WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
By Councilman Rev. Ruben Diaz
District 18 Bronx County, New York
You should know that rumor has it the National Puerto Rican Day Parade Board of Directors has quietly decided to dedicate next year’s parade to the Mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico, the Honorable Carmen Yulin Cruz, in order to help her aspiration of becoming the Governor of Puerto Rico.
But now, it is important for you to know the mayor and her administration are being investigated by the FBI for corruption - according to many Puerto Rican news media outlets.
Among the Puerto Rican news media outlets reporting this conduct are: El Vocero de Puerto Rico, theBlaze.com, Telemundo PR and many others.
Mayor Yulin Cruz and her administration are under fire for allegedly obstructing critical supplies from reaching victims of the Category-4 Hurricane, Maria, that leveled much of the small island of Puerto Rico less than a year ago.
You should know my dear reader that for many weeks after Hurricane Maria, Mayor Yulin Cruz made headlines for her comments about President Trump and the Governor of Puerto Rico’s administration slow response to the victims of Puerto Rico. It now appears it was not Governor Rosello and President Trump’s slow aid keeping the supplies from reaching the residents of San Juan, but hers, according to the Epoch Times report.
I don’t know how the FBI investigation will affect the future plans to dedicate next year’s National Puerto Rican Day Parade to Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz. Nor do I know if Mayor Yulin Cruz’s aspiration to run for Governor of Puerto Rico will have to be put on ice.
As I used to say to my friends Jose Rivera and Isreal Martinez, “We’ll see.”
This is Councilman Rev Ruben Diaz, Sr and this is what you should know.
