State of the City Address POSTPONED

With the guidance of public health officials and with the goal of focusing our full attention on the present coronavirus challenges in New Rochelle, we have decided to postpone the annual State of the City Address, which had been scheduled for tomorrow evening.  I look forward to setting a new date soon and to sharing my thoughts about opportunities for further progress in our city.

New Rochelle Urges Census Participation

A thorough and accurate Census count is critically important to ensuring that New Rochelle enjoys full representation at the county, state, and federal level, and to delivering vital financial resources for housing, transportation, and other essential priorities.  That’s why the City has established a “Complete Count Committee” to work with community partners and encourage maximum participation and inclusion.  Every New Rochelle resident deserves to be counted.

Lou, Jared, and Barry — Thank You

A bittersweet final City Council meeting of the year (and term) last night, as we said good-bye to three long-serving colleagues.

I offer sincere thanks to Lou Trangucci, Jared Rice, and Barry Fertel for their partnership, friendship, and dedicated service to the people of New Rochelle.  We are a better, stronger community because of their efforts.  And I hope each will find joy and satisfaction in the next chapters of their lives.
