PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – Peekskill Mayor Frank Catalina called for an independent audit of Peekskill's finances when he was sworn in as mayor on Wednesday, Jan. 1.

Catalina, a Republican, made the city’s financial management one of his signature themes during the election last fall. Catalina unseated Democrat Mary Foster in the November election.

“If I’m wrong about the city’s finances I will be the first person to come to this podium and apologize,” Catalina said during his New Year’s Day speech, according to The Examiner.

Catalina also called for a public referendum on a controversial central firehouse project be held in May and the establishment of a Peekskill Diamond Commission to begin planning for the city’s 75th anniversary in 2015, according to The Examiner report.

Catalina, an attorney, was the city's deputy corporation counsel from 1982-1990 and corporation counsel from 2000-2001. He also served on the Peekskill Board of Education, Housing Authority, Industrial Development Agency and Planning, Zoning and Human Relations Boards. He is also a member of the Peekskill Rotary Club and several other Peekskill civic organizations.
