From the Daily News:
CITY COUNCILMAN Dan Halloran has no patience for community board members who don't show up to meetings.
In fact, the freshman councilman said he thinks board members with poor attendance should not be reappointed.
Halloran's stance has raised eyebrows as dozens of members submit their applications for reappointment next week.
"If you are not at these meetings, you are not representing the community," said Halloran, whose northeast Queens district includes Community Boards 7 and 11.
"This is not a consolation prize for being active in the neighborhood."
"People who have volunteered their time for 30 years are now being told to submit a letter and a résumé to [Halloran] and get interviewed," said a community board member who didn't want to be identified.
"It's rubbing some people the wrong way," said another source.
Attendance figures provided to Halloran by Community Board 7 show roughly 30% of the members were absent half of the time. He is still waiting for numbers from Community Board 11.
