Concert Celebrating the Nomination of Sonia Sotomayor

Bronx assemblyman Jose Rivera is hosting a concert featuring salsa legends Richie Ray and Bobby Cruz and the dynamic Choco Orta. The concert will take place on Saturday June 6 at 7 p.m. at the Main Theater of Hostos Community College in honor of the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

Since Sotomayor's nomination to the Supreme Court on May 26, the Puerto Rican and Bronx communities have been supportive of the success of one of their own. Bronx BP Ruben Diaz, Jr. immediately voiced his support for Sotomayor at a recent press conference. At this conference, he encouraged the Senate to confirm Sotomayor quickly and to ignore the unfounded Republican insults to her character. If elected Sotomayor, who grew up in a Bronx housing project, would be the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice along with the first Bronx-born Justice. Furthermore, Sotomayor would be the third female Justice.

At the concert, Rivera wishes to celebrate Sotomayor's Puerto Rican heritage and the Bronx along with her success.
