Strauss Moore-Shiple Displays New York City Council Proclamation
By Norris McDonald
I was recognized for my New York environmental work with a Proclamation by the New York City Council on November 14, 2018 in the New York City Council Chamber. Councilwoman Inez Barron nominated me to receive the Proclamation.
I have decided to recognize an AAEA member by letting her display the Proclamation at her residence. I do this because Strauss Moore -Shiple went above and behind the call of duty by organizing a number of friends to attend the event and to celebrate with us in the Hamptons for two days after the event. Weirdly, a snow storm hit just as we were leaving Manhattan and a three hour drive took nine hours. Strauss Moore-Shiple drove.
Thank you Strauss. You helped to turn a simple proclamation ceremony into a grand adventure. This was one of the most exciting adventures of my life. And thanks to Strauss, I was able to share it with many of my best friends.
Note: Newly elected New York State Attorney General Letitia James is seated in the photo between Betty and me. She was the New York City Council Public Advocate and attended the ceremony in that role.
