Statement From HUD's Shaun Donovan on Passing of Ex NYC Mayor Ed Koch


 "If you agree with me on nine out of 12 issues, vote for me. If you agree with me on 12 out of 12 issues, see a psychiatrist."

-Ed Koch-


Statement from U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan

On the Death of Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch

Friday, February 1, 2013

 “It is with sadness and profound respect that we mark the passing of Ed Koch, a man who embraced and embodied the promise and character that is New York City. Mayor Koch’s legacy can be found throughout the nation’s urban areas, but nowhere more so than in the homes and neighborhoods that make up the thriving metropolis of New York City today. Through innovative housing programs and policies, as well as the revitalization he encouraged and the investment he facilitated, the Mayor transformed our city and its neighborhoods, creating a housing model for the nation. He understood that a city’s strength and its future are intricately tied to its residents and their homes and that only by building communities comprised of affordable housing that strengthens and diversifies can we truly realize our promise and prosperity. We will always remember the contributions of one of the nation’s greatest housing innovators and advocates.”

He was NYC I would think, met him once and he was as real as anyone I had ever met.

I thought Ed was great, Charles. A very serious man filled with the pleasantly unexpected, delightful charm of homespun humor.

Rest in peace Ed Koch.....we are not from NYC and didn't know the man but he seemed to want what was best for the City.

I haven't been watching the news much lately so I missed this. Ed Koch served his city well, may he now rest in peace.

Yes, it was a loss to the city when this man passed on.

David - Ed Koch was certainly an icon that went beyond New York City - may he rest in peace.

Ed was down-to-earth, Al, Peggy. He rode the subways to work when he was mayor.

Ed was fun to watch as the judge on People' Court for a couple of seasons, Silvia.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) over 7 years ago

Yes it was, Barbara. Thanks for commenting.

He's was a great champion, not just of housing, but of our nation Michael.

His great sense of humor could get us all through some very bad times.
