O’Connor honored for community service


CONGRATULATIONS! — PEF President Wayne Spence commends Reg. 11 Coordinator Bernadette O’Connor on her new honor.


PEF Region 11 Coordinator Bernadette O’Connor was recently named a “Woman of Distinction” by the Caiden Cathedral of Praise and Worship in Brooklyn.

O’Connor, who received the honor September 26, expressed her gratitude for the award that cited her “stellar” and “monumental” contributions to the lives of everyone in the community she serves as well as to her PEF union brothers and sisters that “I fight for every day.”

O’Connor said she was also grateful for citations proclaiming her exemplary service that were sent by Brooklyn Borough President Erick Adams, state Assemblywoman Latrice M. Walker and NYC Councilmember Robert E. Carney who represents the 36th District in Brooklyn.

“I want to thank Bishop-elect Dr. Kevin Bond, his entire staff and the Citadel Cathedral of Praise and Worship” O’Connor said.. “I also would like to thank my Number One supporter, my husband and family, for allowing me to do the work.”

O’Connor said she also appreciated “PEF President Wayne Spence, Leah Gonzalez, who is PEF’s downstate political director, and all of my Region 11 members who came out to support me on this wonderful occasion.”
