On the morning of April 12, 2024, at City Hall, we spoke with Sheena Wright, First Deputy Mayor; Jose Bayona, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Ethnic and Community Media; and Abby Jo Sigal, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Talent and Workforce Development, regarding the Mayor’s Office Hiring Hall initiative.

Last year, the New York City (NYC) Mayor’s office and other agencies launched the Hiring Halls initiative, aimed at boosting employment opportunities in areas with high unemployment rates. These events are designed as comprehensive employment gatherings, providing job seekers with the chance to connect with municipal agencies, interview with employers, and even secure same-day job offers—all within their own neighborhoods.

Following the success and lessons learned from last year’s pilot program, NYC is now revamping its strategy and plans to hold Hiring Halls every month across the boroughs over the next few months. These events will serve as vital hubs for job seekers to engage with a variety of employers and training providers, including organizations like the City University of New York (CUNY) and their English language programs.

With NYC experiencing the highest private sector employment in its history, boasting a job market of 4.7 million, the initiative aims to refocus efforts on high-unemployment areas such as Harlem,…

Street Renaming Petition To Honor Mario D’Agostino
The Bronx Daily | Bronx.com

Mario D’Agostino, who passed away June 14, 2020, was a true leader in his community in the Bronx and left his mark on the neighborhood and everyone, who had the pleasure of knowing him. 

Mario was an honorable man, who changed people’s lives with his beautiful mind, strong work ethic, positive outlook on life and investing in his favorite part of New York City, the Bronx.

Editorial

You should know that in one of his first public appearances, after having resigned as Governor for New York State, Andrew Cuomo will be visiting the South Bronx. His visit to the Bronx is to meet with Members of “The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, which I preside over.

As you know, last summer Governor Cuomo resigned, when he was accused and practically abandoned by all his friends, politicians, and community groups, whom he had helped in the past. These so-called friends, and groups that were all too happy to kiss his ring, joined the “cancel culture” environment, that plaques us all, without due process, they washed their hands with a dismissive attitude, sending the message “Crucify him, crucify him”.

Several courts and judges have dismissed the allegations of “sexual harassment” against Governor Cuomo. With this episode behind him, Governor Cuomo has begun to visit and make public appearances by visiting different faith-based organizations and community groups.

It is very important for you to know that Governor Cuomo’s first public visit was to “God’s Battalion of Prayer Temple” in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Sunday March 06, 2022. His next planned visit is to the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” in the South Bronx.

You should also know that in a recent poll, Governor Cuomo, without being a candidate nor having announced his political aspirations, has polled with just four (4) points behind Governor Kathy Hochul.

As you know, Governor Hochul was a friend and she was handpicked by Cuomo to be his Lieutenant Governor. However, she was among one of the first to throw him under the bus, in the midst of the allegations, launched against him.

I imagine that those four (4) points will evaporate very soon and Governor Hochul will have to consider asking Governor Cuomo for his support, if she wishes to be officially elected by the people to the governorship.

As President of the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, I am looking forward to hosting Governor Cuomo on Thursday, March 17, 2022. We welcome him to the South…

Recognizing that effective support cannot solely originate from City Hall, the initiative will implement on-the-ground efforts, leveraging local assets and overcoming access barriers…
