Assemblywoman's Grandson Still on Staff
April 15th, 2010

A month after pleading guilty in federal court to embezzling more than $100,000 from a Bronx nonprofit, Richard Izquierdo Arroyo is still acting as the chief of staff to his grandmother, Assemblymember Carmen Arroyo, he confirmed this afternoon.

When asked during a phone interview whether he had considered resigning from his post in the assemblywoman’s office following his guilty plea, Izquierdo Arroyo said, “I think this conversation is over.” He then hung up the phone.

According to SeeThroughNY, Izquierdo Arroyo made $82,964 in 2009 as the assemblymember’s chief of staff. Izquierdo Arroyo is also the nephew of Councilmember Maria del Carmen Arroyo, and he was indicted in June of last year.

Izquierdo Arroyo pleaded guilty in March to embezzling $115,000 from SBCC management, a nonprofit that manages residences for low-income tenants, between May 2005 and February 2009. He was president of the organization at the time. The cash went to clothes, shoes, airfare, hotels and restaurants as well as campaign contributions to the assemblymember and a new floor for her office.

Izquierdo Arroyo, 33, is scheduled for sentencing on June 25. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, and he has agreed to pay $115,000 in restitution.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
