This morning, in front of the Kingsbridge Armory, Councilman Fernando Cabrera officially endorsed Gustavo Rivera, the young political aide and college professor who's running a spirited campaign against State Senator Pedro Espada, Jr.

“I believe that Gustavo, with his influence, leadership, character, and charisma, will bring about the… change we need in our neighborhood,” said Cabrera in a short speech.

“We need a senator that can partner with our office,” he added. “We need a senator who is going to work in housing and not against our tenants.”
