  1. Pedro Espada is a disgrace to the West Bronx and the fact that he did not have an office set up and in place to represent the people of this district is proof that he really has no business here in this side of the Bronx. His leadership status is all in his head because pretty titles don't mean a thing. He is a freshman Senator who made an ass out of himself and Latinos with the other Amigos. Let hope he goes away soon.The guy is a fake and a phony and worst than Gonzalez.
