Monroe joins local contributors in support of community celebration
Monroe College has agreed to make a generous contribution to the City of New Rochelle’s community celebration fund in order to support the 2011 Memorial Day Parade.
In adopting its 2011 budget, the New Rochelle City Council preserved funding for the overtime costs associated with the Memorial Day Parade, Thanksgiving Parade and Fourth of July Fireworks, but eliminated funding for all other costs, with the expectation of soliciting and obtaining private contributions to maintain these much-beloved events.
John & Charles Valenti have previously committed to maintaining their sponsorship of the Thanksgiving Parade. Monroe’s generosity joins that of veterans groups, local businesses and community groups to ensure that the Memorial Day Parade, presented by the United Veterans Memorial and Patriotic Association and the City of New Rochelle, returns for another successful year.
"Monroe College's leadership exemplifies the kind of public-private partnership through which we can preserve our important community celebrations, even at a time of fiscal challenge,” said Mayor Noam Bramson.Read more
Outraged that a group of New Rochelle residents made critical comments about his Redistricting Plan during last night's Citizens to be Heard portion of the City Council Meeting, New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson bolted the stage to angrily confront startled members of the ad hoc Concerned New Rochelle Citizens' Redistricting Committee as they made their way out of the meeting.
"Don't piss on my leg then try to shake my hand", Bramson hissed at one committee member who attempted to greet the Mayor as he approached the group. A woman who overheard the remark was stunned by the Mayor's language.
The notoriously belligerent Bramson was especially upset over criticism of his redistricting plan contained in a press release distributed by the group earlier in the day.Read more
