    RE: Swinton Avenue Fire

    “I am terribly saddened to learn of today’s fire on Swinton Avenue, which has devastated the Velez family. Ramon Velez and his family were trailblazers in our borough, paving the way for individuals such as myself to get involved in the political process in our borough and our city. To see his family suffering so greatly today breaks my heart.

    “I join my staff and all 1.4 million Bronx residents in offering our thoughts and prayers to the Velez family in their time of need,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
