Thank you.

Thank you citizens of Ardsley, Greenburgh, Dobbs, Hastings, Elmsford, Edgemont, Hartsdale, Scarsdale, etc. You were the driving force behind this. You were the engine.

Thank you Dina, Merav, Erich, Gary, Nicole, Heeral, Kristen, Michelle, Lorraine, Ellen, Greg, Klautz, Adam, Rachel, Ken and everyone else who donated their precious spare time and energy to the effort. The boots on the ground.

Thank you Paul Feiner, Diana Juettner, Francis Sheehan, Kevin Morgan, Ken Jones and Judith Beville, and Chris McNerney for helping us learn the ropes, and, of course, putting up with us.

Thank you Peter Porcino and Nancy Kaboolian for the late night sage advice over email.

Thank you Joanne Sold and George Holt for so fiercely protecting our childrens’ futures.

Thank you MaryJane Shimsky, Thomas Abinanti, and Andrea Stewart-Cousins for being so kind and responsive.

Thank you JPI. Thank you for realizing The Jefferson at Saw Mill River was not such a good idea. We know you put a lot of time and money into this, but it takes true business discipline to not throw good money after bad. We know it was a painful decision…so, again, thank you.

And thank you AkzoNobel. You were our neighbor for decades, and you are finally understanding that you can’t leave it worse than you found it. We look forward to working with you to figure out an appropriate future for that property.

We’ve won this battle, and we move on to the next. We must be vigilant. We must be strong. We must stay together.

The future of our Rivertowns depends on it.

Again, thank you.
