Statement from Borough President Diaz
RE: The Nomination of Fernando Ferrer to the board of the MTA
“I am thrilled that my predecessor, Fernando Ferrer, has been nominated by Governor Andrew Cuomo to serve as a member of the board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. We could not ask for a better choice. I consider Freddy to be both a close mentor and a dear friend, and I know that he will serve not only the Bronx but the entire city well in this endeavor.
“Governor Cuomo has made an excellent choice in Fernando Ferrer, who will undoubtedly be a strong advocate for the millions who use our public transportation system on a daily basis, just as he has been throughout his career in public service. I look forward to celebrating his confirmation to the board of the MTA in the very near future,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
Fernando Ferrer served as the 11th Bronx Borough President from 1987-2001.
