Washington, DC –Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) released the following statement regarding the passing of Reverend Thomas Vose Daily, Bishop Emeritus of Brooklyn: 

            “Bishop Daily led an exemplary life of service, all while enhancing the lives of so many New Yorkers. In a changing time of economic turmoil and racial tension, Bishop Daily was a steady voice for Brooklyn’s poorest residents.
