Eric Cantor is a Republican Congressman from the state of Virgina.
Assemblyman Luis Sepúlveda (D – Bronx, NY) responded to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's (R – Richmond, VA) visit this morning to the Bronx Charter School for Excellence. Assemblyman Sepúlveda dismissed Mr. Cantor's visit as nothing more than a political maneuver of someone with hopes of seeking higher office.
"I have seen the work done by the Bronx Charter School for Excellence and must agree with Congressman Cantor that it does great work,” said Assemblyman Sepúlveda. “However that is where our agreement stops. The views of Mr. Cantor are largely detrimental to residents of the 87th Assembly District and to the Bronx as a whole.”
"It is disingenuous for Mr. Cantor to literally come into my backyard and act like he cares about the residents who live here. His visit to the 87th Assembly District is nothing more than a political move."
The Bronx Charter School for Excellence is located at 1960 Benedict Ave, Bronx NY, directly behind Assemblyman Sepúlveda's district office. Assemblyman Sepúlveda has demonstrated his support in the past for both charter and public schools and believes that both play important roles in the educating of our children.
