Statement of Michael R. Bloomberg on the Passing of Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell

Harlem and the South Bronx gave us a great one. Colin Powell devoted his life to serving our country, and he did it with exemplary skill, courage, honor, and integrity. His work with America’s Promise and CUNY, which I have been glad to support, may be his greatest legacy, since it’s helping to produce more leaders like him. I was lucky to work with him in both government and philanthropy – and to call him a friend. We are a stronger nation because of him, and I will miss him greatly.
