Cabrera Gets Bronx Dems Nod, Another Blow for Baez

Dr. Fernando Cabrera, a pastor for a Kingsbridge-area church and head of the Councseling department at Mercy College, continues to distinguish himself in the crowded 14th Council District race to unseat incumbent Maria Baez, as reader's of Liz Benjamin's relentless Daily Politics blog already know.

On Monday, the Working Families Party endorsed Cabrera. Then last night he was endorsed by the Bronx Democratic County Committee, who's leaders last fall overthrew former Chairman Jose Rivera, who was vigorously backed by Baez during the takeover.

This represents a huge boost for Cabrera, 44, an unpaid pastor at New Life Outreach International Church and a former member of Community Board 7. (CB7 Chairman Greg Faulkner is also a member of New Life and supports Cabrera's bid.)

Cabrera still trails fellow candidate Yudelka Tapia in fundraising as of the last reporting period on May 15. Baez is third. Former senator Israel Ruiz, who indicated he might be throwing his hat in this crowded ring, is listed as having raised more than any other District 14 candidate, but it's unclear if he's actually running or if his fundraising totals are accurate.

Yesterday, Faulkner said the endorsements show Cabrera's growing support in the community. On Memorial Day weekend, Faulkner said some 90 people showed up at a campaign meeting, which far exceeded their own expecations. He said they'd hoped to get between 20 and 30 people.

In addition to Tapia, Baez and perhaps Ruiz, other District 14 candidates include former organizer Yorman Nunez (who officially announced his candidacy yesterday), Yesenia Polanco, a former staffer for Annabel Palma and Luis Diaz, and Miguel Santana, a city consultant.

Starting June 9, all candidates must gather at least 900 valid signatures to get their names on the ballot.

The endorsements should help Cabrera in that effort. Bronx Dem Chairman Carl Heastie said in the announcement that "we look forward to working strenuously to elect him." And the Working Families Party is known for its on-the-ground campaigning efforts.

Santana, who trails all the other candidates in fund-raising, says the endorsements won't stop his underdog bid and may, in fact, help it. He said it might mean Cabrera and Baez rise to the top of the field and engage in more direct conflict.

"Maybe they go at each other and beat each other up," Santana said earlier today, "and we're able sneak in the middle."

  1. Fernando Cabrera has worked in this community for this community for many years, taking his commitment and continues work to the city council only means positive changes to the Bronx.

  2. AWESOME! Looking forward to MY new city council. District 14 will be known throughout the country.

  3. Heastie got it wrong. Cabrera is against gay marriage & a woman's right to choose; he needs to either get with the times or move to the midwest. The Bronx needs representives who they can see themselves in, not bible-toting, fear-mongering, pastor-turned-politicians; look at Ted Haggard. Shame on you County!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Sorry. news flash to last blogger... Hastie did not get it wrong. Quite evident that this is the best candidate. He is being endorsed by many.... Change is needed in this district and Fernando Cabrera is the one who can deliver.
    So where in the midwest did you say YOU were moving to?

    ReplyDelete
  5. No matter what anyone says...Congrats to a well deserved leader in the community of district 14. Cabrera will lead with integrity. And, we should shy away from juvenile generalizations (ref made regarding Ted Haggard) and focus on whats at hand & and what is true...A great candidate! Apparently unions and leaders of the Bronx seem to think so...and Heastie does too. Go Cabrera!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Ummmm to the anonymous person who said about Fernando's values. I think your whole focus is on the wrong place. No where have I read that he is pushing "religion to his campaign." Attacking Heastie is unfair. You seem very angry that YOU/YOUR FRIEND DID NOT GET ENDORSED! Instead of trying to work together you want to bring division and tranish someone's character. Be cautious when pointing the finger.....you have 4 pointing back at you. I agree with the last blogger......So where in the midwest did you say YOU were moving to?

  8. Great to see that Cabrera supporters have flooded this blog! Cabrera is not the right choice for the City Council. We can not continue to elect individuals who go againts CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS!!!! Anyone who supports Cabrera should be ashamed of themselves!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. so what's the story? where does Cabrera stand on gay marriage and choice? maybe some of his minions can respond. thanks

  10. And is it really true that he was a registered Repub until last summer? that can't be true, right?

  11. My name is Carlos. What's Yours?June 3, 2009 at 9:24:00 PM EDT

    Wow..

    Showing up to work 65% of the time is disgraceful. Whoever does that should be ashamed of themselves. Whoever supports them should be ashamed. Wasting our tax payer dollars to continue providing a paycheck for a slacker, and ridiculous cell phone bills is a violation of my HUMAN RIGHTS! I've been getting robbed since 2002.. and not at gunpoint, but by crooked Bronx politicians.. All of a sudden, a worthwhile candidate steps on the scene and he's a fear-mongering leader who is a horrible choice? Give me a break! You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Congratulations to the Cabrera camp. Keep it honest, keep it real.

    ReplyDelete
  12. let me try this again and maybe you can help me out, Carlos. was Cabrera a registered Repub up until last summer? and does he support or oppose gay marriage? and does he support or oppose a woman's right to choose? thanks

    ReplyDelete
  13. It is unimaginable that someone will even consider support supporting Maria Baez. Do you homework! New York Times, Norwood News, and Daily News have reported Maria Baez having THE WORST attendance record, over $17,000 cell phone bill, and writing checks to a non-existing tenant organization (which she created). She has never attended a community board meeting, either in district 5 or 7. Should I continue? She is the one who was trying to sneak legislation last year against tenants. Fernando Cabrera is our best hope to turn 8 years of an absentee councilwoman Maria Baez. Fernando Cabrera will bring the leadership we need for our children and youth. Fernando Cabrera has my vote!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh wow! Cabrera supporters, please don't stoop to these levels of aggression. Apparently there is anger in the air. What's done is done. Cabrera is indeed endorsed by the Democratic Party. May the best person win.

    ReplyDelete
  15. The fact regarding Maria Baez's attendence record; 47.5% attendance with only one officially excused absence.
    The fact regarding Maria Baez's concern for tenant's rights; supported bill to allow landlord's to sue tenants for harrassment.
    The fact regarding Maria Baez's cell phone for 2007 fiscal year; $17,765.!!
    The fact regarding Maria Baez's allocation of funding; $7,500 issued to 2401 Davidson Ave Tenants Association - which cease to exist 4 years prior!?
    The fact regardng Maria Baez's concern for self preservation; yes to extending term limits over the public's clear voting record!

    Let's set the record straight. It's time for change. It's time to bring integrity, loyalty, trust to the people of the 14th District.
    Fernando Cabrera, moving forward for positive change in and for Bronx County!

  17. one more time, since many of Fernando's partisans seem to frequent this site. does he or does he not support the right of gay people to marry and women to have abortions? thanks

  18. To all those in favor of Fernando Cabrera:

    Fernando Cabrera's campaign is moving with a positive message. There is no need to attack any other candidate in this election. Let the endorsement speak for itself and don't worry about the garbage that anonymous commentators may spit out. District 14 deserves better.

    ReplyDelete
  19. As a life-long resident of the 14th district and someone who is deeply involved in the community and aware of local politics, I have never heard of or seen Fernando Cabrera. Maria Baez is also disgrace who is not worthy of representing anyone, so I won't mention her again. Fortunately they are not our only choices. Yudelka Tapia, who has raised the most money from LOCAL contributions, really does have a PROVEN history and record of community service. Search her name in the NYTimes. There are also 15 year old news paper articles and photos that document her role in her community in many other local newspapers.

    As for Fernando Cabrera, he may not be a bad man, but he is AGAINST gay marriage and a woman's RIGHT to choose, which poses a problem for those of us VOTERS who place the protection of EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL before religious beliefs. Ask him, if you dont't believe me.

    Moreover, the "Bronx Dems" should have perhaps done some demographic research before choosng a candidate to endorse. According to Census information, Dominicans make up the single largest minority in the ENTIRE city, with 12.6%. In the Bronx the statistic is magnified with 32.1%. (This info can be found at: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/census/nny.shtml. It is on page 16 of the Briefing Booklet)

    While a candidates ethnicity is not and SHOULD NOT be the qualifying factor for support, I am one who believes that elected representives should be relfections of those they mean to represent. Which begs the question: why has neither past "Bronx Dem County" or the current ever endorsed a Dominican candidate for a COUNCIL race in the Bronx. It seems rather strange to me.

    Ultimately, it is the working mothers and fathers of the district who know what it takes to raise a family here that will decide this election, not high-powered elected officials who often make calculated decisions and dismiss the common man.

    While Feranado Cabrera is not a bad person, and his commitment to his community is valient, it takes more than a rally for the Fordham Library to represent us in the 14th. I must commend Mr. Cabrera's "Blog Commenting People" however; the conviction and persistence with which they respond makes me think they might be on the payroll. :) Just kidding; they're just passionate, as everyone who takes the time to read & respond is. ;)

  20. Congrats Dr. Cabrera. Wonderful news!

    ReplyDelete
  21. The best candidate for the job is Yudelka Tapia! Time and time again she has proven herself to the community! She has lived in the district longer than most elected officials in the Bronx! We need real change! A woman who stood up to the public education system, stood up to injustices facing immigrant communities, stood up for woman's rights! She raised her four sons in the same neighborhood. She understands first hand what it takes to represent a community that has long gone unrepresented! She is the best person person for the job. Vote Yudelka Tapia!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I thought Cabrera was a Domini-Rican?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Endorsements have been confirmed! Why keep arguing...and throwing garbage out. What I understand is that Yudelka has tried to run for office several times and has never won? Your comments don't effect my decision of who I will vote for. Just like the working party, democratic party and et al....I will vote for the best qualified candidate - Fernando Cabrera.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yudelka raising more money? Last time I heard Cabrera had more monies in the bank and Tapia spent most of what she has raised already.... What are the most recent and accurate numbers of on hand monies? Anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  25. We love all the comments, but the anonymous ones aer getting kind of tiresome and not very helpful. Leads people to believe that it's the same person shilling for their candidate. If you support a candidate, why not make yourself known?

  26. Sorry I was in a rush Jordan. I just came across the blog a second ago.. I was the one who asked about the monies...

    ReplyDelete
  27. During that time I also checked the campaign finance board and found Yudelka Tapia seems to have spent about $16,000 of her raised money of which has carried over from previous campaign losses...

    ReplyDelete
  28. So it looks like Cabrera is actually ahead in money in hand... Go Cabrera, Impressive!

    ReplyDelete
  29. It is very easy to look at money spent and raised but why not look at contributors? Tapia has a lot more local contributors than any other candidate in the 14th District race, even the incumbent. This should speak for itself. As for the Anonymous that said Tapia ran before and lost. I believe it says a lot about a person who wants to serve her community and will continue to run and fight for her community whether she has lost or not. If we look at most elected officials, you will find that most of them ran and lost their first time around. Losing should never stop anyone from doing what they feel is the right thing for their community. Something else that should speak for itself. Cabrera claiming that he is Dominican and Puerto Rican is very surprising because his website and or Bio has never said anything about him being Dominican. Then again claiming that you are part Dominican in a district that has a large number of Dominicans will help his campaign. All those Cabrera supporters look into this to see the real Cabrera.

  30. folks, as i said in a previous entry on this election, this is not a football game where the most money and the loudest voices can automatially claim victory. this should be about about the candidate best qualified to tackle issues.

    and so far from these blog entries the only thinkg of consequence i've learned is that it appears that mr. cabrera is a former republican who is against gay marraige and a woman's right to choose. if voters want someone with that perspective fine, let them vote him in. but filling the blog with endorsements, cheerleaders saying go get 'em, and who knows what else, is of no value to anyone.

    what is his (and other candidates) stance on mayroal control? who will advocate best for community interests at the armory. who will fight the suffocating overdevelopment and ongoing deterioration of housing in the district? who will partner with advocates fighting for environmental justice at the reservoir? these are the issues that should be discussed on this blog.

    the rest of the clamor? embarrassing and disrespectful to the candidate and the voters, as far as i'm concerned.

    ReplyDelete
  31. GAX, won't you be hosting a debate at some point or a forum for candidates on your show as you usually do. If you have questions at that point, I am sure you will have all the time to ask them. As far as I see it, the blogs have a tab that reads "comment" above I see a LOT of "comments".

    ReplyDelete
  32. you people are all jokes!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. this race is for a legislative office, not for mayor. so to all candidates don't make promises you can't keep!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. TO GAX, I completely agree with you. The biggest problem with Bronx Politics is that the majority of people who come out to vote never really pay attention to substance, vision, or policy. In addition,they don't even look into the background of candidates. I used to work the polls, and I can't even tell you how many times on election day, the voters ask me "who should they choose?" This shows you how disconnected the people are from their elected's.

    As long as people in the Bronx continue to be uneducated about their leaders and hold them accountable, our communities will continue to be underserved.

    The truth is GAX, the Democratic leaders in place now under Heastie and in the past under Rivera need the community to be ignorant for their agenda to prosper. The mindless selfish ambitions of our decorated "Bronx Leaders" has left the community to perish.

    What real efforts has any of our leaders made to really educate the electorate? Hopefully someone could provide an answer with substance and not cheerleading rhetoric.

    Although, I am aware of all of the above mentioned, I am very optimistic. The forces of division in the Bronx right now will open the door for potential leaders to walk in. I am anonymous today but will be revealed after the revolution. I look forward to a new movement.

    And to all you blogger cheerleaders, I hope we could rechannel our energy to do great work for our community. Be informed, educated, and resilient to transorm the Bronx Political Environment.

    Richie Rich, I remember when I used to work with you. I always thought you had great learning and leadership potential. Don't get blinded by the immediate light in front of you. Put on your shades so that you have the opportunity to see a better tomorrow. Gax made a good point and you were completely disrespectful to him. No need to respond pay attention to the substantive parts of this message. (Revolution, Hope, Optimism, education, analyze)

    All other bloggers who are speaking rhetoric. What was the tax proposal that the mayor and speaker quinn agreed to for FY 2010? What will the long term impact of this tax policy be on districts such as the 14th, if the state approves it?

    Let's see who will be able to bring a substanative answer first? What is Baez's stance on the issue? What about her challengers? Does anyone blogging know?

    These are discussions that we should be having. Think about it....

    ReplyDelete
  35. Gax in the Bronx should be honest about who he is supporting. He is not an impartial person in all this. He wants Nunez, who is 20 years old. They want him to be the puppet of the radicals associated with the NWBCC

  36. once it's clear which candidates will officially be on the ballot in the 14th, i will most certainly invite them all to BronxTalk for a debate.

    i welcome anyone to review any of the many debates i've hosted in the 15 years of the program and i am proud to uphold every one of them as models of balance and fairness... and for their information value for constituents.... and this one will be no different.

    political newsflash... this is the first public announcement of this... and it's made here first on the bronx news network blog: we have confirmed today that on june 29 at 9pm BronxTalk will present a live one-hour televised debate between the four candidates for comptroller. we'll provide more public information about this shortly. but mark your calendar. i hope you will tune in!

  37. Hello again

    My post wasn't intended to be disrespectful to Gary- maybe the tone was confused in the writing. I may have been just as firm as he did on his post, it's not disrespect it's only my opinion. This is a blog welcoming "comments" I don't know how much more simple to put it.

    Anonymous, (in a non threatening and humble tone)I may have worked with you as I have with many many people in the old and new factions of the party. Who I stand behind is a candidate that I have supported YEARS before he had even planned to run. I stood side by side with him on major community projects, even when I worked in government in the "Old party" days. I am very happy that he is catching on with the democratic party and Working Families. I am sure that many of the reasons the democratic and working families party chose to support Dr. Cabrera will surface with enough time, maybe even on Gary's show- which is a great venue I must add.. Also, Thanks for the compliment- I can't see myself being blinded however, I am just helping a person who has helped me and MANY more people. If you knew me well enough, you would know that I never had aspirations to run for office- I am only a humble, selfless person who enjoys helping others. Having said that, 100% of my efforts in this race are to get Cabrera elected because of what he can do for the district. The "cheerleaders" on this blog feel the same as I do, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thank you Richie Rich, you confirmed my point. After you finish cheerleading,please provide insight on the tax policy that was mentioned in my last message.

    What do you think about the policy, and is it something that Dr. Cabrera would have supported? Why or Why not? Or would you prefer I ask the Working Families Party or the Bronx Democratic Party?

    I made this message short to get directly to the point. "Tax Policy"

    Josh Cabrera if you have any insight on this topic please provide.

    As I asked the question to you all, I also reached out to one of Baez's supporters to find out her stance I heard she was against the policy. As soon as one of you get Cabrera's response I will provide you with what they said was her reasoning for opposing it?

    ReplyDelete
  39. WANT TO SET THE RECORD OF DR. CABRERA'S BACKGROUND: Dr. Cabrera's grandparents were from Navarette Dominican Republic. Again we are not here to debate nationalities. Dr. Cabrera will represent every race and color of District 14. Secondly, This past year Cabrera has opened a church in Santiago for the people of the Dominican Republic. A church that will service the community with social, emotional and spiritual resources including a drug rehab program which will open in the near future. He does not misrepresent himself. These are the facts. In my opinion, this is a awesome display of concern and support for the Dominican people. His vision and compassion for people extends past local boundaries.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Can we please have the name of the Church in Santiago, DR that Dr. Cabrera opened? I do believe it is a misrepresentation because he has never openly spoken about his so called Dominican roots. Also I have seen him speak at several events and the man does not even speak English properly let alone Spanish. Any and every elected official should represent all races and ethnicities but the 14th Council District is predominantly Dominican and what a coincidence that Cabrera is Dominican all of a sudden. So in the Bronx Political Machine your race does make a difference in terms of who you get mobilized to vote for you. It shouldn't matter because we are all on the same boat at the end of the day. We should all stand united no matter what. Years of the same thing shows that this is how it works.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Vision is key to hold elected office. Why are none of Dr. Cabrera's supporters addressing his bigotry towards gays and women's rights?

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am very happy to hear that Dr. Cabrera has received the endorsements of many of our community leaders. It shows the level of trust and respect that he has been able to demonstrate. Dr. Cabrera truly has a heart for people. I admire his determination to go out and make a difference regardless of what people may say or think. Our nation was built on people making a stand with integrity!!!!!

    Dr. Cabrera has spent many years working with drug addicted youth and adults. He is committed to mentoring young adult and adults alike and will do anything in his power to strengthen families. Even before this campaign, Dr. Cabrera has been at work in and around our community. During September 11th, when everyone was running away from the twin towers, as a private citizen he made his way down to the site to help in counseling people. When the AA 587 flight to Santo Domingo crashed in Queens, he was there counseling and comforting the surviving families. After Katrina, he flew to Louisiana to assist in setting up an emergency shelter and triage… and this is just a few of the more public events, I can go on and on….

    Slander for many, comes easy. Most people can talk up a good game. Past behavior is a very strong predictor of future behavior and based on this I know that Dr. Cabrera has the compassion and experience to make a difference in our district!

    (Hey John-John Any Words For Such A Intense Blog As This??......)

    All I can say is......

    WH0A!!...What is all that in your blood???....I say you can argue motives and the nonsence that people obviously can't let go of but you can NEVER! argue or challenge RESULTS! and obviously we can see that all of the Cabrera-haters here have forgotten the very article that stands above these comments. Above these comments STANDS THE RESULTS!!! and there are plenty more where that came from. Everything rises and falls on leadership and obviously M.Baez has failed to display leadership already being in office (46% of the time) and Y.Tapia has failed by trying so many times to get into office (I lost count). Its time for a new face, a new attitude, and a REAL CHANGE!!! Cabrera is Too Positive To Be Doubtful, Too Optimistic Too Be Fearful And Too Determined Too Be DEFEATED, that's why my vote will stand with him to the end.

    ReplyDelete
  44. When all is said and done, and the dust settles, and all the innuendo's and outuendo's have been said, one candidate will still remain with his integrity still Intact. Do you know who that will be? Dr. Fernando Cabrera of course and why? He has a vision for District 14 to see it change for the better. Ask yourself this: aren't you sick and tired of seeing District 14 get second rated or 'hand me downs' or the 'left overs' in resources? and do you know why that has been happening, because those prior in office has had a personal agenda instead of an agenda regarding the people of District 14. I personally consider that to be a dis-service to the people of District 14 and they deserve better. I know that once Dr.Cabrera takes seat in office not only will the people of District 14 be Grateful but finally District 14 will have a voice to be heard. The 'nay sayer(s)' will be silenced not by a rebuttal, but by the evidence of change that will happen in District 14. For those of you that missed the whole point of what I'm trying to say let me sum it up for you: My vote is with Dr. Fernando Cabrera.

  45. Ok.. Lets stop the small talk. Everyone should be working for their respective candidates by petitioning. Lets chill with the blog bashing. Lets see who hits the street!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes should be working very hard! Let us all change this community together and united. We should stop electing the same type of politicians. I was born and raised in the 14th District and to my knowledge, other than advocacy for the Fordham Library and the Kingsbridge Armory, Dr. Cabrera has not done anything else. He owns a home in Pelham, New York(Not Parkway) which when I last checked is not in the 14th City Council District. Here we go again endorsing the same old politicians that move into the district in order to run. As for the results that speak for themselves...c'mon this new Bronx Democratic Committee?! I will leave that for another blog. Please, I just ask that you all do your research before you jump on the bandwagon! And my question regarding the "Church" in Santaigo, DR has yet to be answered...

  47. Fernando Cabrera is the man for the job.. & he is the REALEST.. he will do for US people not for himself... get it together, if Maria Baez has been councilwoman for many years.. uh. WHY HASNT ANYTHING CHANGED... STAND UP ALL... LETS GO FERNANDO CABRERA..LETS DO THIS & BE A PART OF CHANGE... Show these people how much you really care about us... Thanks to all who support my pastor, friend & future coucil man Fernando Cabrera.. He works for YOU!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. so in summary-----Cabrera supporters talk about integrity, leadership, being real etc...but in the integrity department he has blown it as he lied about where he lives, an interview he agreed to says he moved into his current home last year, but he knows, his supporters know and his neighbors know that he moved in this past May. He just changed his party lines to Democrat specifically to run in this district. Leadership of what??? What has he done? Protesting about the Fordaham Library does not cut it. Anyway he wasn't the first to voice dissent about the Library, it was Yorman who spoke first and spoke loudest. No one has heard of this guy Cabrera ever. Yudelka Tapia may have lost elections but at least she has run for office in the past...and by the way losing doesn't make a person unqualified. She has been honest about herself and her campaign thats more than Cabrera can say. And what about Mr. Cabrera's stance on gay marraige and a woman's right to choose. Why don't his supporters chime in on this? So, he has no experience, no past evidence of ever having done anything substantial in the community, and I don't want to hear about what he has done for the church, that's not the community, he is a liar about where he lives and a deceiving opportunist about his party affiliation. Can someone Tell me again why he should get my vote...loyalty is a great thing only when it's based on facts and principles that merit it. Cabrera hasn't shown these. Please dont post irrelelvant responses, it would be nice to hear rsponses to the statememts in this post
