Bronx NY — Dozens of Local Clergy members came out strong to support one of their own, Rev. Edward Mulraine, Pastor of Unity Baptist Tabernacle (101 So. 2nd Avenue, Mt. Vernon) who announced his candidacy for New York State Senate, Thursday morning. A few dozen black preachers filled the Pelham Bay Diner to show their support verbally and financially at the late morning fundraising breakfast.
Since the Senatorial candidate who is hoping to unseat, Senator Ruth Hassell-Thompson, has yet to have an official press conference to formally announce he is running, he made sure, there was no question of his intention with the room of clergy. “I am running for the New York State Senate, not just thinking about running I am definitely running,” Rev. Mulraine states.
After the breakfast Mulraine made a brief pit stop of the Interfaith Bronx Clergy Luncheon in Co-Op City, where he gave the closing prayer.
