A District Leader serves as the voice for constituents within an assembly district and holds a leadership role in county-level politics. This volunteer position is mandated by state elections, divided by State Assembly Districts, with regulations derived from County Parties that possess ballot access.

It is an unpaid internal position within the county party structure. The term of office is 2 years, with no term limits. Each Assembly District has two positions, a Male and Female District Leader, or District Leader and an Associate District Leader. The selection depends on the number of filled seats and the county’s policy regulations. District leaders’ responsibilities are governed by the county party’s guidelines.

In New York City, four parties have ballot access: The Democratic Party, the Republican Party, the Conservative Party, and the Working Families Party. Generally, each borough has its own County Parties, each with its own guidelines determined by the Party Chairman, executive committee, and registered members.

The Bronx encompasses 11 Assembly Districts, from 77 to 87, with two positions each. This amounts to a total of 22 potential district leaders per Assembly District for each political party. These districts are further divided by Electoral Districts, which are used for different political positions and mapping purposes.

Apart from the Democratic Party, other political party positions remain largely vacant, and those that are filled have minimal visibility or activity.

District Leader positions and some roles such as County Chairman…

Today, Chairman Patrick McManus and I stand united in our unwavering belief that Norman “Sobie” McGill embodies the personification of leadership required for the New York State Assembly in the 77th District. Together, we pledge to impede any attempt to let ignorance dictate the outcome of this crucial special election.

The Bronx County Conservative Party has executed an intricate approach, employing face-to-face engagement, targeted mailing campaigns, strategic social media outreach, and meaningful interactions with the press. We have even explored into the realm of television media to amplify our message.

Make no mistake, this special election shall not succumb to ignorance. We have left no stone unturned, no effort spared. The fate of this district now lies squarely in your hands.

Reflecting on our achievements, in last year’s city council race, we shattered records with unprecedented voter turnout among registered conservative voters. In the 15th district, we achieved a remarkable 100% turnout; in the 17th district, over 52%; and in the 13th, a historic moment as we…

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…

Before the pandemic, NFTs boomed on the crypto market and have since been adopted by numerous companies to appeal to the demand. The fashion industry took advantage of this new engaging strategy and introduced it within the sector through Augmented reality clothing, Metaverse fashion shows and virtual stores. Brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Burberry were the most open to using NFTs for their customers, and it showed how versatile NFTs are. 

But influencing an entire market is a long road because handling NFTs requires hiring someone specialized in blockchain technology, network connection and cryptocurrency transactions. Of course, those who want to buy their favorite clothing under an NFT form must check where to buy Ethereum because most of these online environments are built on the Ethereum blockchain. Hence, they mainly accept Ether payments, but some have expanded to Bitcoin and even Dogecoin tokens.

Regardless, it is safe to say that NFTs bring a total change in the business setting, so we must explore it thoroughly to seek innovation. Here’s how.

NFTs in art and luxury brands

Of course, NFTs, being unique tokens and appreciated for their value due to demand and scarcity, are linked to luxury brands and artistic assets because they share similar values. That’s why NFTs are used mainly by artists and creators to make an income from their creativity and market offers. If you have not heard about it yet, know that some artistic NFTs are being sold for millions of dollars. For example, the “Everydays: The First 5,000 Days” NFT collection was sold at an auction for $69.4 million, and people are still not over the most expensive NFT.

But there is an entire…

The 17-time NBA champions are gearing up to host the Brooklyn Nets in the TD Garden on the 14th of February. The Celtics are comfortably sitting on top of the Eastern Conference in the 2023-24 NBA season. The Nets, however, are in the 11th place in the conference and need help to make it to the top ten. The following Wednesday fixture will be an exciting watch for basketball fans as two historic NBA sides collide in a much-anticipated clash.

The Boston Celtics have garnered 39 victories this season and suffered defeat 12 times. They have accumulated a Pct of .765 this season. Meanwhile, the Nets have only managed to win 20 times while suffering 30 losses. On paper, the odds are heavily stacked against the Nets; however, an upset victory from the Brooklyn Nets cannot be discarded.

The Brooklyn Nets have a home record of 12-15 and a road record of 8-15. The Celtics are currently on a two-game winning streak, while the Nets are on a 2 game losing streak.
