Many people have expressed sadness at the loss of former New York City Councilmember Walter McCaffrey, and gratitude for his many years of exemplary public service.

I would like to add my own note of admiration.  He devoted himself to improving the quality of life forNew York Cityresidents and worked very hard on behalf ofQueens, his lifelong home.  I saw firsthand the impact of his hard work.

Just one of his many professional accomplishments was enabling Sunnyside Community Services to construct a new senior center.  The $1.77 million he allocated made it possible for us to build our Center for Active Older Adults, which was completed in 2008.  This center now has a daily attendance of approximately 200 seniors, who are able to enjoy a hot meal, stay healthy and active, and apply for benefits.

I am honored to have known Walter McCaffrey and I offer my condolences to his friends and loved ones.
