Lynch slams Community Board 1, Manhattan for denying honor to fallen PO/soldier

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch slammed the Community Board 1, Manhattan decision denying the street renaming in honor of PO James McNaughton, the first NYPD officer to die fighting to defend our nation against terrorism.

Lynch said:

“PO James McNaughton gave his life fighting the war on terrorism that started within the confines of Community Board 1, Manhattan with the attack on the World Trade Center. The decision to deny renaming one short street in honor of his sacrifice is absolutely reprehensible and is an insult to every NYC Police Officer and to every family who has lost a loved one fighting to defend our country. Every member of CB 1 who voted against this small honor should hang their heads in shame for this unconscionably poor decision.”
