Christopher’s Voice

April is Autism Awareness month, and I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the inspiring work of New Rochelle’s own Chris Greco, who founded Christopher’s Voice in honor of his son. Among many other accomplishments, Christopher’s Voice has spearheaded successful partnerships with more than 250 First Responder agencies throughout the country — helping to ensure that public safety professionals have the knowledge and training to address the needs of children with autism.

State of the City – 2019

Delivering the 2019 State of the City Address

I just finished delivering my 2019 State of the City Address to an overflow audience at City Hall.

My remarks highlighted our community’s significant and exciting progress on a range of economic, environmental, and social priorities, while also acknowledging persistent challenges that require our continued attention and focus.  The State of our City is the strongest it has been in my lifetime, but it can be stronger still. Please read the whole speech by downloading the text as a PDF or by copying this address into your browser:

Video should be posted shortly, and I will share it when available.

NRPD Defuses Crisis

A tense afternoon in New Rochelle, as a man threatened to jump to I-95 from the bridge at North Avenue, forcing the closure of Thruway traffic for two hours. Law enforcement converged on the scene, and, fortunately, the New Rochelle Police were able to talk him down. I am proud of the good work of our men and women in blue, as well as the New Rochelle Fire Department and partner law enforcement agencies with New York State, Metro-North, and Yonkers, all of whom coordinated.
