“Our city lost a great man last week when Herman Badillo passed away. A civil rights lawyer who began his career championing the rights of the disenfranchised, he was a powerhouse in New York City politics for fifty years. As the first Puerto Rican elected to Congress and Bronx Borough Presidency, and a host of other firsts, Herman Badillo broke down barriers for the Latino community.

He will be an inspiration for generations to come. I am deeply saddened by his passing.”
