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 no elected official has publicly criticized and gone against Governor Andrew Cuomo more than I have.

The deaths of more than 13,000 elderly persons in nursing homes in New York State is travesty. The posture, taken by Governor Andrew Cuomo, is an ugly representation of the his leadership, tarnishing his past accomplishments.

My gripes and disagreements with the governor are due to my positions as a Conservative Democrat and Pentecostal minister. My religious conservative beliefs compel me to go against the governors stand on certain issues, that in my purview, are morally wrong and damaging.

I would like to make it clear that my position against Governor Andrew Cuomo have been solely based on my deeply rooted Christian Conservative values. Other than that, if I were a liberal socialist Democrat, I would confidently say that no one has done more to move forward the progressive socialist agenda than Gov. Cuomo. However, I acknowledge, that despite his leftists views, he has done some humanitarian and good will for those in need. For example:

  1. For Puerto Rico: During the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria. The governor went above and beyond the call of duty to help my beautiful island.
  2. For the gay & lesbian community: Have Gov. Cuomo to thank, when he fought and twisted many arms to ensure that same-sex marriage became legal in New York State. My opposition to gay marriage was the main cause of my contention with the governor.
  3. For the Bronx County: Governor Cuomo assisted the Bronx when he intervened and allocated monies to The Hunts Point Market, the Bruckner Sheridan Expressway, Orchard Beach, the building of four Metro North Train Stations, (which he jested that he would name one of them Ruben Diaz station), the allocation of much needed funds for Bronx affordable housing, and a piece of land to create The Junior camp for Bronx youths, after the senseless killing of Junior Guzman.
  4. For union workers: Gov. Cuomo was influential when he got involved in rebuilding and repair of the state’s infrastructure. The construction and repair of new and old bridges, repaving…

Mayor Bill de Blasio today celebrated the appointment of Nina Kubota as President and CEO of the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA). Kubota had previously served as SCA’s Senior Vice President for Capital Plan Development & Implementation, a position she first assumed in January 2020. She has served at SCA in various roles since 1998. Kubota replaces Lorraine Grillo, who left the post earlier this month to become the City’s Senior Advisor for Recovery. Kubota will be the first Japanese American woman to lead the agency.

“The School Construction Authority has done heroic work throughout this pandemic. Their hard work has kept New York City’s children safe and delivered the gold standard of school safety in the United States. Nina Kubota has the experience, vision, and tenacity to build on this mission – and deliver a full school return this fall that keeps every student in our city safe in the classroom,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“I have been fortunate to be part of the incredible team at the SCA and have spent years working hard to meet the Mayor’s goal of creating more than 83,000 new seats to address overcrowding in our schools and modernizing our existing school buildings. Today, I am proud to lead an agency that keeps moving forward, constantly innovating to ensure that we design and build schools that meet the current needs of our students and teachers while continuing our commitment to safety, quality and integrity,” said Nina Kubota. “Thank you to Mayor de Blasio for the opportunity to continue serving the people of New York City and providing our children with the 21st century learning environments to learn and grow.”

“Our school communities have overcome so many obstacles this year to make safe, in-person learning a reality, and we would not be where we are today without our hard-working partners at the School Construction Authority. Nina Kubota will build upon the tremendous work of Lorraine Grillo and partner with us toward a successful, full reopening…

Today, FOX Sports announces the donation of $42,000 in new baseball and softball gear and athletic apparel to youth organizations in Los Angeles and New York City in honor of Jackie Robinson Day. Recognized by Major League Baseball (MLB) since 2004, Jackie Robinson Day, April 15, commemorates the day of his MLB debut back in 1947.

The donation – a nod to Jackie’s jersey number 42 – enables kids in his hometown, Los Angeles, and city where he played professionally, New York, to follow in his footsteps by creating access to the sport in which he broke the color line in 1947. The Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills in Los Angeles, Urban Youth Initiative in the Bronx and Central Brooklyn Youth Sports in Brooklyn will use the donated gear to provide baseball and softball programs for the children they serve.

“In the spirit of Jackie Robinson Day, we are proud to be able to offer new baseball and softball programs this spring to kids from diverse backgrounds who may not otherwise have had the opportunity,” said Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills Executive Director John Wilson. “We are so grateful to FOX Sports and Good Sports for helping to make this happen for our kids.”

The donations help reduce financial barriers to play for underserved youth and include bats, helmets, fielding gloves, batting gloves, catching gear, pitch returns, cleats, jerseys and other necessary gear. The equipment and apparel also support…
