Served For Eleven Years as City Clerk

Read my remarks in memory of Dorothy Allen.

The City of New Rochelle suffered a terrible loss on June 3rd with the passing of Dorothy Allen. Dorothy served our community as City Clerk with distinction for eleven years. As those observing our Council proceedings know, she was a familiar and reassuring presence at the Council dais and at our conference table, and she led a team that helped literally thousands of residents with inquiries large and small. Dorothy also contributed to New Rochelle through countless hours of volunteer service to civic organizations and community endeavors.

I was in California at the time of Dorothy’s memorial service, but had the privilege of writing one of several eulogies, read on my behalf by Council Member Marianne Sussman. If you are interested, the text of the eulogy is HERE.
