News Roundup for July 12

On the City Room blog yesterday, NYT reporter Jonathan Hicks looks at Joel Rivera and Ruben Diaz Jr., close friends who he says could become rivals if they both run for Bronx Borough President.

In other political gossip, the Politicker reports on Haile Rivera's dinner with Barack Obama. He was one of 4 small donors (Rivera gave $5) who were selected to have dinner with Obama in D.C. Rivera has said he's interested in running for City Council in district 14 (currently represented by Maria Baez).

The NY Sun reports that a civil rights organization is criticizing Mayor Bloomberg and schools chancellor Joel Klein for not taking a stance on the recent Supreme Court decision on school segregation.

And the Daily News's Bronx Boro section this week has 2 stories on Montefiore Medical Center, on its plan to buy Mercy Medical Center and on a $12 million gift to the Children's Hospital.

  1. Hi Friends,

    Just a small correction, I donated $25 to the Obama for President campaign which led to my selection as one of Obama's guests.

    You will find complete details of the dinner at: www.hailerivera.com
    (under News/Prensa section).
