What You Should Know
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
By Senator Rev. Rubén Díaz
32nd Senatorial District, Bronx County, New York
Now it’s the Bronx Borough President’s Time!
You should know that the Constitution of the United States of America mandates that the President of our Nation, once a year, informs Congress about the current situation of the nation and presents his future plans for the nation. This event, which is broadcast live for all residents in our nation, is called the State of the Union Address.
It is also important for you to know that this mandate is followed by governors, mayors, city council presidents, and almost every elected official who oversees townships and municipalities.
Here in New York State, practically everyone has already given their State of their respective government or municipality Address. Starting with Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, and practically every other borough president, the speeches have been given.
Now comes the time for Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz, Jr., who in more familiar settings is called “Rubencito,” to render his Fourth Annual State of the Borough Address.
You will hear directly from the lips of the President of Bronx County, or as I refer to it: El Condado de Papa Dios. (Others who used to call it El Condado de la Salsa, now call it El Condado de la Salsa y el Merengue due to the great influx of Dominicans who reside here.) Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz, Jr. will be informing us about the Bronx’s economic, housing, labor, educational, health, environmental, transportation, and social services situations. He will let us know all about his many achievements during his tenure, and share with us what he envisions for the future of this great county.
Yes, my friends, you should all come to this great event on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 11:00AM at James Monroe High School located at 1300 Boynton Avenue (on the corner of East 172nd Street) in the Bronx River section of the Bronx, where the Honorable Rubén Díaz, Jr. has invited everyone to come and hear his speech about the State of the Bronx and his plans for our great borough!
This is Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz, and this is what you should know.
