Unity and the Community Annual March and Rally
In support of the Nine Victims and their Families in the Charleston, South Carolina shooting 

On Saturday, June 27th Unity Baptist Tabernacle will hold it annual Unity and the Community March and Rally in Mount Vernon. This year’s theme of the event is "We march and rally for Mount Vernon." 

Unity and the Community is a well-organized, well-attended annual event, which focuses on social justice, economic empowerment, and community service. Each year, the event seeks to raise consciousness about an issue, which impacts the community, and rally support around positive solutions to solve the problem.


This year’s march and rally is also in support of the nine victims and their families of the horrific racially motivated shootings by Dylann Roof, a 21 year old white male, as they attended bible study at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.   

As in the past, this year’s event will include clergy, community leaders, elected officials and residents in a grand "March For Mount Vernon." The year's call-to-action will focus on solving the problems surrounding high crime rate and violence, quality of life issues, Memorial Field, Fourth Street Park and building community pride.

A rally will begin at City Hall at 10:00 a.m. with a host of speakers addressing issues of education, community development and Stop the Violence. Legislature Lyndon Williams, who has been instrumental in working in the community to organize these events in the past says, “This is a public expression of our support for the victims, their families and church members of the horrific mass killings in Charleston, South Carolina last week.” He said, “We must stand together against hatred and bigotry in all forms”. 


“We are marching for Mount Vernon and Charleston, S.C.. This is an opportunity for us to come together in a public way to face up to our problems and find solutions," he said. "There are challenges that need to be addressed. As a community, we should deal with challenges so that we make Mount Vernon better for the future”.

The group will then march through the streets of Mount Vernon to Unity Baptist Tabernacle, 101 South Second Avenue, where a Block Party will take place. The Block Party is an annual event of Unity Baptist Tabernacle, along with other clergy and elected officials. Rev. Edward Mulraine, pastor of Unity Baptist Tabernacle and founder of Unity and the Community Day says “The purpose of Unity and the Community Day is to bring everyone together for the betterment of Mount Vernon. We want every business owner, community organization, civic leader and clergy member to join one another in support of Mount Vernon. On this day we recognize the best of Mount Vernon.” The pastor called for the removal of the confederate flag from all state buildings in South Carolina and for Congress to enact sensible gun laws that prevent persons such as this young man from easy access to guns. 

Honorees for the day include: Henry Wilson of Y-COP, The Mount Vernon Fire Department, Family Ties, Rev. Hugh Farris - Pastor, Bowen Memorial Baptist Church and Heather Mumphrey - Director All-Star Cheerleaders. In addition to the honorees there will be voter registration, a job fair, entertainment including comedians and choirs, children’s games, food, a host of vendors and community information. All are invited to attend the march and the block party.

Maloney, Joined by Local Brewers, Pushes for Legislation to Cut Taxes for Small Breweries in Hudson Valley


Tax Cuts Will Help Small Businesses Compete, Grow Local Economy


At Newburgh Brewing Company, Maloney and Hudson Valley Small Business Owners Detailed Economic Impact of Legislation

Newburgh, NY — Today, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney, joined by local brewers, called for passage of legislation to cut taxes for Hudson Valley small breweries during an event at Newburgh Brewing Company. The Small Brewer Reinvestment and Expanding Workforce Act, or Small BREW Act and the Fair Beer Act will help small breweries create local jobs and grow the economy. Rep. Maloney was joined by representatives from Newburgh Brewing Company, Captain Lawrence Brewing, Rushing Duck Brewing, Defiant Brewing, Sloop Brewing, Broken Bow Brewery, Plan Bee Farm Brewery, and Keegan Ales.

“Besides making great beer, New York’s craft breweries employ thousands of people and contribute over $2.2 billion to our economy every year,” said Rep. Maloney. “We should be encouraging these small businesses to bolster the economy and create jobs, and the best way to do that is by cutting their taxes. I will continue to fight for local small businesses like Newburgh Brewing so they can keep growing, keep hiring, and keep making the country’s best beer right here in the Hudson Valley.”


At present, taxes make up 40% of the cost of beer. The Small BREW Act and the Fair Beer Act would reduce the cost of beer slightly, while encouraging growth in the brewing industry. Currently, about 90% of all brewers produce 7,000 barrels per year or fewer, qualifying for the tax cuts in the Small BREW Act and Fair Beer Act. The beer industry directly and indirectly employs more than 2 million Americans, accounting for $79 billion in wages and benefits, from factory employees to farm workers, brewers to bartenders.  Every job in the brewing or beer industry supports another 45 jobs in industries like agriculture, marketing, manufacturing, transportation, warehousing, financial services, grocery, restaurant and retail.

ALBANY, NY - Four years ago, United States Army Specialist David R. Fahey Jr., 23, was killed by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan. Today, the State Senate passed a law sponsored by State Senator Terrence Murphy that honors Fahey by officially naming a bridge on Route 129 in his hometown of Yorktown as the Specialist David R. Fahey Jr. Memorial Bridge.

"Yorktown lost one of its finest the day David Fahey gave his life so that others could be safe and free," Senator Murphy said. "David understood how proud we all were of him, and he sent us home a flag from Kandahar that was displayed in the town of Yorktown when I served as Councilman. He was a hero and a true soldier."

Specialist Fahey was raised by his aunt and uncle in Yorktown and he grew up on Baldwin Road with his siblings and cousins and attended Cavalry Bible Church. He was born in Norwalk, Connecticut. Coincidentally, a bill is currently pending before the Connecticut State Legislature to christen an overpass along on I-95 over Richards Avenue in Norwalk in Fahey's honor as well.

Enlisting in the Army in 2007, Fahey served in Korea and in 2010, he was deployed on combat operations to Afghanistan. Sadly, he was killed by on February 28, 2011, while serving with the 504th Military Police Battalion of the 42nd Military Police Brigade.

He was the recipient of the Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Korea Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, NATO Medal, and Drivers and Mechanics Badge.

Upon his redeployment, Fahey had been slated to become one of New York's finest as a member of the New York City Police Department. Murphy praised Fahey's faith, charm, athletic abilities, love of classic cars, and his ability to put a smile on anyone's face.

"The historic Hunters Brook Bridge, located on Route 129 near the border of Yorktown and Cortlandt, overlooks the Croton Reservoir, and is less than three miles from Specialist Fahey's childhood home," Murphy said. "There is no more fitting way to remember David's noble service than by rededicating this bridge in his honor. We are forever in his debt and are forever grateful to his amazing family for the wonderful soldier they raised who made the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of freedom."

The bill has already passed the State Assembly and now heads to the Governor's desk.
