National Night out events were held tonight throughout the Bronx . In Parkchester Mayoral candidate Bill De Blasio showed up to help bring the Parkchester community together. This was his third visit to Parkchester, and Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda has put his neck out to be the only South Bronx state legislator to support De Blasio.
In the 50th Precinct State Senate Co-Leader Jeff Klein was in attendance in what several people told me was a smaller scaled down version of last years event. Only one inflatable ride for the kids this tear as opposed to two last year, and less tables of information were on hand.
In the 52 Precinct event held in Oval Park this year the attractions included a pony ride for the kids. More people were in attendance this year also. State Senator Ruth Hassel-Thompson, Assemblyman Mark Gjonaj, 11th City Council candidates Andrew Cohen and Cliff Stanton, as well as mayoral candidate and former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion were on hand.

Right - Is the NWB head employed by city council candidate Cliff Stanton trying to get an endorsement out of mayoral candidate Carrion, or is he looking for a new job?
