Joel Rivera on Filtration Hot Seat Tonight

Council Member Joel Rivera, a likely candidate for Bronx borough president, will be on Gary Axelbank's public affairs talk show tonight on Cablevision, channel 67. The BronxTalk PrimeTime host, who is also an activist on the filtration issue, is certain to ask Rivera if he believes, like Assemblyman Ruben Diaz does, that he was "misled" by city officials who promised that the project would use Bronx workers and that it would cost $1.2 billion (the estimate is now $2.8 billion) and if Rivera supports holding hearings on the cost and jobs issues in the City Council.
The show airs at 9 p.m. and is repeated at the same time throughout the week. Viewers can call in during the live show.
Here's a recent article and editorial about the issue in the Norwood News.


  1. Greg, thanks for the reminder. I watched the show and will post something soon on this.
