“I offer my heartfelt congratulations to Michael Greco, who has been nominated by President Barack Obama to serve as U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of New York. I am proud to have personally advocated for his selection to Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, given that he is both a Bronx native and of Puerto Rican descent, and that his story resonates with me so personally.

“During his considerable career as a New York State Police Officer, Michael Greco has proven himself to be a valuable asset to his department and our state, and a pillar of the community-at-large. Michael Greco has received numerous awards and promotions during his service to the New York State Police, indicating to all that he is a man of great competence and integrity. I am proud that he has been nominated to serve as U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of New York, and I am grateful to President Obama, Senator Schumer and Senator Gillibrand for supporting such an exemplary candidate for this important position,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
