Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer issued the following statement in response to the September 11 Memorial and Museum’s announcement of a “permanent dedication” to honor 9/11 survivors and responders:
“It’s good news that the 9/11 Memorial has agreed to honor 9/11 responders and survivors on the public site of the Memorial’s grounds.
“Just this past weekend, Firefighter Ray Pfeifer died from his 9/11-related cancer.
“A monument to him and his co-workers on the pile, and the thousands of other injured and ill 9/11 responders and survivors whose lives have been impacted by the toxins at ground zero is a modest and long-overdue signal we can send to honor their sacrifices– as I have been urging since becoming Borough President in 2014.”
