  1. This is Mark Rodriguez from The Political Parent Party and I am glad that my idea of a green manufacturing plant for The Kingsbridge Armory has finally been heard. As I stated on the record at the City Council hearing, a state of the art Bread & Cookie Plant would create REAL jobs with REAL wages and not competing with the retail sector. As an accountant, I have a network of investors eager to step in. So Ruben Diaz Jr., if you are serious about my plan, please contact me. It would be nice to work together on this for the people of The Bronx.
