Earl Brown Still Borough President, For Now

Last Tuesday Bronx voters came out to support Soundview Assemblyman Ruben Diaz Jr. as the next borough president. Diaz will replace acting BP Earl Brown who is filling in for Adolfo Carrion who fled the Boogie Down to be Obama's urban affairs director.

But it's not clear when the transition will happen.

After speaking to the office's press secretary, Liseth Almeida, it's clear that we aren't the only ones confused about the process. "I don't think we have all that info clear yet," she said.

Almeida could not confirm when Diaz will be sworn in, but she did say that Brown is still serving as acting BP. She added that the BP's communications director, Anne Fenton (now with Bill Thompson's mayoral campaign) left last week.

Calls to Diaz's camp have not been returned.

A little more than 28,000 people, less than 5% of eligible Bronx voters, voted for Diaz in the April 21 special election.

We will continue to update readers on the process. Stay tuned. Or chime in if you know what's going on.
