Here’s City Councilwoman Maria Baez, an ally of Jose Rivera, describing last night’s contentious Bronx County Democratic Party meeting.
According to Baez, she is one of four people authorized to start a county committee meeting. She says that when the group alligned with her political opponents failed to open the meeting, she did.
Liz Benjamin reports that, according to Carl Heastie, Baez did not have authority to begin the meeting.
Candice Giove also has a different version of events.
