I am now discovering how bad Congressman Serrano really is.

Fresh Direct is a trucking company that brings food from farms in New Jersey and Upstate New York and supplies the food to grocery stores in New York.

They want to move their hub from Long Island City Queens to the South Bronx.

This is a $100 million dollar deal.

However, Congressman Serrano has a seat on a five-member board that needs to approve the move and he has blocked and vetoed the deal.

This is the reason Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. is mad at him.

Mayor Bloomberg wanted to build a shopping mall inside the Kingsbridge Armory in the Bronx. The armory, a huge edifice, has been vacant for decades.

Congressman Serrano blocked the deal saying there was no assurance that employees of the mall would receive a "living wage".

These are just two of the many problems Congressman Serrano has created for the Bronx.
