The husband of Michelle Caruso-Cabrera funds the anti-AOC Super PAC



The husband of Michelle Caruso-Cabrera funds the anti-AOC Super PAC

The husband of a GOP supporter from main Democratic challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who challenged had pumped money into the Super PAC which was intended to end a congressional career inciting freshmen at one time, campaign notes revealed.

Michelle Caruso-Cabrera’s husband, Republican investment banker and donor Stephen Dizard, is listed as the largest donor in the Super PAC named Fight For Our Communities, according to an initial report submitted to the Federal Election Commission.

Dizard contributed two donations totaling $ 30,000 in April – nearly three-quarters of the $ 42,500 collected.

But the group has received more donations since April, the amount of which will be reported in the next FEC filing, which is due June 20, three days before the main election for the Bronx-Queens congressional seat.

Super PACs can receive unlimited contributions from individuals, companies, trade unions or other political action committees for the purpose of advocating for or against candidates.

But the action cannot be carried out “in consultation or in collaboration with any candidate,” said FEC spokeswoman Judith Ingram.

A source close to the pro-Caruso-Cabrera / anti-AOC group – who asked for anonymity – would only say “we will be involved” when asked whether the group would finance advertisements or mailers who attacked Congress members before meeting themselves in the final ballot on Tuesday, June 23.

Wednesday marks the fifth day of nine consecutive days of preliminary voting before Primary Day, while many New Yorkers send ballots that were not present during the coronavirus pandemic. That means many people in the 14th Congress District have voted – possibly limiting the impact of the 11-hour attack on the AOC.

The source said, the AOC vote record for two years would certainly be a fair game.

Caruso-Cabrera has criticized the democratic socialist voice of Ocasio-Cortez against the COVID-19 aid package and its opposition to the canceled Amazon plan to find a new base along the Queens edge.

The two argued in two virtual debates during the coronavirus pandemic, but Caruso-Cabrera criticized the first-term congressman for refusing to participate in the third private debate sponsored by the Parkchester Times.

Ocasio-Cortez surprised politics in 2018 when he overthrew former Congressman and Democratic Party chairman Queens Joe Crowley in the party’s primary election. Since then he has become a rising star in the political wing.

Dizard and Caruso-Cabrera were married in 2014 and now live in Sunnyside, Queens, in the congressional district.

Dizard has donated more than $ 400,000 to Republicans since 1990 and $ 130,500 since 2014, according to FEC data.

She donated $ 24,000 for “Winning Women 2016” – PAC which funded Republican female candidates including: northern New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, former Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock, former New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn, and Arizona Senator Martha McSally.

He also donated $ 2,700 to Florida GOP Senator Marco Rubio’s campaign for president in 2016.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
