Statement on the Passing of Bill Perkins

“My sincere condolences go out to Pam Perkins and the entire family over the loss of one of Harlem’s greats, Bill Perkins,” said County Leader Keith L.T. Wright.

“Throughout his decades of public service, Bill always let you know where he stood and who he was fighting for. Harlem, our city, our state, and our nation are all the more better thanks to the battles that Bill Perkins took on during his time in the New York City Council, the New York State Senate, and as a District Leader in our beloved Village of Harlem. May his acts of justice across our community be celebrated for eternity, and may he forever rest in power.”
