Mayor Holbert Remembers 911

Hello, my name is Ben Hobert and I serve as the Mayor of the Village of Woodmere. This is my Assistant Daphne Evans and we work together. On 9/11 of 2001, it was a very difficult day. I was serving as a general manager of a cable television station and l noticed on the television that a plane had flown into the twin towers. I immediately received a call from Channel 5 where we were working and they asked me to come in because of my news background. I was dispatched to go out to Burke Lake airport to observe and to see what was taking place if there were any other air catastrophes if you would, that took place. It was a very devastating time, very devastating period that we’ll remember those nearly 3,000 people that perished in those flames.
