is a true Native New Yorker.
...Bill is a dedicated and courageous community leader, a friend to the people, and problem solver with a strong commitment to improving the quality of life for all New Yorkers.
Growing up in the multi-cultural, working class neighborhood of Clinton, Bill
learned first hand the importance of loyalty, family and community.
learned the meaning of adversity at an early age and proved how to overcome it.He
decided to enter the computer field when it was in its infant stages.The cost of part of his
education for computers came from the GI Bill and the remainder came from a loan made by his
Aunt Jean. Bill became a multi-faceted computer technologist who toiled many hours in various disciplines of the Information Technology (IT) industry working for various leading-edge computer companies.His
many successes are attributed to a no-nonsense work ethic and the ability to make solutions where others could find none.Some of the firms that benefited from Bill's support during his
30 year technology career are Goldman Sachs
, First Boston Corporation
, Dean Witter
and Securities Industries Automation Corporation
(SIAC).Bill also supported a variety of government installations such as the Naval Air Development Center
(NADC), the US Postal Service
and Brookhaven National Labs
.Whether he served as Regional Manager, Systems Business Analyst or Regional Technical Support Engineer, the customer's satisfaction always came first.
In the business world, Bill's reputation as a problem solver and a dedicated supporter of his
customers needs is second to none.
Bill's communication talents and community activism were first propelled into action back in the mid-seventies.When Bill learned that senior citizen neighbors living in a Forest Hills apartment building were being illegally evicted he became a housing activist for the first time fighting for the rights of seniors as tenants.
In 1992, Bill
opposed and triumphed over a tough pro-landlord law firm that had the reputation of never losing.An independent thinker with foresight, Bill's innovative work as an award-winning community television producer brought the subject of saving the rent regulations to the New York City public long before it became a major issue in 1997.It's no small wonder that all of the community neighbors who have asked for Bill's help in housing issues retained their homes whether or not it was necessary to accompany them to housing court. In 1995, Bill founded the DeWitt Clinton Park Restoration Foundation to restore and maintain a long neglected park from further destruction as a result of a privatization by the city that was a dismal failure and reportedly lost two million dollars.
Bill also stepped in to help the children of his
community who were filled with false promises of a baseball league by establishing the Joe Horvath Baseball League
in 1997 with the help business leaders in and outside the community. Bill
is a strong supporter of the welfare of children when it comes to health and education.He
is on a crusade to establish a children's hospital called Jolly St. Nicks - A Place for Children and a school that will be named DeWitt Clinton Institute of Technology and Environmental Sciences
is truly following in the steps of one of his
many role models -- DeWitt Clinton -- who Bill believes when he
was mayor of New York City
, accomplished more for the city than any other who followed.Bill also developed a plan that will fund the renovation and upkeep of all community parks in the city with a five borough concert tour named the Phoenix Bird Rising Project.
For more than twenty-five years, Bill Murawski
has proven to be a devoted friend to the people of the city wherever he
calls home.Time and time again Bill has proven that progressively responsible fiscal methods and sound social interactions are the way to "get things done" to improve the community and protect the rights of his
It can all be summed up in the words of one of Bill's long-time friends and supporters . . . . . . .
