Assem. Ortiz Previews Somos Spring Conference.

Assembly Member Felix Ortiz voted for  Tier VI, so  Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Gov. Andrew Cuomo donated each $36,000 to make up for the shortage….the Mayor wrote out a personal check, while King Cuomo dipped into his campaign funds.  The Governor is receiving the Visionary Leadership award so nothing was going to stop the would be future United States think he’s going to to president politico from attending and saying a few words…..to his Puerto Rican peons.

    Assemblyman Felix Ortiz is coming under well deserved criticism for his failure to strengthen Kendra’s Law. Kendra’s Law helps keep people with serious mental illness out of jails, out of prisons, and out of hospitals. It keeps the community safer, but Ortiz is more concerned about ‘stigma’. Independent studies show people in it like it, and it is one of NYS’s only programs that isn’t biased against minorities. http://mentalillnesspolicy.org/kendras-law/research/no-racial-disparities-kendras-law.html
