SENATOR CHARLES SCHUMER ON ARTHUR Z. SCHWARTZ:

Whenever anyone calls on Arthur to do something good, he’s there and he doesn’t ask what’s in it for him and he doesn’t ask how much money there is and he doesn’t ask anything. He just does it. And you know, when you think about it, he is the kind of person who – we use the word with a lot of cliché and it’s overused– but he truly is a great American. You know when the founding fathers set up the country – if you read the Federalist’s Papers, what was their greatest doubt? Well, they had a lot of doubts. There was dealing with this new little beast called democracy in a republic. But the thing they worried about most is whether the citizenry would come forward and stand up to the plate.

You know, for a thousand years people had let someone else run things and they were really worried that the only people who would get involved in their government, whether it be running for office or, more importantly, just working to see that the government worked, were people only of self-interest. And of course we have a lot of that. We have a ton of apathy, people don’t care. And then it seems like all too many people who get involved are doing it because they’re saying there’s something in it for numero uno. But there are lots of people who are in it for the right reasons. And if you had to pick somebody who sort of –this room if filled with them, that’s one of the nice things about Arthur and his friends– but if you had to pick somebody who symbolizes that, it would be Arthur Schwartz.
