Bronx News Roundup Nov. 5

There is a shortage of local Bronx news today. Understandably, most newspapers are focused on Barack Obama’s history-making win in this year’s Presidential Election.

Though Democrats now control the State Senate by a two-seat majority, two Bronx Democratic State Senators Rubén Díaz, Sr., and Pedro Espada, Jr. may not support the democratic majority leader. Along with two other NYC Democratic Senators, Carl Kruger and Hiram Monserrate, they say they are forming an “independent caucus.”

Local Bronx election results have been released for the Assembly, State Senate and Congress races. The statistics for some West Bronx candidates:

78th Assembly District: Jose Rivera (Dem) received 15,870 votes (90.25%)
80th Assembly District: Naomi Rivera (Dem) received 17,482 votes (77.23%)
81st Assembly District Jeffrey Dinowitz (Dem) received 25,522 votes ( 95.96%)
86th Assembly District Nelson Castro (Dem) received 16,865 (95.43%)
28th State Senate District Jose M. Serrano (Dem) received 56,368 (93.74%)
32nd State Senate District: Ruben Diaz (Dem) received 66,001 (98.68%)
33rd State Senate District: Pedro Espada (Dem) received 45,625 (97.39%)
16th Congressional District: Jose E. Serrano (Dem) received 112,204 (96.58%)

Politics aside, Bronx-based health-food restaurant, 4Food, is currently receiving “Corporate Social Responsibility" consulting help from IBM who agreed to assist the business in developing a company that is both financially successful and also beneficial to the community. An IBM global CSR survey revealed that some younger consumers actively choose products from socially-responsible companies, especially those with fair labor and environment-friendly practices.
