open yet truthful,
caring for all New Yorkers,
dealing fairly with his opponents,
speaking his mind.
The premier mayor of N.Y.
The above was part of a poem I wrote in 7th grade about my favorite people, including Mayor Ed Koch. Mayor Koch was a tremendous role model to me in the way that he always spoke his mind and stood up passionately for what he believed in.
We will miss you Mayor Ed Koch. You were a great man.
