No ‘Sign’ of Rivera in Norwood Commerical Corridor

15 Aug

This poster, promoting the Assembly campaign of Mark Gjonaj, was one of dozens up on storefronts yesterday on Bainbridge Avenue and East 204th Street in Norwood, a key commercial destination in the 80th Assembly District. We didn’t see a single poster for incumbent Naomi Rivera, who recently received support from Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. (not insignificant since Diaz was a key player on the diverse team toppling her father, Assemblyman Jose Rivera, as Bronx Democratic boss a few years ago).

Rivera has had a tough week as the New York Post highlighted a personal Facebook account of Rivera’s along with hiring her boyfriend, Tommy Torres, now a Brooklyn City Council candidate, as a no-show staffer. The good-government group Common Cause is now laying into Rivera for this. (Rivera doesn’t seem to have a campaign website, though Torres already has a campaign Facebook page for next fall’s Council election)

The Norwood News has many more links and details on the coverage of Rivera’s troubles.
