Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Fellow veterans, thank you for being so important to us, so good to our country, and for being in this Council Chamber today.

I accept this resolution on behalf of all veterans organizations and all veterans throughout this great city of ours. I am truly moved that my introduction and this citation are within the same agenda this morning.

I will assure you that while at the helm of this office, I will keep this resolution, the Year of the Veteran 2014, and you, the veterans of Philadelphia, my first priority. God, family, and the love for your country are what those who have served are taught. I hope to work as hard for veterans as all of the directors before me did.

Thank you all for this resolution. That will remain always on display in Room 127, our office, as a reminder that veterans are always number one.

Our first public hearing will be March 5th at 2:00 p.m. where I'll be present, and it will be here in Council Chambers. Again, March 5th at 2 o'clock.

Thank you very much.
