WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
By Senator Rev. Rubén Díaz
District 32 Bronx County, New York
You should know that Governor Andrew Cuomo is ignoring the Hispanic Community when it comes to nominating appointees for key positions in New York State.
It is important for you to know that out of the 108 nominations Governor Andrew Cuomo has sent to the Senate for approval, only five (5!) are Hispanic.
What is even more disturbing is that out of those five, two people, Fernando Ferrer and Lorraine Cortés-Vázquez, are re-appointments. In other words, since those two have already been placed in positions for years, the Senate is being asked to approve only three new Hispanics nominees out of 108.
Ladies and gentlemen, some people might think that this could be racial and ethnic discrimination against a group that has always been very supportive of the Governor.
I am Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz, and this is what you should know.
We totally agree with State Senator Ruben Diaz Sr. on the issue, but he fails to investigate further by looking at the team Governor Cuomo has advising him. Perhaps State Senator Ruben Diaz Sr. should have a position of advisor to Governor Cuomo?
That is what you should know.
