June's edition of the Tremont Tribune is on the streets and online now. Here are some of the stories featured in this month's issue:

- County Democrats are backing district leader Eric Stevenson to fill the seat now occupied by Michael Benjamin, who announced last month that he wouldn't seek re-election (he also recently ditched plans to make a run for Congress).
- A group of home care workers--whose company runs eight locations in the Bronx--are attempting to unionize, despite resistance from their employer.
- Belmont resident Marie Riolo was honored by Bronx politicians this month for her decades of volunteer work and community service.
- We interviewed Julio Velez, Captain of the 48th Precinct's Auxiliary Police, a volunteer patrol unit of the NYPD.
