Mayor Frank Catalina thanks supporters on election night.
Peekskill Mayor Frank Catalina

In a press release last week, the Peekskill Democrats urged Peekskill Mayor Frank Catalina and Chief of Police Eric Johansen to join them in supporting the “Statue of Liberty Standard,” which states, in part, “that our community is a safe place for everyone, no matter their creed, color, orientation or documentation…We look forward to working with the mayor and the police department to confirm that our practices are consistent with these principles.”

When asked about the statement, Catalina said the following:

“If they were truly interested in ‘working together,’ why didn’t they start with presenting the statement to me and Councilmen Torres and Vesce?” Catalina said. “Why did such a beautiful statement we all support have to be a partisan political statement? We all know why. I’m just wondering out loud.”

When asked if he took the statement to mean that the Democrats are calling for Peekskill to be declared a sanctuary city, Catalina said he had “no idea.”
