“Today we recognize the achievements of one of New York’s most dedicated public servants, Robert Morgenthau. “Ever since his first appointment to public office in 1961, when President Kennedy tapped him as the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Bob’s name has been synonymous with the justice. “For the last thirty-five years Bob has been on the front lines of New York’s most dangerous battles. Whether he was fighting to keep drugs off of our streets, guns away from criminals, or criminals out of our board rooms, Robert Morgenthau served his city with a quiet dignity that belied a tenacious drive to serve justice.“On behalf of all New Yorkers, I thank Bob for his dedication and service to the city, the state and the country.”
