Assemblyman Jeff Dinowitz at his post-election victory party April 21.
Diaz is scheduled to be confirmed tomorrow as the Bronx's new borough president.
On Monday, April 27, he appeared on BronxTalk with Gary Axelbank to give his first extended interview since the election a week ago and touched on a slew of different Bronx topics.
Mr. Diaz discussed a vision for his borough presidency, job creation, the water filtration plant in Van Cortlandt Park, housing, the selection of community board members, the BOEDC and economic development, the Kingsbridge Armory, and more. He also took several questions from viewers.
This was the former Assemblyman’s 14th appearance on BronxTalk. His first was in a debate in February 1996 before he was elected as the youngest Assemblyman in state history.
BronxTalk is produced by Jane Folloro and broadcast live on Bronxnet’s channel 67 Monday night’s at 9 p.m. and repeated each day at 9:30 a.m., 3:30 p.m., and 9 p.m.
