Dear Mayor Fierberg:
Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to meet with me in
your office last August 19, 2002. I enjoyed meeting you, Mr. Shuel Dorfman
and Mr. Rony Ikar.
During our time together, I invited you to visit Orange County, New York.
We would be honored to have you. Very briefly, Orange County is the home
for West Point Military Academy, Woodbury Commons factory outlet shopping
village, and very significantly, the oldest Jewish owned and built home
in North America called the Gomez Mill House. My home community of Middletown
is noteworthy for our downtown public library and Orange County Community
College. I would be delighted to arrange an opportunity for you to address
our community as well as introduce you to the County Executive, the Orange
County Legislature, and other local officials including our countys
I have included some brochures that accent many of the highlights of Orange
County mentioned above.
Furthermore, I would be honored to welcome you as a call-in guest on
my weekly radio news show on WTBQ 1100 AM. Please contact me, if interested,
so that the proper arrangements can be made.
Please direct your attention to my website, www.jeffberkman.com, as I

Once again, thank you for your hospitality. It was a pleasure to meet
with you and I look forward to our next meeting.
