POLITICAL ARENA: Gustavo slims down
State Sen. Gustavo Rivera lost six pounds since he began the Bronx Change Attitudes Now (CAN) Health Initiative in June. At an event on Saturday at the Kingsbridge Heights Community Center, the freshman senator jumped on the scale and talked about eating healthy.
“I live in the same community and walk by the same fried chicken spots and pizza parlors, but I have made a commitment to lead a healthier life and to help educate my neighbors about the importance of developing healthy habits that will last a lifetime,” he said in a press release.
His goal is to lose 20 pounds by Friday, Oct. 24.
