Kristy Marmorato sworn in as new East Bronx City Council member

A  historic City Council election in the Bronx was made official this week. 

Kristy Marmorato, the Republican council member-elect for District 13 (CD-13), was sworn into her new post at City Hall on Wednesday, alongside her new colleagues on the council’s Common Sense Caucus. Marmorato replaces the current seat holder, Democrat Marjorie Velázquez, in joining the 51-member body after the New Year.  

“It was energizing to speak to colleagues on both sides of the aisle and hear their enthusiasm to start working together,” Marmorato told the Bronx Times on Thursday. “It meant everything to my team and was the result of what we worked so hard for over the past nine months.”
