Lets Give what many call "The 2010 Heroes of Reform" a helping hand
From the Candidates themselves!!!
* Rev Carmen Hernandez-Bronx Distrixt Leader Candidate-85th Assembly District
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, http://www.nypirg.org/goodgov/legislative_action_review2009/default.html)
That's why I am standing with Charlie Ramos -- and why Progressive organizations are counting on us to send him to Albany.

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;
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
