The Hon. Peter F. Vallone, Sr., former Speaker of the New York City Council and longtime civic leader, will inaugurate a new lecture series on Government & Politics in New York City , Stan Altman, Dean of the Baruch College School of Public Affairs announced last week. Four lectures a year will explore the optimal balance between government and politics in the management and administration of New York City. The inaugural lecture will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2003, 5:30 7:00 pm at the Colleges Newman Conference Center, 151 E. 25 th St. (b. Lexington & Third Aves.). This event is free and open to the public.

  Dean Altman cited Peter Vallones consistent support for the funding of public libraries, for Mayor David Dinkins community policing initiative, safe cities, safe streets, and the creation of the Peter Vallone Scholarships (which have helped thousands of students afford a college education) as examples of Vallones commitment to good governance and the public interest. Peters career exemplifies balance between the political issues of the day and the need for good government, Altman said.
