Lieutenant Governor of New York Delivers 2020 State of the State Address at Concordia College PDF Print Email


By Rebecca Portnoy, Associate Director of Communications, Concordia College   

Jan. 22, 2020:  Concordia College New York was honored to welcome Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul to campus on Tuesday, January 14, when she delivered Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2020 State of the State address: Making Progress Happen. The event held special meaning for Concordia as the College has taken Civics and Civility as its theme for the academic year.

Faculty, staff and students were joined, in the words of Lt. Gov. Hochul, by “a room of influencers” including Deputy Westchester County Executive Ken Jenkins, Commissioner of Westchester Veterans Agency Ron Tocci, County Legislator Ruth Walter, Mayor of Mount Vernon Shawyn Patterson-Howard, President of the Mount Vernon City Council Lisa Copeland, Bishops Angelo and Nancy Rosario of the Bronx Clergy Task Force, Rev. Troy P. DeCohen, President of United Black Clergy of Westchester, and several other leaders from Westchester and the Bronx.  

Before her address, Lt. Gov. Hochul commended Concordia and event organizer Viviana DeCohen, Director of Veteran and Military Affairs at Concordia College New York, for “all you do in filling a powerful human need for our veteran community.”

The Lieutenant Governor was introduced by Dr. Kathryn Galchutt, a professor of history at Concordia College, who extolled the benefits of active and engaged citizenship and pointed out the hope inherent in E.B. White’s description of democracy as “the recurring suspicion that more than half of the people are right more than half of the time.”

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
