The letter was sent out right after the passage of the “Never Forget the Heroes” act, which will continue compensation payouts to 9/11 first responders until the year 2090.

“The frustratingly long process to this important moment is marked by too many losses,” reads the letter. “NYPD Detective Luis Alvarez and FDNY Firefighter Ray Pfeifer both spent their final days calling for their brothers and sisters in the 9/11 to be taken care of and I wish they had lived long enough to see their hard work result in this tremendous achievement.

“It is with this in mind that I request you hold a parade down the Canyon of Heroes in which our city can once again pay proper tribute to those who took care of us on 9/11 in the days, weeks and months following the attack.”
