I am your Commissioner

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am YOUR Commissioner.

I was duly elected by YOUR votes.

I stand on the merits of my record.

I am the lone commissioner who supported the CHABAD NOVA, attempted to resolve the issue and still attempt to do so to this day.

I proposed the Hate Crime Resolution for this City, and have taken my own initiative in meeting with Rabbi Pinney to clarify any misconceptions.

The anti-Semitic comments and illustrations were not registered, sponsored nor authored by me, and I vehemently condemn any such act or participation in any such act, which depicts an affront to any member, or, any part of our civilized society.

I am, and will remain, fully committed to the position that the people of this great city have elected me to serve in.

Thank you.
