Ossining Operations Center Renamed for John-Paul Rodrigues

April 28 Ceremony Coincided with CSEA Memorial Day

  On Friday April 28, 2006 at 10:30 a.m., the Ossining Operation Center was officially renamed for John-Paul Rodrigues, a Village of Ossining sanitation worker who died on the job in 2005.  The renaming ceremony was scheduled to coincide with CSEA Memorial Day, the day set aside to remember civil service employees who passed away during the preceding year.  CSEA is the Civil Servants Employees Association.

The ceremony featured the unveiling of new signage for the Operations Center, which is now known as the John-Paul Rodrigues Ossining Operations Center.  Representatives from the state CSEA were in attendance for the ceremony.  The Rodrigues family and friends were also in attendance as were members of the public and the press.

“We feel that the renaming of the Operations Center for John-Paul Rodrigues is a very fitting tribute to one of our fallen workers,” said Linda Abels, Ossining’s Village Manager, “We are honored that members of the Rodrigues family and representatives from the state CSEA were with us for this important occasion.”
