Images from the Board

by Yori Yanover

At last night’s CB3 full-board meeting, several celebrities were on hand to usher in the new season and to touch base with board members and constituents. Thankfully, the board has decided to change its protocol regarding presentations from the public, opting to schedule those first, rather than forcing the citizenry to stay through the lingering debates before they get a chance to speak. In fact, one presenter was there to urge the board to change the order in favor of early public presentations and when Board President David McWater told her it had already been done she changed her speech from urgings to thanks. Now, that’s fast results for you.


Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer elaborated on his office’s ongoing material support for community boards, for which he is universally praised by the latter.


Councilmember Rosie Mendez was making nice with Darren Bloch, who ran against her last year. Bloch now works for Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum.


Seward Park Housing resident Andy Berg brought his son, Spencer to voice his support for the gay marriage resolution (it was passed).


And a much relieved and visibly recovered Senator Martin Connor came by to greet the folks and to celebrate the passage of Timothy's Law, requiring insurance policies to cover mental health and chemical dependency services equally with other health care.
