Bronx News Roundup, March 24

The Daily News has another editorial blasting Adolfo Carrion, the former Bronx borough president who now works for President Obama.

Only two City Council members (from 51) had a perfect attendance record at meetings and hearings over the past year. Yet again, Maria Baez (District 14) has the worst record, showing up less than 50 percent of the time. She recently told the Norwood News that illness and a busy schedule were to blame. Helen Diane Foster (District 16) is also in the bottom five. The Gotham Gazette has more on "who's engaged and who's not."

One of the parks built to replace parkland gobbled up by the new Yankee Stadium will finally open next month - or at least part of it will.

According to Bob Kappstatter, State Senator Ruben Diaz Sr. and his son, Assemblyman Ruben Diaz Jr. (who's running for borough president), are still being investigated - this time by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's office. Last week, Kappstatter reported that the feds had dropped a two-year investigation into the Diazes and a non-profit they founded.

A Bronx man, told by doctors he'd never walk again following a terrible car crash in December, is back on his feet, and says he has God to thank.

This is a little behind the times, but interesting all the same. In November's presidential election, Obama pulled in 95 percent of the vote in Congressman Jose Serrano's 16th Congressional District - a higher percentage than any other district in the country.
