Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez Shred Event

Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez Shred Event

By Robert Press

It was a nice sunny Friday afternoon, a perfect beach day, as Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez hosted a shredding event with the Department of Sanitation. Two shredding trucks arrived in front of the assemblywoman’s office, and the Sanitation Department workers had several plastic bins to throw whatever paper a person wanted to shred. The bin would be set under the opening where the bin is lifted up and the paper goes into the shredder, and the empty bin is returned to be filled again. 

In talking to the DOS superintendent on hand the paper is cross cut, then bagged and stored in a warehouse for New Year’s Eve to be dropped upon Times Square when the New Year’s Ball reaches the bottom to light up the New Year. The Shredding unit works citywide and is in popular demand, because when the event was over at 1 PM, the trucks were off to another site. 

I received word that Assemblywoman Fernandez was not happy with me showing up, and I was told she ran into her office and said” What the F*** was he doing here, spying on me?” That was after I asked a former Councilman Mark Gjonaj staffer if he was looking for a job on the campaign. Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez if you want to know what this reporter was doing with a bag of papers to shred at a public shredding event I was asked to promote, you candidate Nathalia Fernandez can come on the Talking Bronx Politics show I host Live (Friday 12 PM – 1 PM on YouTube and Facebook Live), and ask me whatever question(s) you may have, but I will ask you questions that I have. My co-host and I will be talking about the 34th State Senate race going into detail about the candidates. Two candidates have already come on the show, when can I expect you candidate Nathalia Fernandez to come on the show or do you have something to hide?



A DOS worker stands next to one of the shredding trucks waiting for the bin to be filled so he can then put the bin into the shredding truck.  
The DOS worker pushes the button that lifts the bin into the shredding truck so the papers could be shredded. The machine even shows where the bin is going up into the truck.

Assemblywoman and senate candidate Fernandez is talking to a DOS supervisor, and a former staffer for Councilman Mark Gjonaj. In the background is a bin being loaded with paper to be shredded.

In this photo Assemblywoman and senate candidate Fernandez is running into her office as one of her staffers tries to talk to her. I was told she said “What the F*** is he doing here, spying on me?”

A photo from February 2018 when Nathalia Fernandez was endorsed as the Democratic candidate for the special election to replace former Assemblyman Mark Gjonaj, by former Assemblyman and Councilman Mark Gjonaj, and then Bronx Democratic Party Leader Assemblyman Marcos Crespo. Out of the photo is then Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. who was also a supporter of candidate Fernandez.
Was it a coincidence that all three supporters of candidate Fernandez would exit politics when their terms were up in 2020 Crespo, and 2021 Diaz Jr. and Gjonaj?
