The Governor made this pronouncement with great fanfare and excitement, using a giant screen to show the three of them wearing Mexican hats with the caption: The 3 Amigos.

LOS NUEVOS TRES AMIGOS: ¿DIFERENTES EN QUE?

LO QUE USTED DEBE SABERPor el Senador Rev. Ruben DiazDistrito 32 Condado del Bronx, New York718-991-3161

Usted debe saber que durante el discurso del Estado y la presentación del presupuesto el Señor Gobernador Andrew Cuomo hizo mención de su intención de viajar en grupo a la Ciudad de Mexico acompañado del Presidente del Senado Dean Skelos y el Portavoz de la Asamblea Sheldon Silver. 

Lo interesante del asunto es que al hacer el anuncio del viaje a Mexico, con mucha fanfarria y retratos en una gigante pantalla, mostro retratos de ellos tres vestidos con sombreros mexicanos bajo el titúlo “Los Tres Amigos”.

Greetings from Senator Rev. Rubén Díaz as we celebrate the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On January 19, 2015, we celebrate the life and legacy of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. I extend warm greetings to my African-American brothers and sisters and to all people of good will who follow Dr. King's example.

On April 4, 1968, Dr. King was taken from us, much too quickly and much too violently. Yet, the manner in which he left us is not what I wish to dwell on as we commemorate his life. Rather, I believe it is important to reflect on the lessons he left us, the lessons of his life and the lessons of his legacy.

My Wishes and Prayers in 2015 for my Friends, Colleagues and Foes

What You Should Know By Senator Rev. Rubén Díaz 32nd Senatorial District 718-991-3161 My Wishes and Prayers in 2015 for my Friends, Colleagues and Foes In this first week of the New Year, I would like to express my wishes, prayers and desires for my friends and foes for 2015. You should know that some of my wishes and prayers will be very hard to achieve but nevertheless, there's nothing wrong with dreaming - even if those dreams might never come true. My first wish is for Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver: that they be left alone by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. As I said before, this may be a more difficult prayer to be answered.
