Hi Queens Crapper:
"I read your article the CB From Hell. Well, you are not alone. We here in South Brooklyn CB 13 also have the CB from Hell. In fact according this flyer at least 4 CB members are bought & paid for by the elected's in a way that is stealth & most regular community board members don't realize. This is for the 2009-10 budget. The earmarks that are given to CB members by their Councilmen, Assemblymen & State Senators (and I'm sure at the direction of the Borough President). How can the CB members be impartial or evenhanded or speak out against policies or projects that affect the whole community? They would be scared stiff that they would lose their funding. This is part of the problem with getting CB 13 members on board against the "Marty Markowitz Amphitheater." Don't you see a Conflict of Interest here? Please note this money is only for the 2009-10 Budget, what about the other many years that money was given to these non-profits headed by these CB members? Please post.
Thank You" - anonymous
