To the Citizens of Bronxville:
Apr. 3, 2019: Thank you. Thank you for allowing me to serve as your mayor for another term. Your support means everything. I am honored, humbled, and filled with gratitude. Your faith in me drives me to want to excel every day in representing you with intellect and compassion, for I truly have the dream job – on a daily basis I speak with the most engaging senior citizens; talk to students from high school that I consider my friends; hear wonderful high-pitch hellos from second-grade pals, and speak with the most informed and often most patient residents I know, truly some of the finest people to cross my path.
Together we must preserve our village and treasure all of its intangibles – the way we look out for each other with no fanfare; the civility in which we conduct our discourse; the smiles and hellos on the sidewalks; and the compassion for those in need of our help.
Embrace our smallness – our collective love, respect, and compassion.
Aesop said, “A man is known by the company he keeps.” How blessed are we in Bronxville.
With enduring friendship,
