Another State of the Borough address and Bronx Beep Diaz and this time he spoke from the Mall at Bay Plaza.

During his sixth since becoming borough president in 2009, he said “We move forward, in the spirit of Herman Badillo and Mario Cuomo. We move forward, understanding that we can design and enact a transformative agenda for our future while also respecting the hardships and the glories of our past”

Diaz continues... “Look at where we are today. Look at the hundreds of Bronxites working here this morning. Look around you at this tremendous structure, and the new opportunities it has brought to our borough.

At the end of the day, what Diaz failed to say is why after all his years in office, The Bronx continues to be the poorest county in The State of New York.
