Mayor Bloomberg extends sympathy on Bajan PM’s passing

NEW YORK, NYThe following is the statement from NY mayor Michael Bloomberg on the passing of the Barbados prime minister early Saturday.

“The death of Prime Minister David Thompson, at such a young age, is a tragedy for the people of Barbados. He worked tirelessly on their behalf and always had their best interests at heart. I enjoyed meeting with him at a reception for leaders from the Caribbean held at Gracie Mansion.  There are tens of thousands of New Yorkers with roots in Barbados, and we join together in mourning his passing. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest sympathy to his wife, Marie-Josephine Mara, and their three daughters.”

  1. Please note that the Mayor of New York City is Michael Bloomberg, and NOT David Bloomberg as stated in your report above.
