Jesse Mojica appointed as new Bronx rep. on city's Panel for Educational Policy
(08/29/04) CLASONS POINT - There is a new Bronx representative on New York City's Panel for Educational Policy. Borough President Adolfo Carrion Jr. has appointed Jesse Mojica to fill the seat vacated by Natalie Gomez-Velez.
Carrion says he chose Mojica to represent the Bronx because he is a strong advocate for children and adults with special needs. Mojica is the parent of an autistic child and serves on the autism taskforce and community board nine. Mojica says he hopes to make positive changes in the education system.
Mojica will hold the Bronx representative position indefinitely as there are currently no term limits. The Panel for Educational Policy is made up of 13 members. The mayor appoints eight of them, and the borough presidents choose the other five.
