Mayor Dwyer’s Column
Greenwood Lake Mayor
By Jesse Dwyer
With Great Sadness and Regret
It is with great sadness and regret that we mourn the life of two NYPD officers who were assassinated over the weekend. It is an unbearable consequence of ignorance for anyone to be targeted because of their race, ethnicity, gender, and now, their occupation. But this is not just any occupation. This occupation puts men and women in harm’s way every single day that they clock in. Members of law enforcement serve a vital role in our society and without them, our society fails. The members of this occupation are mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters. They are our neighbors, our friends, our former classmates and they are, in many cases, the ones who save our lives, the people we call when we desperately need assistance, the first responders to save a choking child’s life. They are our men and women of the law enforcement community and their lives matter. The Village Board in the Village of Greenwood Lake stands with Law Enforcement and we will not tolerate threats on the lives of any member of our department under any circumstance. The Village of Greenwood Lake will hold a candlelight vigil on Friday, December 26th at 6pm in CVS field to honor and mourn the fallen officers of this recent tragedy.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
On behalf of the Village Board and staff at Village Hall, I would like to wish all a very Merry Christmas and offer my wishes of a prosperous, healthy and happy new year to all.
