I am pleased to submit for the City Council’s consideration seven community appointees to New Rochelle’s Community-Police Partnership Board (CPPB.) These community representatives will join six others — four from the NRPD, one from senior City management, and one representing the City Council — for a total of thirteen. Here are brief bios of the full Board.
These appointees bring enormous breadth of relevant personal and professional experience to the vital challenge of advancing both public safety and racial justice in our community, and I am grateful for their anticipated service. I am grateful also to the dozens of other New Rochelle residents who applied to join the CPPB and look forward to a collaborative, inclusive process that invites meaningful public engagement.
