At the June 20th Council Meeting, it was very rewarding to be presented with a proclamation from Mayor Dawn Zimmer for my selection as “2012 Hoboken Outstanding Senior Resident” in a program administered by Hudson County. I thanked Mayor Zimmer for nominating me with the suspected help of Leo Pellegrini, Director of Health and Human Services and Tom Foley, Division Head of Senior Services.
After my retirement as fire chief, I am privileged to continue to serve on the Hoboken Zoning Board of Adjustment and to help as a proud member of the Hoboken Community Emergency Response Team [C.E.R.T.], which is always at the ready, when called upon, to assist our Police and Fire Departments, and the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps in times of great emergencies such as floods, hurricanes and acts of terrorism.
All these activities take some time and this letter is to thank my wife Mary for putting up with me. I hope to continue to contribute as long as I can.
