Gustavo Rivera's Open House
May 4th, 2011

Sen. Gustavo Rivera has a busy day ahead of him. After session this morning Rivera will take part in the Democrats’ forum on ethics reform and then he will make his way back to his district for an open house for the opening of his first district office. But Rivera is ready for a party.

“In all honesty I hope we have a fire marshal sort of situation,” said Rivera who is excited at the prospect of hosting as many constituents as possible. The open house will take place at The Poe Building at 2432 Grand Concourse, Ste 506 in the Bronx from 5-8 p.m.

Former Sen. Pedro Espada, the man Rivera unseated in the Democratic Primary last year, was notorious for avoiding his constituents so Rivera prides himself on being available to them.

Rivera apologized for not having a district office earlier. “The main reason it took this long is we wanted to make it central and accessible to people.” Rivera said as soon as he saw the office he knew it was the right location. “It is in the middle of the shopping district, it is centrally located in the district, it gets a lot of foot traffic. I strolled the 20 minutes from my house to district office the other day. I plan on doing that a lot. I’m available to my constituents and I want them to know that.”
