Help us support NW Bronx Liberation (and make $$$ too)

Our orginal State Senate Candidate was Desiree Pilgrim Hunter. For many reasons, it just did not work out. And as the race for State Senate became uglier and uglier as challangers; Fernando Tirado, Dan Padernacht and others attempted to galvalize the district. When the smoke cleared:

It was Gustavo Rivera Vs Pedro Espada!.

People that read this blog regularluy know that this blog was partly created-by wanting to keep ALL OF THE OUTSIDERS who want a piece of our district--out!!!!

And while some in the community even consider Gustavo a part time--insider/outsider---the same people say that it is more important to corral around Gustavo Rivera.

First Yorman Nunez, Desirees Campaign manager gets The Southern Office for Gustavo Rivera organized and now NWB Democrats is asked to help organize The Northern Office.



If anyone wants to help in the Liberation of Fordham, Kingsbridge, Bedford Park & Norwood, by helping Gustavo over Pedro Espada please LET US KNOW TODAY as there is an important training session going on Sunday and Monday. WE would love to have you work on the campaign. Please reach out to:

Gustavo Wins 64%-in Mailbox Vote

In the last 7 days, just out of curiosity, I put all of the campaign lit now to count it:

Lets see: 12 pieces:
5 from Campaign of Gustavo Rivera
3 from New Rooselvelt-for Gustavo
1 piece Dan Padernacht
1 from NYers for Perdo Espada
2 pieces-from outside union sources=for Pedro Espada

Numbers:  Gustavo 64% Pedro 24% Dan 8%.

oops....I think we predicted Dan would get 8% on Tuesday?

The Committee of 100 Democrats Endorse----Pedro Espada???.....Ricky says Yes-Bob says No????

Committee of 100 Democrats Robert Press & Ricky Martinez endorse Jose Rivera at
Committee of 100 BBQ, summer 2010


While most are attempting now in The 33rd State Senate to "galvanize the district" for Senate Candidate Gustavo Rivera, the community elements get stranger and stranger.

Below is the New York Post Story, highlighting that The Local Community Group, The Committee of 100 Democrats will NOT BACK Gustavo Rivera on Tuesday. While Vice Chair Robert Press claims he preferred Dan Padernacht over Gustavo Rivera or Perdo Espada---The Chairman of The Committee of 100 Democrats--Ricky Martinez has publicy endorsed Pedro Espada. NEITHER PREFERRED GUSTAVO!!!

The NWB Gremlins called up Ricky & Bob to confirm if Robert Press, who endorsed The Jose Rivera Ricky Martinez ticket at The Committee of 100 Democrat BBQ would endorse Pedro Espada as well.

While Ricky Martinez, currently in Puerto Rico, confirmed his allegance to Pedro Espada, Vice Chair Robert Press stated, "I am not working for anyone, Jose, Gustavo, Pedro or Ricky"

Doug Biviano-Brooklyn Assembly 52nd District

Charlie Ramos-State Senate Candidate, 32nd District
In one week, voters in the 32nd Senatorial District of Bronx County will go to the polls to elect their next State Senator. They'll face a stark choice between Rev. Ruben Diaz, Sr. - who will continue to be an obstructionist - and Charlie Ramos, who has a deep commitment to building community and developing the next generation of future leaders

Charlie is the only candidate in the race who will be a strong partner for Albany and work with his colleagues in government to improve our broken system and get our economy back on track.
His opponent is not only bad for the Bronx, but all New Yorkers. Diaz, Sr. has been a leader in the chaos and dysfunction in Albany, and his transgressions are limitless

He was the ONLY Democrat who voted against a bill which declared those living with HIV/AIDs shall not be required to pay more than 30% of their household income towards rent;

He co-sponsored a bill to eliminate seniority protection of public school teachers;

He first voted against a package of reforms to the juvenile justice system, only to switch his vote after Senator Parker sternly criticized him;

He has stood silent on tenant issues - including when a landlord in the heart of his district was arrested for failing to make court ordered repairs to his building which had well over 662 open violations;

He is the most vocal opponent to marriage equality; and

He has the 3rd lowest voting record. He passed 5 bills in 2008 and only 2 bills in 2009. (See,

That's why I am standing with Charlie Ramos -- and why Progressive organizations are counting on us to send him to Albany.

In a tight race such as this, donating $25, $50, $100, $250, $1000 or whatever you can could make the difference. Moreover, signing up to volunteer on Election Day can equally make a difference. To sign up, please email us at with time and availability. On September 14th, the polls open at 6:30 am and close at 9:00 pm.
Remember, your contribution can make a difference. Please donate today!
Also, remember to vote on Election Day, September 14! Only a handful of voters could mean the difference that brings well-needed change to the Bronx and New York!

Sebantian Ulagma-Co-Op City District Leader
The campaign gained a lot of steam and is rolling full throttle into Tuesdays primary with our community grassroots roots campaign. We have been endorsed by The Bronx Dominican Parade organization and the Grand Council of Hispanic Societies in Public Service. I attached a photo of myself as well

Here is some background info on me;

Sebastian Ulanga-Santiago

For District Leader of Coop City
Father, Husband, Activist, Leader
He is well known as PS 160 Co- President of the PTA, Community School District 11 Presidents Council President, Co-Chair of the Coalition against the MTA Cuts, Coalition to save affordable housing member , Co-Chair of the PCB-Free NYC Schools Parent Coalition, Coop City Youth and New Sales Committee member and Coop City Spanish American Club.

Given Sebastian’s compassion for the issues in Coop City, he will make an excellent representative for the people. Sebastian has lived in Coop city since the early age of 13 - nearly 20 years. He has laid a foundation for his family in Coop City and is active in this election for District Leader to ensure the quality of life for his family and yours. Not only does Sebastian live in Coop City with his wife Jenny Ulanga-Santiago of 11 years, and their four children (Jennesy, Jennise, Sebastian Jr., Jennisa), his sister lives there as well. His parents lived there for 15 years and are currently retired and living in Florida. Sebastian is an 1199 union baby and a third generation union worker.

Sebastian has college degrees which gives him direct insight into how he can help the community. In 2006 he graduated from Bronx Community College (BCC) with a two year degree and in 2007 he graduated from Lehman College with a four year degree in Political Science. Sebastian has insight into two worlds, education and community life. Bringing them together he will undoubtedly make Coop City a better place to live while providing a voice to the people. Sebastian comes from a multi-cultural background. His last name Ulanga and ancestry come from Africa and his parents were born in Puerto Rico. Sebastian married Jenny Coste-Ulanga who is Dominican. Coop City provides the perfect melting pot environment for them. Sebastian is the real deal!

Sebastian is a husband and father above all else and that speaks volumes. It is his most important goal in life to provide a secure, safe, and nurturing environment for his family and the people around them. In part the environment has a lot to do with this and Sebastian has many initiatives to clean up Coop City as well as the Bronx borough parks. He will make the parks safe for his children and yours by cleaning out the trash, broken glass, maintaining Coop City in the Mitchell-Llama program to guarantee affordable housing for working families, and providing more public safety officers. He picks the children up from school and helps them with homework everyday.

Sebastian has experience with organization and people’s rights. He has an Associate’s degree in Paralegal Studies and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. In 2002, Sebastian was instrumental in organizing the unionization of three satellite sites at Beth Abraham Health services; he was elected a 1199 union delegate after only being there for a year. In 2010 started a business Paralegal Services LS Incorporated to help the community with credit issues, mortgages and attorney referrals.

In 2008 Sebastian became directly involved when two teenagers were stabbed in the Coop City community. He was the only person who stood up and organized a candlelight vigil, calling for more Coop City police and NYPD police presence. He has been an outspoken advocate of equal education funding across the board for all of our children education. Currently his biggest task is organizing a campaign against PCBs (Polychlorinated Biphenyls). PCBs are found in any building built between 1950 and 1979.

Thank You and Best regards

The 3rd Candidate Strategy?

2008: September -Richard Soto, The 3rd Candidate in The Pedro Espada Vs Efrain Gonzalez 33rd State Senatte Race backs out and because of the last minute cancellation, it is too late to take him off the ballot. Many politicos believed Richard was working for Espada at that time.

RESULT: Espada Wins. Many political insiders believed that Richard's "vote for me the community guy" Soto's campaign generated enough speed-that is was one of the main contributors in Espada's Win-by at that time a viable 3rd Candidate

                                                           SOUND FAMILAR??????

Read The Shocking (and hopeful) cancellation of Dan (The 3rd Candidate) Padernecht decision to bow out of The Race-he says-to help get rid of Perdo Espada----while still being on the ballot for Primary Day  During this campaign, many of the same politicos have said Danny is working for Pedro to siphon off votes.

2010 Result?

Bronx debates: Gustavo snubs Morris Heights and the West Side over East Side? Why Gustavo Why?

Well, Im not sure how but what an upset!

One Night-Sept 2nd-2 Major Debate Outlets:

Winner: EAST SIDE NAACP Democratic Candidates Night

First Vice President Biarni Burke reported a tremendous success as over 200 people jammed The Church to hear their elected officials: Ironically enough, while this east side event pronounced many east Side Candidates, they also courted and won, over the overly promoted Bronx News Network, the candidates from The 33rd State Senate District: But a quick overview:

*Firstly, A New Party, "The Freedom Party" was their strongly represented by Gov Candidate Charles Barron. He joined his Attorney General Candidate Ramon Jimenez in attacking AG Candidate Broadsky and others as being "Albany insiders" that gave us the mess we are in now".

*In The State 33rd District-Mr Gustavo Rivera and Pedro Espada showed up and faced both each other and the public. Pedro starts off by mentioning his "humble beginnings" and his "long record of accomplishments" in helping people and community. Mr Rivera got up and seriously questioned his long record and said "many others were also looking and questioning" it.Mr Espada was received well.
*In The 32nd State Senate District-the crowd got woundddddd up as Charlie Ramos went off against Ruben Diaz Sr....well, almost!. By coin toss, Ruben went first and announced that The South Bronx has been reborn and if you looked at his record of accomplishments you will see that he was a leader in Bronx Reform. Ruben also stressed, as a pupil of "God" that he will be ALWAYS against same sex marriage.
Charlie Ramos then gets up-as Mr Diaz strolls quickly out-and slams him hard. "What changes in the South Bronx? Mr Ramos indicated, "If he is a leader in Bronx reform I assure you if you look at Rev Diaz accomplishments, you will find nothing". Mr Dan Padernacht, who is also a candidate in the 33rd was not at this event, as he was at the other de3bate, at Fordham Evangelist Church. Editors note: At that event, many booed wheen announced Mr Rivera was not coming. It was already expected Perdo Espada was not going to attend the west side debate).

*Also on hand and said a few words were: 80th Assembly Candidate Robert Giuffre, 78th Assembly Candidate Sergio Villiardre, 86th Assembly Candidate Nelson Castro and 76th assembly Candidate Peter Rivera.

Our job, says NAACP 1st VP Mr Burke says, was to engage the candidates to talk to their community". Well, The East Side succeeded!.

All we know is this: People have been saying that Rev Ruben Diaz Sr is The REAL Chair of Bronx County. In 2009, we were leaders in The Yudelka Tapia candicacy and we thought doing quite well.......till one day.................ALL THE ICE CREAM TRUCKS CAME OUT AND YELLED "Vote for Cabrera" ...and the rest some say is history.

Although I thought we combatted in well last year "The Batmobile Vs The Ice Cream Trucks", this year, Ruben has decided to take out the whole fleet, right next to his church........oh

Read the wonderful stories below

Part 1-He Has The trucks
part 2-Now he has The IRS Looking

thanks Bill..oops..MR X...and keep up the amazing reporting

Candidate Night in Bedford Park

Sept 1st, 2010, was The First Bedford Mosholu Community Association meeting and many of the candidates were nice enough to show up:

80th Assembly- Robert Giuffre made what he indicated was a major announcement when he said "I will put a district office in this neighborhood".He stressed his Morris Park roots and his passion for quality of life and more assistance for police. When asked a question about where was the highest crime area in his district, he said "I dont know but I presume this one". (OH OH). Many were puzzled that neither Naomi Rivera nor LDA founders Kenny Agosto or Joe McManus were not there, considering that they are all running as a slate for continued office.
You can learn more about Mr Robert Giuffre at:

33rd State Senate: Well another Pedro no show allowed for Round 2 of The Danny Boy Padernacht Vs Gustavo Rivera confrontation. Mr. Padernachht stressed his community roots and family involvement and his legal experience as pre-requirements for the position, while Mr Rivera, once again, spitted out the endorsements, one by one---Diaz Jr, Fernando Ferrer, Annabel Palma, 1199/SEIU, etc,etc, .some times making no sense. For example, mentioning The endorsement of Fernando Cabrera & Jeffrey Dinowitz when neither represent Bedford Park. Mr Rivera believes his community experience comes from his "experience working with progressive officals in City Hall, The State and on The Federal Level".

You can learn more about both of them at:

78Th Assembly-State Committee Candidate Ricky Martinez made an apperance and declared himself "the homegrown candidate" in his race and said he has "lived in the Bronx my whole life" and believes his main job as State Committeeman is to "keep you the public informed about events up in Albany and the Community".
