Carrion endorses City Council candidate
(01/22/03) SOUNDVIEW - Just one day after getting endorsements by Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum, two candidates for the 18th District City Council seat got nods from the Bronx borough president.
Adolfo Carrion, Jr. stood alongside candidate Ken Padilla, who was speaking to a crowd of supporters about getting the borough president's stamp of approval.
Meanwhile, his opponent Pedro Espada, Jr. was at City Hall where the chairman of the county's Independence Party announced his support for Espada.
As the February 25 election draws near, the two candidates say they will be spending time out in the community.
