REMARKS ON THE NEW ROCHELLE
POLICE FOUNDATION

An original speech delivered June 16, 2004, at the
American Yacht Club, Milton Point, Rye.

Nancy and I are glad you came.

We share your admiration for our wonderful low-key but every effective Chairman Charlie McCabe; our great police commissioner of national renown, Pat Carroll; City Manager Chuck Strome; Chief Judge Sandy Scher; my fellow directors, who work so much harder at the foundation’s business than I do; and our next New York state assemblyman, Domenico Procopio! (laughter) (applause)

In just a few short years, our Police Foundation has transformed law enforcement in our city. Thanks to your dedication and generosity, the lives of our officers have been enhanced, and their mission made easier. We have all been grateful for the privilege of supporting and backstopping the service of the New Rochelle Police Department.

The first requirement of any society is public safety. Before you can have a just society, or a compassionate and caring one, you have to ensure domestic tranquility. And only then can you make the community stronger, sweeter, and more agreeable for all our citizens. Only then. All our other aspirations are held together by this notion.

And also by the reputation and stature of our great police commissioner, Pat Carroll. (applause)

He and Chairman Charlie preside over a frugal board of directors, so you can be sure your money is well invested. The New Rochelle Police Foundation is a tightly run ship, an effective entity with a relevant, focused sense of mission.

So, I guess it remains for me only to thank Nancy Curry O’Shaughnessy for having this nice party. (applause)

And also Commodore Everett, Vice Commodore Furnary, and Mr. Tim McCormick for providing this spectacular venue to celebrate your generosity.
