It’s funny that George thinks he needs an introduction, only because I feel like everyone in this community knows him. I think he’s sort of the non-religious Godfather of the West Village.
He’s an extraordinary and special man.
I always say yes to George (when I can) for all the reasons we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with him. I think there is no better and fiercer advocate for our community than George. He is brave and tenacious and stubborn and charming.
I also think these concerts at St. Veronica are divine. We are grateful for what he did, especially on February 10th—such a dreary night where we all came together to have this extraordinary experience with exquisite musicians.
George, we thank you for your commitment to all of us and especially for your advocacy for all the seniors in the community. You mean so much to us.
