SPECIAL WORLD TRADE CENTER MEMORIAL ASSIGNMENT:
In 2006, Frank was appointed by Governor Pataki and Mayor Bloomberg to lead the effort to ensure a buildable World Trade Center Memorial. Frank was asked by Governor Pataki and Mayor Bloomberg to take hold of a budget that was spiraling out of control and, working with the families of the victims and all the other stakeholders, make it a viable project for New York and the nation. As a result of this effort, the Memorial design was aligned with the budget.
