On Friday June 5, Adolfo Carrión, former Bronx Borough President announced his endorsement of Council Member Fernando Cabrera to be the next Bronx Borough President at the steps of Bronx Borough Hall. 

In this major endorsement, Carrión, who preceded Cabrera as District 14 Council Member, cited the appropriateness of Cabrera's campaign, which priotized keep needs of the Bronxites during the post-covid era, viz-a-viz affordability, public safety and economic recovery from COVID-19.

"Fernando Cabrera is a uniter who has the compassion, the focus, and the tenacity and work ethic to make sure that the Bronx grows and prospers. Fernando has proven that he has what it takes to continue to build a Bronx that is more affordable to working families, is safer and offers everyone more economic opportunity," Carrión said.

Cabrera, who worked with Carrión when he was a Community Board 7 board member, further described Carrión as an inspirational figure in his political career.

"I admired the skill with which then-Council Member and Bronx Borough President Carrión advocated for tenants, for seniors, for NYCHA residents and for the less fortunate," Cabrera said.

Cabrera therefore concluded with a note of gratitude to Carrion for his endorsement to become the next Bronx Borough President.

"I receive his endorsement with gratitude and an acknowledgment of the growing momentum and strength of our campaign for a Bronx that is more affordable, more safe and more economically secure."
