NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson updated his website on Wednesday with more details about his time at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
Bramson said he was busy Tuesday with convention-related activities while eagerly awaiting the main event that featured First Lady Michelle Obama. This included a breakfast meeting with other delegates from New York, including Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer and other New York Democrats.
“He caused a pleasant stir as he greeted well-wishers,” said Bramson of Schumer in another post from Charlotte.
Bramson also attended a gathering funded by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, which included mayors from Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
“Although the event was nominally non-partisan, I doubt there were any Republicans present,” said Bramson. “The speeches here, like those at breakfast, fit the expected pattern, with an added twist of self-congratulation for the all-important role of the mayor,” he said. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi also spoke.
“I am very glad that my relative unimportance excuses me from this duty, because holding the crowd’s attention is a thankless task,” said Bramson in the post.
Bramson also said he attended a Planned Parenthood rally at the NASCAR Hall of Fame for reproductive health care and choice.
