New Rochelle's State of the City picture.
Inaugural State of the City

I'm still filled with joy following my inaugural State of the City Address. It was a memorable event held at the cherished and recently reopened Boys and Girls Club of New Rochelle Remington Site.


I was delighted to discuss the resilience of our city and the potential for us, as a community, to forge a more prosperous and vibrant future for New Rochelle. It was also an honor to showcase a few of our local small business restaurants! We are already planning for next year's State of the City!
