Leading Voices from the
Front Lines of COVID-19

A special report from The Villa Voice
to members of the Armour Villa
Neighborhood Association

As part of our special COVID-19 coverage we reached out to a diverse range of community leaders and partners
to get their perspective. This special report explores the Impact of COVID-19 as seen through the eyes of those on
the front lines through a series of interviews and discussions with Steve Wagner, President of Armour Villa
Neighborhood Association. Each of these individuals had a significant role to play in responding to this crisis,
and their experiences, perspectives, and insights are valuable and engaging. These conversations with the
following government and community leaders took place during the latter part of May and into early June:

Michael Fosina, President and CEO, NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital
Dr. Andrew Amaranto, Director of Emergency Medicine Department,  New York Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital
George Latimer, Westchester County Executive
Ruth Walter, Westchester County Legislator District 15
Shelley Mayer, New York State Senator, 37th District
Nader Sayegh, New York State Assemblyman District 90
Mary Marvin, Mayor Village of Bronxville
Thomas Meier, Yonkers Deputy Commissioner of Public Works
Captain Frank Cariello, Yonkers Police Commander 1st Precinct
Joseph Citrone, Yonkers Fire Department Deputy Chief
Sally Pinto, NNORC Coordinator
Sherry Saturno, Executive Director Gramatan Village, Bronxville

On behalf of Armour Villa, I would also like to thank all our community partners and
restaurants who worked with us to help feed and support the heroes at NYP Lawrence and
other first responders around the community. We are deeply grateful, and I personally want to
thank all of these thought leaders for taking the time in the middle of this crisis to speak with
me.
Steve Wagner
