RE:  A Local Mayor's Perspective Featured         in A New Book on Immigration and

        American Cities



Village of Patchogue Mayor Paul Pontieri's insightful and thought-provoking National League of Cities article entitled "A Local Perspective: For Mayors, It Is About Integration, Not Immigration" will be featured in a new book on immigration issues.  


The book, Immigration and American 

Cities: Trends, Practices, and Experiences, published by McFarland & Company, includes what is considered the leading articles on this important topic.

Congratulations Mayor Pontieri 

 on this distinguished honor!
