The OnPointPress.net family extends Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day greetings to all of our readers and supporters.
One individual that we would like to honor in particular is Darcel Clark, who was sworn in as the new Bronx district attorney on Saturday, January 16, at Lehman College. Clark replaces Robert Johnson, now a judge, who served as the Bronx district attorney for 27 years. Johnson is also African-American.
Clark grew up in the Bronx and was judge for 16 years. She is the first black female to serve as district attorney not only in the Bronx but in the entire New York State. Her swearing-in ceremony was attended by a broad spectrum of dignitaries in New York including Mayor Bill de Blasio, NY Speaker Carl Heastie and State Senator Chuck Schumer.
Clark’s achievement is a reflection of Dr. King’s dream being realized in part, and for that OnPointPress.net is pleased. Happy MLK Day everyone and congratulations DA Clark on your well-earned new role.–OnPointPress.net–
