STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON THE DEATH OF PRESIDENT LECH KACZYNSKI OF POLAND
"The death of President Lech Kaczynski of Poland and First Lady Maria Kaczynski and many other senior leaders of that country is an enormous national tragedy for Poland. President Kaczynski had a long and distinguished career of public service; he leaves a rich legacy of giving back to his country. I join the 64,000 New Yorkers born in Poland and over 22,000 New Yorkers of polish descent in mourning this loss, and I encourage all New Yorkers to keep the people of Poland in their thoughts and prayers."
