clinton wrote, signing off her letter with “I believe in you.”
