Statement from Senator Rubén Díaz

State Senator Rubén Díaz today released the following statement in response to a comment that was made by Senator Neil Breslin on September 1, 2010 at the College of Saint Rose.

“Senator Breslin is in no position to judge the ethical or legislative seriousness with which other members of the Senate take their jobs.  He stated that ‘we have to rid ourselves’ ...  of  ‘people who don't take their responsibilities either ethically seriously or legislatively seriously...’ then specifically mentioned Senator Espada, Hiram Monserrate, and myself.  His comment was unconscionable and uncalled for.

From the Desk of NYS Senator Eric Adams

Dear Constituent:

 In early May, in the aftermath of the attempted car bombing in Times Square, I issued a media advisory to commend and congratulate the professionalism and hard work of the NYPD, local law enforcement, and counter-terrorism officials. As Chair of the New York State Senate Committee on Homeland Security, I applauded their efforts to make the streets of our cities, State, and nation safer. Further, I specifically praised Lance Orton and Duane Jackson, the two street vendors who alerted police to the suspicious vehicle by embracing the crucial concept embodied in the slogan ‘See Something, Say Something.’

The United States has contributed around $150 million to relief efforts in Pakistan following flooding which began in late July and continues to devastate the region. Yet, as the death toll rises and more are left homeless, the need for more money and supplies is increasing.

Jose Peralta (D-Corona) joined Mohammad Razvi of the Council of People’s Organization and Amy Paul of South Asian Youth Action at Kabab King in Jackson Heights to urge community members to donate money and supplies to reputable aid organizations in Pakistan.
