THE BRONX - A broad policy blueprint for the next New York mayor and City Council has been released showing the needs of the large Latino community that resides in the Bronx.

The Hispanic Federation, along with Bronx and other New York City Latino organizations, are asking the next mayor and City Council members to make Latinos a priority.

Bronx residents and advocates stood on the steps of City Hall, carrying signs and banners, to unveil their policy blueprint.

Hispanic Federation President Jose Calderon says the reforms are not only designed to help the Latino community, but the city as a whole.

With less than seven weeks until the next mayor is decided, Bronx residents say they will be watching each one of the candidates to determine who speaks to their issues.
