There has been a bit of confusion and controversy over an announcement recently posted to the City of New Rochelle web site.
I sent a series of questions to City spokesperson Kathy Gilwit based on the concerns raised to me; she got a response from New Rochelle Development Commissioner Michael Freimuth (below).
Talk of the Sound Questions:
1. What is the word-for-word difference between the original proposal and the modified proposal?
2. Why were words added or removed?
3. What was/were the precipitating event(s) that drove the decision to make a modification?
4. What is the technical or legal effect of the change in language?
5. What is the practical effect of the language?
6. Was Monroe College a factor, directly or indirectly, in the decision to create what became the Modified Bid Posting Armory.

"Just wanted to stop by and say hello, wish all the dad's back there a Happy Father's Day and give you an update on how I'm doing overseas," writes PFC Skeene.

"Hope everything's good in New Rochelle." added Skeene.
"Let the people of New Rochelle know I'm proud to serve my City, my State and my Country."
Jabari Skeene's family lives on Lincoln Avenue in New Rochelle. On December 9th, the New Rochelle Fire Department responded to a "Christmas Tree" fire at his family's house at 147 Lincoln Avenue.
The United Veterans Memorial and Patriotic Association has previously reached out to the PFC Skeene's family.
