      Do you really need an answer for that or are you just taking the opportunity to bash the mayor?

      • robin hensel

        It’s a legitimate question.

          Really? These awards were given to people ( by the mayor of a city) who in many different ways benefited the city said mayor represents,
          What this man did was fantastic but it did not occur in Little Falls and it does seem that he was recognized, rightly so, for his actions.

            He IS LITTLE FALLS CITIZEN and you bet this helps THIS CITY!! It shows there are Littlesfallsians who ACT against intolerance. Doesn’t matter what city he helped rescue from the grips of white supremacists….he is one of OUR OWN AND OUR MAYOR SHOULD AWARD him the Mayor’s pride award. My humble opinion.

            Well I guess she missed her chance with Brian Kobilka(and I am sure many others) if that is the criteria you wish to use.

            There’s another great candidate…..she did miss the boat on him.
