New Ro Celebrates Pride Month

I am grateful to live in a community that encourages all people to be their authentic selves, celebrates love, and welcomes every neighbor of good will.  In this spirit, we raised the Pride Flag at City Hall this morning and will also celebrate our first-ever Pride Festival at Library Green on June 10 at 2:00pm.  Love is love.

My Memorial Day Remarks

I was greatly honored that New Rochelle’s Veterans Advisory Committee invited me to give the keynote address at our community’s Memorial Day observance this morning, and I took the opportunity to offer remarks that are among the more personal and heartfelt I have delivered in my time as mayor.  Sacrifice is ennobled by the justice of its cause, and it is for all us to uphold that cause.  Please read.
