City Hall

I invite you to the annual State of the City address on the evening of Thursday, March 5th — 7:30pm at the Davenport Club.

It’s exactly like the State of the Union, except that the Davenport Club is not quite as fancy as the Capitol Building, the audience will not feature Supreme Court justices, ambassadors, senators, or cabinet officials, the television ratings are likely to be low, very low . . . and maybe just a few other minor distinctions.  Okay, I admit it, many major distinctions.  But, hey, did the President personally invite you to attend his speech?!  That’s gotta count for something.

The speech starts at 7:30pm.  It’s free and open to all comers until the room fills up.

Prior to the speech, the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce sponsors a cocktail hour at 5:30pm and a dinner at 6:45pm at a cost of $50.  The dinner is by reservation only, so if you want to attend that portion of the evening, be sure to reserve a spot by emailing the Chamber  at or by calling 914-632-5700.

I hope to see you on March 5th.
