Manhattan County Chair Assemblyman Keith Wright is dead wrong. (And so is Bronx County Chair Carl Heastie.)
By this time I'm pretty sure you already know about the desperate struggle we’re having to maintain the strength and future of Black and Hispanic communities in New York State.
You should know that the way the lines have been drawn to define our districts is detrimental to our communities. The proposed lines will dilute the power for our people that we have gained through hard work and strong leadership.
Usted debe saber, que en esta ocasión, deseo tajante y firmemente rechazar, refutar, y negar toda referencia hecha a la Organización de Ministros Hispanos de New York y a mi persona por grupos que han venido tratando de confundir al Ministerio hispano respecto a preferencias politicas en la República Dominicana.
What a slap in the face to all Bronx residents – especially to all the Members of the Bronx Assembly Delegation!
Yes, my dear reader, you should know that the New York State Assembly and Senate leaders have submitted proposals for re-districting the Congressional district lines in the Bronx, carving the Bronx into five Congressional Districts, and neither of them is a pretty picture.

You should know that I am just calling it the way I see it: the way the district lines have been drawn for New York’s Congressional seats indicates to me that there are some people who still believe in colonies.

There is another story floating around where many people are claiming that Senator Grisanti threw the first punch and that he hit a woman. If this is so, these are very serious accusations.

The government is cutting social services for the poor, to the elderly they are reducing their meals and closing their senior centers, they are cutting our children’s education and turning their backs on the needy… all of this to balance the state’s budget.
My dear reader, you should know that all these aberrations are happening to the poor in our communities and the governor continues to cut their services. At the same time there are certain institutions that receive billions of dollars at the expense of the suffering poor.
