The election of Bill de Blasio signals New York is on the precipice of electing progressive left leaadship. El pueblo, tired of Stop and Frisk laws and growing economic inequality of the "tale of two cities" is ready for change. We voted for new lideres under 30, which includes two openly gay council members and the first Mexican-American. We re-elected Puerto Rican, Dominican, and African American progressives like Melisa Mark Viverto, Ydanis Rodriguez and Inez Barron. As we embark on new electoral journey I am hopeful, but cautious. Will we see the election of the first Latina NYC Council President a diverse administration? Or will the permanent government reign?
