News Roundup for Feb. 23

Good morning, everyone.

The Bronx is the crappiest borough? Hurts to hear it, but in the way NBC means it -- the borough with the most summonses for violations of the pooper scooper law -- it's hard to argue otherwise. The areas with the most violations? Hunts Point and Mosholu Parkway.
Only affirms why Mosholu Preservation Corporation, publisher of the Norwood News, started the "Cut the Crap" campaign.

Not wasting a moment, Assemblyman Ruben Diaz picked up the endorsement of the Liberty Demoratic Club in his bid to replace Adolfo Carrion as borough president. Liz Benjamin also reports that the Bronx County Democratic Committee will support Diaz, confirming what we predicted a few weeks ago.

Speaking of the younger Diaz, his father, State Senator Ruben Diaz Sr. and the Three Amigos are still strategizing Liz reports -- they had lunch recently on Kingsbridge Road and are forming a PAC called the Three Amigos PAC. Kind of a cute name but since the whole point of it is recruiting more Amigos to pony up campaign cash, seems a little shortsighted, no?

Don't miss Gary Axelbank's BronxTalk show on channel 67 (Cablevision) tonight at 9 p.m. He'll be talking with Joyce Hogi and Karen Argenti of the Bronx Council on Environmental Quality about a variety of Bronx environmental issues. Call in with your questions/concerns. Gary also provides regular video commentary -- often on environmental issues -- right here on the Bronx News Network. Click here for his commentary on the filtration plant debacle and here for his views on the controversy surrounding Yankee Stadium.

    AT WHAT COST????

    What stops Bloomberg from just withholding the announcement of a special election to replace Adolfo Carrion?

    He did it with the property tax rebates. Delay, delay.

    He should NOT announce. Let them take him to court. By the time it's settled it will be September and we can just have a regular primary at no extra cost.
