We are updating our contact
information on retirees. We are also collecting information about
our retirees for them to consider participating as a volunteer advisor to
the PA and or PARA. As we all know times are really tough. Even the
Port Authority is going through the same business hardships as many
other organizations. There may be times when the PA and or
PARA may need someone with your particular experience or expertise.

Note: Each page of
the website will have a Menu Bar that will always be at
the top of every page and have pull-down choices so you can more easily
navigate to a web page. This Menu Bar has a main menu across the
top and each button has as many sub-menu's to take you to just about
every page in the website. As you scroll up or down the menu will
always try to find the top of your browser window. I will
keep a text only menu in very small print on the bottom of every page. If you
pass your cursor over any word and it becomes larger and italicized that
means there is a link attached to that word, note: I usually use yellow,
green, blue or the default gold for links, just click on the word and you will go
to the linked page. A little tech talk for the advanced - there
are well over 8,500 Hyperlinks embedded in this website that will
connect you to over 1,500 external links. If you can't find
something of interest for you while surfing this website then send me
