Mayor Segarra Statement on the Passing of Nelson Mandela

“Today, the world lost one its greatest leaders, one of its greatest champions of humanity and a transformational human being. Mr. Mandela will always be remembered for his unrelenting pursuit of racial equality as well as his passionate belief in humanity. The world was fortunate to have shared his presence. We should honor him by continuing to advance his lifelong work of pursuing justice and equality for everyone. His passing is very sad but also a reminder of how personal determination can bring about seemingly impossible change.”


Mayor Segarra has directed all flags to half-staff in his honor.
