Rivera blasts Lantigua in a debate the mayor skips


On Election Day, which is Tuesday, Rivera said he will have a team of 30 lawyers and other volunteers watching the polls to guard against the kind of irregularities that state observers reported during the Sept. 17 preliminary election, when Rivera finished second to Lantigua. He said the observers will phone in any irregularities to the Secretary of State, bypassing City Clerk William Maloney, who Rivera said is “not strong enough to say no to the mayor.”

Maloney did not return a phone call.

“We're going to be all over (Lantigua) all day to ensure that the things he thinks he has free will to do, he just can't do anymore,” Rivera said, referring to what he said is Lantigua's undue influence at city polling places. “He preys on people who are afraid of him. We're not afraid of him.”
