Senator Diaz: Sticking It to Transit Riders and Proud of It
Today I'm standing here proud to say to my constituents. I promise you, constituents of the 32nd senatorial district, no toll.
That would be the asthma-plagued Bronx district where 67 percent of the households don't own cars [PDF] and the transit-riding majority endures the most crowded, cramped conditions in the city. Thanks to the intransigence of Diaz and company on bridge tolls, it's going to be much tougher to improve commutes for straphangers in the 32nd.
