Our friend, Haile Rivera, is having a fundraiser in Northwest Bronx on Friday, April 17, 2009, for State Assemblyman Ruben Diaz, Jr., pictured right -- candidate for Bronx Borough President.
The suggested minimum contribution is $100.
Here's the text of the e-mail which accompanied the invitation:
I wanted to extend an invite to a very special event in honor and support of NYS Assemblyman Ruben Diaz, Jr., who is the Democratic Candidate for Bronx Borough President. I have known Ruben for ten years, having reached out to him for guidance. Ruben has been the same friend I met in 1999. He has not changed. He is committed to his community and to those who need our help the most. I ask you to join us as we honor Ruben's 12 years in the State Assembly and support his candidacy to continue the work of those before him: Fernando Ferrer and Adolfo Carrion, Jr.
Ruben believes that The Bronx's best days are still to come. We hope you attend!
