Bronx BP Special Election Date
March 2nd, 2009

Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced today that a special election to fill the vacancy of Bronx Borough President will be held on April 21.

Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrin Jr. resigned, as we reported, yesterday. The race will determine who will serve out the remainder of Carrin’s term, which ends in December. The candidate will have to run again for a full term in November.

Today is Carrin’s first day as director of the White House Office on Urban Policy.

Already, the newly-minted Bronx political leadership is pushing for Assemblyman Ruben Diaz Jr. Councilmember Joel Rivera was expected to announce his candidacy formally today, though the snow may hold that up.

Other candidates exploring the race are council members Jimmy Vacca, Larry Seabrook and Maria del Carmen Arroyo.

Like all other special elections, this April’s BP race will be nonpartisan.
