Middletown Mayor Tony Perry sent off a scathing letter to Alice M. Greenwald, President of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City, condemning the decision to not light the Twin Beams Tribute to the victims and heroes of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the United States of America. Perry offered to host the tribute in Middletown.

Perry, still angry, told MMM that he doesn’t expect Greenwald to respond to his letter or send the lights to NJ. “But we’ll have beams that she and DiBlasio will see on 9/11,” he said.
Deputy Mayor Tony Fiore has started raising money for light beams in Middletown. Donors can make tax deductible contributions to Middletown WTC Memorial Gardens, c/o Mayor’s Office, 1 Kings Highway, Middletown, NJ 07748
