Last Wednesday, Families of September 11 asked you to submit your feedback on the issue of the placement of names on the Memorial design.  In total, we received 2,225 responses to the three question poll we featured on our website.  Many members also sent in written responses, and we thank all of you for your contribution and participation in this important process.  The information you shared will be forwarded to the LMDC by our two Board members who are members of the Families Advisory Council.

1.  Do you support Governor Pataki's decision to display shields for only uniformed rescue workers?
