On Thursday, June 10, 2021, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. hosted his annual LGBT and Allies Pride Celebration.

This year’s honorees included community leaders: Kim Watson, Michael Beau Ivory, Jeannie Sol and Marie Spivey.

Jose Ramon, creator of The White Shirt Project, was posthumously honored at the event. The White Shirt Project is a series of black and white photographs that shed light on the stigma surrounding Mental Health. Jose Ramon passed away March 14, 2021 from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis at 54-years-old and left a lasting impact on the LGBT community.

“I am honored to host this annual event during Pride Month to reaffirm our solidarity with the LGBT community,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. “These honorees have not only been great advocates in addressing the needs of our LGBT community in the Bronx, but role models for all of us as well. I stand with our LGBT brothers and sisters in working towards a more inclusive future for everyone.”

The event was sponsored by Montefiore, The Riverdale Y, Good Shepherd Services, New Amsterdam Vodka, Blue York City, SAGE and New York…

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…

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the nomination of Sarah E. Feinberg as Board Chair and the appointment of Janno Lieber as the CEO of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Pat Foye, who has led the agency as President as well as Chairman and CEO for the past four years, will leave the agency July 30, 2021 and will step into a new role as Interim President and CEO of Empire State Development.

Feinberg would be the first woman to serve as MTA Board Chair and take the post after leading New York City Transit through the worst public health crisis in over a century. Lieber will serve as CEO effective July 30 after shaping the agency’s historic $51.5 billion capital plan and driving the agency’s robust construction efforts during the CoViD crisis as President of MTA Construction & Development.

The Chair and CEO will work in close collaboration and partnership to oversee the strategic direction of the agency.

“Sarah, Janno and Pat are not only fiercely dedicated public servants, but proven leaders who kept the metropolitan region’s transportation network operating efficiently through the worst public health crisis in a generation, and thanks to their tireless efforts, our essential workers were able to get to their destinations and help save lives,” Governor Cuomo said. “Moreover, they oversaw and pushed through historic change and construction progress across the MTA, giving the system the upgrades that will better serve riders for generations. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I thank all three of them for their ongoing service and have full confidence they will continue to work their hearts out in their new roles.”

Sarah Feinberg, incoming MTA Board Chair, said, “I am thrilled to be stepping into a position that allows me to continue to play a significant role in how our subway and bus systems operate, but to also have even more of an impact in shaping the future of the agency, and of transportation in this city and region. There should be no higher priority than ensuring we are…

Patrick J. O’Sullivan, Jr., a real estate attorney from Brooklyn, will run a twenty-mile tour of the five boroughs on Saturday, July 17, 2021, to raise funds for Catholic Guardian Services, a 134-year-old human services agency.

Mr. O’Sullivan, a board member at the agency, has promised to match every dollar raised up to $21,000, coining the title “20 for 21”: twenty miles to match up to twenty-one thousand in donations.

Mr. O’Sullivan will begin on Staten Island, run through Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan, and finish at the CGS Family Counseling & Wellness Center, 1990 Westchester Avenue in the Bronx, one of the Catholic Guardian Services program sites, where he will be greeted by agency employees, fellow board members, and Bronx community stakeholders.

All funds raised will benefit the agency’s Youth Employment Services (YES!) Program, a holistic job-readiness training and mentorship program for youth in foster care to end the unacceptably horrible homelessness, incarceration, substance abuse, and dependency outcomes for so many youth who age out of care.

Said O’Sullivan, “The YES! Program empowers young adults in foster care with the skills they need to enter the workforce with confidence. Running through NYC is my way of saying YES! to helping the next generation of New Yorkers.”

The YES! Program is a crucial component of the Catholic Guardian Services mission to provide help, create hope, and preserve dignity for children and families in need…
