NY fire chief apologizes for anti-Semitic remarks
Suburban New York City fire chief says he was horrified after reading words he had uttered against Jewish town supervisor.
A suburban New York City fire chief has hand delivered a letter of apology to a Jewish town supervisor for anti-Semitic remarks he made, The Journal News reported Saturday.

 

 

Fairview Fire Chief Anthony LoGiudice visited Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner Friday to deliver the letter.

 

The newspaper reported earlier this week a retired firefighter claimed LoGiudice often used an anti-Semitic slur when referring to Feiner.

 

On Thursday, the board of the fire district confirmed LoGiudice used inappropriate language.

 

In his letter, LoGiudice said he was horrified after reading in The Journal News the words he'd uttered and said using a slur to express anger is never appropriate.

 

Feiner told the newspaper the apology was a good first step but hoped the fire chief would also visit a Manhattan holocaust museum.
