Councilman Torres Featured In City, Local Media


Councilman Ritchie Torres, elected last fall and beginning his first full term last month, has made waves around the city, as an early supporter of East Harlem/South Bronx Councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito for Speaker of the City Council and as the body’s youngest member.  A resident of the Throggs Neck Houses as a youth and currently representing the 15th District in the Council, Torres now chairs the Council’s Public Housing Committee and is a member of the Council leadership, along with East Bronx Councilman James Vacca.

Today, the Councilman was profiled in Capital NY , and was featured in a City’s Limit’s ‘s article last week.  The Daily News featured an article on the Councilman in January that posed Torres as a king on throne.
