Bill Thompson Returns to the Bronx

  Earlier today Mayoral candidate Bill Thompson came to the Pelham Diner in the Eastchester section of the Bronx to have lunch with Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., Bronx Democratic County Leader Assemblyman Carl Heastie, Assembly members Mark Gjonaj (80th A.D.) Marcos Crespo (85th A.D.) and several other community leaders. As you will see in the photos below Mayoral candidate Bill Thompson received a warm welcome from the patrons in the diner when he and Borough President Diaz introduced themselves. In the 2009 Democratic primary Thompson sweep the Bronx with roughly 75 percent of the vote cast. In the 2009 general election Thompson carried almost 60 percent of the Bronx Vote.

  1. Man those photos are great. I guess diaz must be scared of his borough president challenger if he was out there campaigning huh?

    1. If you can read, it says Bill Thompson Returns to the Bronx.
      It appears that the advice BP Diaz is giving has worked as many now see Mayoral candidate Bill Thompson the next mayor as Thompson is climbing in the polls.
