It was not the normal Thursday evening on East 204th Street for the weekly 80th Assembly District free food and mask giveaway. This Thursday there were two Male District Leaders in the 80th A.D. Marcos Sierra is the Male District Leader in the 80th A.D., so what was the Male District Leader from the 81st A.D. doing in Norwood? I said to Eric (Dinowitz), what brings the 81st A.D. Male District Leader to the 80th A.D.? He answered that he was a candidate in the 11th City Council race, and we are in the 11th council district. If that is the case, then Eric Dinowitz would not mind if the 80th Male District Leader Marcos (Sierra) goes into Riverdale in the 81st A.D. since Marcos is also a candidate in the 11th City Council race, and Riverdale is in the 11th council district just like Norwood is.
An exquisitely dressed Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez helped set up the food giveaway, and began handing out some food before she had to leave for another event since she is one of the three announced candidates for Bronx Borough President. State Senator Jamaal Bailey arrived shortly afterwards taking control of the food giveaway. Also on hand was the Irene Estrada the Female District Leader from the 80th A.D., Sandra Pabon the State Committeewoman, and a representative from Councilman Cohen's office. In less than one hour all the food was given out, and people were posing for pictures with each other. The food that was handed out was provided by the Albanian American Open hand Association.
