WHEREAS Eleanor Roosevelt made it possible for Franklin D. Roosevelt to get back into politics after he was paralyzed by polio; and
WHEREAS, Eleanor Roosevelt, as First Lady of New York and as First Lady of the United States, served as FDR’s eyes, ears and voice, and assisted in the development and success of the New Deal; and
WHEREAS Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt provided the leadership that won WW2; and
WHEREAS, after FDR died on 4-12-1945, Eleanor Roosevelt masterminded the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations (which ultimately led to the Helsinki Accords, which led to the peaceful downfall of Communism in 1989), and promoted progressive causes; and
WHEREAS, there is no park in the United States named after Eleanor Roosevelt and renaming Croton Point Park would encourage tourism because the 4 A BETTER WESTCHESTER + NYS ASSOCIATION, INC. would establish a conservancy to beautify ELEANOR ROOSEVELT PARK AT CROTON POINT with statues and quotes relating to Franklin + Eleanor Roosevelt and to help maintain the park;
We support the proposal of the 4 A BETTER WESTCHESTER + NYS ASSOCIATION, INC., to have Westchester County rename Croton Point Park (located in Croton-on-Hudson, NY) “ELEANOR ROOSEVELT PARK AT CROTON POINT,” which would encourage tourism in Croton-on-Hudson, and urge Westchester County officials to rename the park, expeditiously!
