On Wednesday, August 05, 2020, at approximately 0014 hours, police responded to a 911 call of a multiple motor vehicle collision on the eastbound lanes of the Cross Bronx Expressway in the vicinity of Southern Boulevard, within the confines of the 48th Precinct in the Bronx.

Upon arrival, officers discovered an 27-year-old female, unconscious and unresponsive, lying in the roadway with severe body trauma.

EMS responded to the location and pronounced the female deceased.

Further investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad determined the female was standing on the shoulder of the expressway next to her 2002 Honda Civic and became pinned between her auto and the overpass wall after being struck by a 2005 Freightliner Tractor Trailer. The tractor trailer, operated by a 55-year-old male was traveling in the right lane, eastbound on the Cross Bronx Expressway when he attempted to swerve to the left to avoid slow moving traffic striking a 2010 Toyota Corolla, operated by a 51-year-old male, a 2016 Toyota Camry LE, operated by a 29-year-old female and a 2018 Lexus ES350, operated by a 58-year-old female.

The tractor trailer then continued striking the concrete wall that separates the east and westbound lanes of the Cross Bronx Expressway causing it to swerve back to the right striking the 2002 Honda Civic, which struck the victim.

Both operators from the 2016 Toyota Camry LE and the 2018 Lexus ES350 were removed in…

New York City, New York state and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority all need additional federal aid to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their budgets and a failure to aid one could adversely affect the others, according to a review of the city’s financial plan released today by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.

“The social, economic and budgetary impacts of the pandemic have been unprecedented on New York City, the state and the nation,” DiNapoli said. “Without additional federal budget relief, the City will need to make hard choices to ensure budget balance in the current fiscal year and to close next year’s budget gap.”

More than 944,000 jobs were lost in March and April, the largest job loss since the Great Depression. The unemployment rate, which had fallen to a record low of 3.4 percent in February 2020, shot up to 20.4 percent in June, the highest level in 44 years. The loss represented one-fifth of the jobs in the city and erased nearly all of the gains over the past ten years.

In June, the city projected…

Editorial

You should know that “Everything Has Its End” is a (Salsa) tune, made famous and sung by the late, great, Puerto Rican salsa singer Héctor Juan Pérez Martínez, better known as Héctor Lavoe. This song hints at the fact that all things, good or bad, do not last forever. Everything has its end!

My beloved reader, I have taken this famous tune, not only because its fantastic lyrics, but because it is true to life, that everything has its finality.  So, I chose its theme to inform you of my official decision.  

After an in-depth analysis of my life as a public servant for many years, I perused through those years and my trajectory of accomplishments on behalf of serving my community and they are as follows:

1. When the Bronx was burning and everything was in ruins, abandoned, when hopelessness seemed to be the norm, and the Bronx was compared to post WW2 Germany, I remained and decided to make a difference. Here is a list of some of those projects that helped in the revitalization of the Bronx.

a) The Rev. Ruben Diaz Plaza Housing Complex located at the corner of 163rd Street and James Polite.

b) Rev. Ruben Diaz Apartments located on Westchester Avenue, between Intervale Ave. and Kelly street.

c) The first transportation program for the frail elderly and people with disabilities: The South Bronx Senior Transportation Network, located at 910 E. 172nd Street.

d) Three (3) Centers serving various vital programs for the elderly: Casa Boricua, located at 172nd Street, corner of Southern Boulevard, The Millbrook and Betances Senior Citizen Centers, both located on St. Ann’s Avenue.

e) The creation of the Home Attendant program, The Christian Community In Action, Inc. This program provided 1,300 jobs. It employed a large immigrant population from the Dominican and Honduran communities. This was at a time, when they were not well received in New York.  This program served more than 1,400 disabled and frail elderly people. This program also employed 28 people in administrative positions.

f) The Christian Community Ambulette Transportation Program. Located at 910 E. 172nd Street, Bronx. This program served the sick and disabled transporting them to…

The loss represented one-fifth of the jobs in the city and erased nearly all of the gains over the past ten years.

In June, the city projected a two-year revenue loss of $9.6 billion from the COVID-19 pandemic. To offset the loss and to address its other needs, the city freed up $11.4 billion in resources. Nearly $4.1 billion came from reserves, including $2.6 billion from the Retiree Health Benefits Trust. The city also reduced the general reserve for FY 2021 from $1 billion to $100 million, the statutory minimum for the start of the fiscal year.

Despite a balanced budget in the current fiscal year, the city projects a budget gap of $4.2 billion for FY 2022 because it relied heavily on nonrecurring actions to balance this year’s budget. In addition, the city’s four-year financial plan includes sizable risks. The Office of the State Comptroller has quantified risks of $1.8 billion in the current fiscal year and more than $2.3 billion in subsequent…
