On June 8, 2010 Irene Estrada-Rukaj, dedicated community activist and Bronx resident, has announced her candidacy for State Assembly in the 80 th district. This is the culmination of a life-long dream to bring together her passion for community service and politics. Irene Estrada-Rukaj has worked diligently with elected officials, religious leaders, business leaders, non-profits and educational and sports organizations to coordinate events such as crime prevention conferences, toy drives and access to educational and recreational programs to benefit the residents of the Bronx."Equality in the entire district is an important issue. Equal representation for all communities to have a voice that will bring results."
Raising her children in a single parent home has inspired her to fight harder for much needed community outreach. She is concerned with issues that are undermining our family structure and are compromising our quality of life such as poverty, access to education, immigration, health care, law enforcement and emergency services. During these times of economic struggle, the District belongs in the hands of a leader that will be available to the community and work hard to fight for serious issues that affect all residents. Enough of the (missing in action) assembly: let's welcome Irene Estrada-Rukaj , the woman who will hold our 80th District together.
