Hey Bloomie, Don't Speak For Me! Let Pataki recognize the Three Retired FDNY Members! sign now

As an active or retired member of the FDNY (or family member of a FDNY member who perished on 9/11), I strongly oppose Mayor Michael Bloomberg putting words in my mouth as related to the three retired FDNY members who died on 9/11. "The mayor's office says it has been an FDNY tradition that only those who die on active duty get the honors, and the vast majority of firefighters support that tradition." (Mayor Says Not To Honor Retired Firefighters Killed On 9/11 Same As Active Members- see full article below)





I support these men, my brothers, being listed on the wall of honor and resent Mayor Bloomberg stating that I, a member of the FDNY (or family member of a member who died on 9/11 saving others), do not.





In fact, this issue was brought up at the union meeting in October and membership was overwhelmingly supportive. The City also claims that the families of the other 343 aren't supportive of their inclusion either which is NOT true. Contrary to what the Major's office says, this issue DOES have FDNY's support--- and Steve Cassidy,UFA President has also written a letter stating that the retired men have the Union's support. The fact is that an overwhelming MAJORITY of FDNY firefighters, lts, capts and chiefs support listing the 3 retired men.











Full NY Post Article 11/26/06:


Mayor Michael Bloomberg weighed in this weekend on how to memorialize three retired firefighters who were killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks, saying that they should not get the same treatment as active city employees. The families of James Corrigan, William Wren and Phillip Hayes, have been trying to get the retirees' names inscribed on the Wall of Honor at Engine 10, Ladder 10, on Liberty Street. But, because the men were not active city employees, Governor George Pataki is poised to sign a bill giving the men posthumous Medals of Valor and the right to have their names inscribed along with the 343 active firefighters who died. But now Mayor Bloomberg's legislative director tells the New York Post that he hopes Pataki does not sign that bill. The mayor's office says it has been an FDNY tradition that only those who die on active duty get the honors, and the vast majority of firefighters support that tradition. Corrigan's widow tells the paper that she's upset Bloomberg is against the bill and she says it is unfortunate the legislation, which was passed by both houses of legislature last week, is required in the first place.
