County Legislator James Nolan has announced that he will introduce a legislative resolution supporting the renaming of the bridge to the Westchester Board of Legislators. The statement was released on Thursday, Oct. 26.
According to Nolan, Detective Frank Gualdino was a remarkable police officer who had a deep love for Yonkers and dedicated his life to ensuring the safety of its citizens. He went on to say that Gualdino’s sacrifice in the line of duty was the ultimate act of bravery and that it is our responsibility to honor his legacy of service for generations to come.
Gualdino, a former resident of Mahopac in Putnam County, dedicated more than two decades of his life to serving with the Yonkers Police Department. Throughout his career, he held various positions within the department, including the 3rd Precinct, Traffic Court, and the Traffic and Motorcycle Unit. Gualdino’s commitment to his work earned him a promotion to Sergeant. Despite his passing, his legacy lives on through his contributions to the Yonkers Police Department.
The unfortunate incident saw him losing his life just nine months before his retirement.
Nolan expressed a deep commitment to never forget the first responders and heroes who have served their communities with bravery and dedication. “Their sacrifices will always be remembered and honored,” he stated.
