Last week after picking up support from a major West Bronx Democratic Club (The Northwest Bronx Democrats) Gene De Francis has kicked his campaign into high gear criss-crossing the 80th Assembly District, while his opponent concentrates on her campaign for Bronx Borough President next year.
Assembly candidate Gene De Francis is visiting every part of the 80th Assembly District which is split by the Bronx River Parkway. He is visiting schools, housing developments, parks, stores, and almost everywhere a candidate can garner votes from.
We caught up with assembly candidate Gene De Francis last week at Loreto Park, and Wednesday this week at the Pelham Parkway Houses. Residents were well receptive to candidate Gene De Francis talking about the many problems of the Pelham Parkway housing complex. Be it leaks, cracked floors, no heat in the winter, no hot water, vermin infestations, odors in various parts of buildings or just plain the lack of maintenance. Tenant after tenant had a story to tell candidate Gene De Francis.
