Buried at the end of an article in Thursday’s Business section is praise for an man appointed as trustee to manage the affairs of low or moderate income residents in a development abandoned by the developer.
This man, Barry Mukamal, championed the rights of families “not capable of fending for themselves against a multimillion-dollar financial giant.”
Mukamal spent hundreds of thousands of dollars that might never be reimbursed. I applaud the judge in the case against the developer, who said that Mukamal “is to be praised for his selfless conduct as a trustee acting in the finest tradition of a fiduciary.”
There is no glory here, no fame, no front-page news. Just a man with a strong moral compass doing his job.
Never miss a local story.
