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.

New City Judge

Today, I am proud to announce the appointment of Jared Rice to the New Rochelle City Court. Jared has compiled a remarkable record of professional and public service as an attorney, member of the New Rochelle City Council, and community leader.  Working at his side for almost a decade, I have seen firsthand his intelligence, integrity, temperament, and commitment to justice – all of which will be great assets to the New Rochelle Court.
