New York Mayor Eric Adams for Albanians: You are the best part of our city
The Mayor of New York, Eric Adams has not spared the appreciation for the Albanian community that works and lives in the United States of America. "During the naming ceremony of one of the streets of New York with the name of our National Hero, Gjergj Kastrioti Skënderbeu", Adams described them as good New Yorkers who work with dedication.
"When I talk about good New Yorkers, I talk about Albanians because you are representatives of good New Yorkers. You are very hardworking and dedicated. Believe in the public safety and quality of life we ??deserve in the city. I do not see you as part of a constituency, I see you as brothers and sisters. Therefore, since I am the mayor, we can say that we have the first Albanian mayor. This street design, where everyone who goes through it will raise their head up and see the name, will show what you consider a leader, a hero. He is the name we are giving to this street. It is so significant to know and respect him in a city that you have made as big as it is. Mr. Veliaj, thank you for being here among us, as we name this important road and I say to all my friends of the Albanian community:
A special moment was the speech of the leader of the majority in the US Senate, Chuck Shumer, who has made an important contribution to his career on the Albanian cause. "Love you so much! I love your community because you are the best in America! Many people came here in the '50s-'60s-'70s. All you wanted to do was work hard and ensure a good life for yourself and your children. And you did it! In my palace we have a man, a wonderful Albanian, who started working as a goalkeeper and now owns 8 palaces. This is Albanian history! "So, to see this community grow and make progress, you start to believe in New York and believe in America," said Sen. Chuck Shumer.
