Statement on the Passing of Mayor Edward I. Koch

This morning, New Yorkers lost a hero, Mayor Edward I. Koch, who served on StudentsFirstNY’s Board of Directors.  Mayor Koch embodied the spirit of New York City: ebullient, determined, brilliant, tough, full of life and humor.  As Mayor and ever since, he was a champion for public education and for the City’s children. In so many ways, Mayor Koch changed and saved New York.  May his memory be a blessing.
