The Greenburgh Town Board appreciates comments from residents at its open meetings.  Recently, comments have been made that, whether intended or not, were hurtful to other members of the public because the comment perpetuated racial or religious tropes and stereotypes.  We believe it is appropriate to remind everyone that bigotry and hate have no place in Greenburgh.  As we move forward we will work together to educate each other around this issue.  Our goal is to maintain a robust and constructive dialogue.  We are confident that this Town can continue to have these dialogues.

MOMENT OF SILENCE

In memory of former Greenburgh Police Chief Donald Singer, appointed as a Police Officer on October 10, 1960, promoted to Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, and ultimately appointed Chief on August 25, 1976, serving 25 successful years as Chief, 32 years in total, before retiring on May 31, 1992.  Prior to his law enforcement career, he served in the 30th Bombardment Squadron of the 19th Bombardment Wing of the United States Air Force until his Honorable Discharge on May 3, 1950. Chief Singer continued his military career as a member of the New York National Guard, achieving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

In memory of the 1,082,265+ individual victims of COVID-19 who have died in the United States, 6,681,433+ deaths worldwide, each leaving family members and friends too soon

In memory of the people in Ukraine killed during Russia's invasion and relentless intentional targeted bombing of civilians in apartment buildings, hospitals, train stations, schools and children centers, deliberating targeting utilities used by civilians to leave them without electricity and heat through the brutal winter weather, with mass graves being found after invaded areas have been retaken, all in Russia's effort to destroy Ukraine and its people, who are forced to fight for their land, their freedom, and general democratic principles.  May they rest in peace and peace be restored to Ukraine
