Espada's Petition Challenge Fails
August 12th, 2010

The court appointed referee overseeing Sen. Pedro Espada’s challenge to his opponent Gustavo Rivera’s petitions has declared that Rivera has more than enough valid signatures to be on the ballot.

Rivera issued this statement: “Instead of fighting for our community, Pedro Espada tried to intimidate his own constituents and take away our right to vote for change. But the Bronx is still a democracy and our community will have a chance to elect new leadership on September 14th. I’ve spent my career fighting for change on behalf of my community and our campaign will continue to fight for that change so that on election day the residents of this great district will have a true public servant as their State Senator.”
