Gustavo Rivera Interviewed on Capital Tonight, Featured in Village Voice

Last night, state Senator-elect Gustavo Rivera was interviewed on Capital Tonight, a political show hosted by Elizabeth Benjamin. Rivera, who's been up in Albany attending orientation sessions for new legislators, talks about defeating Pedro Espada, Jr. in September's primary, and the future of the state Senate.  It's still unclear whether the Democrats or the Republicans will have the majority come the new year.

Talking of Rivera, he's featured in the Village Voice's annual Thanksgiving Honor Roll Call which recognizes those who have bought dignity and fairness to the city. Writes Tom Robbins: "Gustavo Rivera provided one of the few hopeful notes in a gloomy political season, thanks to his gutsy decision to take on a statewide embarrassment, Bronx State Senator Pedro Espada."

Thanks to the BxNN reader who sent us the first link, and Riverdale Ramblings for alerting us to the second.
