Assemblywoman Naomi Rivera to Get a Primary

It appears that State Assemblywoman Naomi Rivera, daughter of former Bronx Boss Jose Rivera, will have to work over the summer now that a newcomer has decided to challenge her in a primary. The Daily News reported that real estate broker Mark Gjonaj will challenge Rivera in the primary this September.  Mr. Gjonaj grew up on Arthur Avenue and is a Commissioner on the Taxi and Limousine Commission. Stay tuned for this one.

  4. Gjonaj sounds like someone who's actually doing real things in the real world. I'd support him.

  5. Wow, if someone like her holds elective office there must be something really wrong with our priorities in this borough.

    1. No need to cast aspersions at her just to build up someone else.

  6. Mark Gjonaj only registered as a democrat last year, and he lives on City Island. His big, gaudy campaign office is an eyesore. Naomi isn't exactly spectacular, but at least she holds a residence within the 80th district and is not a conservative-republican, John McCain supporter.

  8. According to FEC Records (http://query.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/qind/), Marj Gjonaj has donated $9,600 to national republicans from 2003-2008. Including $7,100 to John McCain and $0 to Barack Obama.

    Why is a John McCain supporter running in a Democratic Primary in the Bronx?

  9. Is it true that this Assemblymen elect has placed a person who was ACCUSED of smuggling drugs from Albania into the United States. She is now the Director of the Albanian Senior program which is located in the Bronx House on Pelham Pkwy. Many of our children from the community attend activities there.... doesn't the Bronx House do a criminal background check on the people that work there...

  10. Yes, his parents were honest and hard working people, but Mark Gjonaj has helped many people especially himself....he moves in his mistress's family members into the building he lives in so when the wife is away the mistress's, while visiting their family members sneak into his apartment and service him....what a wonderful MAN he is and NO ONE is the wiser.....Smart businessman we have here, and he wants to be our leader.....

  12. I see from the last comments here what kind of campaign Naomi Rivera is planning to run.

    I was not interested until now, but these comments make me vote for Mark Gjonaj.

    I'd rather have him than someone who resorts to personal attack and family gossip. Shame on you Naomi for the kind of language you and your people are using.
