Fernando Cabrera to Endorse Gustavo Rivera

Print More

There will be press conference at 10 a.m. in front of the Kingsbridge Armory to announce Councilman Fernando Cabrera's endorsement of Gustavo Rivera as he seeks to unseat Pedro Espada Jr. in the 33rd Senate District.

Rivera's received a slew of endorsements over the past several weeks, including unions and city and state elected officials (yesterday, former Boro Prez and mayoral candidate Freddy Ferrer joined the Rivera camp).

Cabrera, who's 14th Council District lies entirely within the 33rd Senate District, could bring a good deal of manpower to Rivera's bid if he taps into his politically savvy congregation at New Life International Outreach Church, the church Cabrera founded in the northwest Bronx two decades ago and helped him unseat Maria Baez last fall.

We'll have more on this later. Stay tuned.
