No Bronx Voice This Week
With the celebration of the New Year extended weekend, and the celebration of the success of the Bronx Voice in 2016, there will be no Bronx Voice printed this week as we continue to celebrate.
The Bronx Voice will be back next week for your reading enjoyment, and this column 100 PERCENT will continue its coverage of Bronx politics. In 2017 there are many races from Mayor of New York City down to the local Bronx City Council districts. There are two term limited seats the 13th and 18th City Council districts, and they will be covered in depth im this column in the Bronx Voice. There is also expected to be races in the Democratic Primary for other Bronx City Council districts, and you will be informed of the candidates who are running. I don't see much change however as there are strong incumbents running for their last term in the City Council, but I always say 'You never know what may happen next in politics'.
There will also be a look ahead during 2017 to 2018 and the state and congressional races. In 2018 the offices of NY State Governor, NY State Attorney General, and NY State Comptroller are on the ballot with the State Senate and Assembly races. Will the effect of President Donald Trump be a factor in the election of some congressional races or others? That can wait as it is 2017 and we will have to see 'Who will be the next person on the U.S. Attorney's list to be indicted'.
See you next week in the Bronx Voice, and may 2017 be a better year than 2016.
