STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON PASSING OF FORMER DEPUTY MAYOR BILL LYNCH
"Bill Lynch stood at the center of one of our city's most important moments, the election of David Dinkins as New York City's first African-American Mayor. He sought to better our city by bringing people together and served as Deputy Mayor because he wanted to make a difference for New Yorkers. He spent his life passionately pursuing his ideals - civil rights and social justice. Many of the most influential political leaders - here in the city and also on the national level - sought his counsel. He lived a remarkable life, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family."
