Bronx News Roundup Jan. 27

Assemblyman Jose Rivera, the former Bronx Democratic Party Chairman, has launched an appeal in the State supreme court with the intention of winning back his old leadership position.

In his weekly column, Bob Kappstatter wonders if we'll hear Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion give his annual State of the Borough address this February.

Assemblyman Peter Rivera, whose brother has been in the news recently, isn't impressed with the way the governor and his aides treated Caroline Kennedy. Rivera's also been speaking out against Kirsten Gillibrand, Paterson's eventual Senate pick, and her somewhat conservative positions on immigration.

Councilman Larry Seabrook isn't a fan of Gillibrand either - specifically her longstanding support of gun rights. Last year, the former congresswoman earned a 100 percent rating from the NRA.

As the Senate's housing committe chair, will State Senator Pedro Espada Jr. do what's best for tenants? Housing adovcates don't think so. More here.

Cops and local residents are working together to help stamp out graffiti - or at least curtail it.

The women's basketball team at John F. Kennedy High School is having a terrific season.
