Remarks by Mayor Bloomberg at a Public Hearing on Local Laws

"The last bill before me is Introductory Number 613 sponsored by Council Members Addabbo, Avella, Baez, Comrie, DeBlasio, Gennaro, Gentile, Gerson, Gioia, Gonzalez, Katz, Martinez, McMahon, Oddo, Provenzano, Quinn, Recchia, Reed, Sanders, Vann, Yassky and Speaker Miller.  This bill renames 45 thoroughfares and public places throughout the City.  The first nine names I will read are street named in honor of people who died on September 11, 2001, and although this is a modest gesture, this local law demonstrates the City's commitment to always remember those who perished that day.   I will now read those names, which include Police Officers, Firefighters and civilians.

Firefighter LT Robert F. Wallace Street, in Queens
FBI Special Agent Leonard W. Hatton, Jr. Street, in Manhattan
Mark and Stephen Colaio Way, in Manhattan
B.C. Joseph Marchbanks Way, in Manhattan
B.C. Fred Scheffold Way, in Manhattan
Richard M. Caggliano 9-11 Memorial Way, in Brooklyn
P.O. Donald J. McIntyre Way, in Manhattan
David Michael Ruddle Street, the Bronx
Captain Terrance S. Hatton Way, in Manhattan

"The remaining 36 names represent individuals or entities that are being honored for their lifetime accomplishments, and while it's not possible to describe the reason each individual or entity is deserving of a street name change, each Council Member who submitted a name presented a detailed justification for this honor.

"I will now read the next 36 names.
