Early Start to BP Race

The New York Times reported on Sunday that the city’s term-limits law has led to a flurry of early campaigning for the 2009 citywide elections for Mayor, Comptroller, Public Advocate and Borough Presidents.

A graphic accompanying the story identifies two Bronx council members as candidates for Bronx Borough President: Helen Foster and Joel Rivera. Both have filed campaign finance disclosures with the New York City Campaign Finance Board.
Two other rumored candidates for Borough President have not yet filed any paperwork: State Assemblyman Ruben Diaz Jr. and State Senator Jose Marco Serrano. Serrano said he’s exploring the possibility.

“I’m definitely looking at all angles, but there is something to be said for where I am right now,” Serrano told the Norwood News. “The State Senate is controlled by the Republicans, I took a Republican seat by defeating Olga Mendez, and we are very interested in helping take back a Democratic majority.”

If Serrano and Diaz run, the Bronx could see four second-generation politicians running for the same seat.


  1. Senator Serrano is the best of the pack, regardless that his father is also an elected official.

  2. What a joke to think he's the best of the pack! Hah hah hah!
