Despite Senator Ruben Diaz Sr. taking some flack for announcing his holiday party as a Christmas party with no children invited it was the biggest and most attended party of the holiday season in the Bronx. People were wall to wall, and Senator Diaz said that he will have to find a larger venue next year that will be able to host the most popular Christmas Party. Assemblyman Marcos Crespo (85 A.D.) co-hosted the event with Senator Diaz.
Other elected officials in attendance were Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., fellow State Senator Adriano Espailat, Bronx Democratic County Leader Assemblyman Carl Heastie, Assemblywoman Vanessa Gibson (77 A.D.), Assemblyman Eric Stevenson (79 A.D.), City Council members Fernando Cabrera and Jimmy Vacca, City Comptroller John Liu, Public Advocate Bill DeBlasio, Judge Fernando Tapia, and announced 78th A.D. candidate Luis Sepulveda on the left in the first photo.
The music was loud, and because of the huge crowd the lines for food were long, but everybody had a good time. Below are a few pictures of the event.
