The City of New Rochelle has established an African American Advisory Committee, comprised of nine community leaders appointed by City Manager Charles B. Strome, III. Reflective of the leadership and diversity of the Black community, the majority of members have associations with key community groups including the NAACP-New Rochelle Branch, the New Rochelle Municipal Housing Authority, the Remington Boys & Girls Club, NewROAR, and the Black Clergy of New Rochelle.
African American Advisory Committee members are: Nathaniel Adams, Dale Burnett, Dierdra Clark, Angela Davis-Farrish, Kwamain Dixon, Leslie Gaskin, Saye K. Konah, Mark McLean and Linda Tarrant-Reid. Angela Davis-Farrish is chair.
The committee will:
-Recommend actions, practices, and policies to address the concerns, needs, and interests of the Black community of New Rochelle.
-Facilitate constructive two-way dialogue between New Rochelle's Black community and decision-makers in local government.
-Enhance equitable access of Black residents to municipal services and information.
-Promote and initiate Black entrepreneurship, economic opportunity, and business development in New Rochelle.
-Promote dialogue and mutual understanding among all of New Rochelle's diverse constituencies.
Committee Chair, Min. Angela Davis-Farrish said, “Having the opportunity to facilitate open and meaningful dialogue about opportunities that can improve the quality of life for African American residents with City Officials is simply PRICELESS. We all look forward to working together.”
