Incoming Congressman Adriano Espaillat Holds New York Swearing-In Ceremony at YU
On January 29, Congressman Adriano Espaillat celebrated his election with a New York City inaugural swearing-in ceremony, hosted in Yeshiva University’s Lamport Auditorium. The ceremony was conducted by the Honorable Rolando T. Acosta, associate justice of the New York Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, First Judicial Department, and attended by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Espaillat is the first Dominican-American to represent this diverse district in Congress.
“Congressman Adriano Espaillat has been a friend and supporter of Yeshiva University since his time in the state legislature,” said Phil Goldfeder, assistant vice president for government affairs at YU. “Hosting this historic inauguration at YU was gesture of our appreciation, but more importantly another example of our partnership with the community and our willingness to find ways to work together with our neighbors.”
