Senator Ruben Diaz Sr.Basks in the Joy of the Recent Election

  State Senator Ruben Diax Sr. points to 'The Diaz Team' composed of the senator, his son Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., Assemblyman Marcos Crespo, and Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda. Together Team Diaz has come a long way in political system gaining not only influence, but helping to improve the Bronx everyday. 

  The start of the long road was several years ago when then Assemblyman Ruben Diaz Jr. (elected in 1997) and his father Senator Ruben Diaz Sr. (elected to the city council in 2002, and then to the State Senate in the 2003) worked with elected officials from different parts of the Bronx to begin the Rainbow Rebellion. In the 2008 Democratic primary they got a judge elected over the then Bronx Democratic County Leader Jose Rivera's choice for the position. At the 2008 Bronx Democratic County Committee meeting Rivera was overthrown as county leader. Assemblyman Ruben Diaz Jr. became Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. in early 2009. State Committeeman Marcos Crespo was elected to Diaz Jr.'s assembly seat, and Luis Sepulveda was elected to the assembly in 2012. The rest is history for 'The Diaz Team' as they continue to grow adding new people to the team's political foundation.

  It looks like Senator Diaz Sr. could be a key player in the 2014 State Senate. With the outright victory of the Republican Party having a one vote majority, and Brooklyn Democratic State Senator Simca Felder sitting in the Republican Conference the IDC may no longer be needed by the Republican majority. Then there is also the fact that the conservative Republican majority is more in line with the goals of Senator Diaz Sr., so I look for Senator Diaz Sr. to be a key player in the upcoming two years of the next state senate.
