Tonight is the Vote for Gigi Li’s Replacement as CB3 Chair
Community Board 3 nominations have been in since late last month. The fifty members of the advisory body will pick their next leader – the Chairperson seat – at the full board meeting tonight. (The public has no say in the matter.)
For the last several years, its been Gigi Li atop the heap. Stepping into one quagmire after another. Now, due to CB3 term limits (four single-year terms), she’s forced to bow out. Good riddance! Li is now laughably banking on a run for the State Assembly seat (65th District) vacated by the disgraced crook, Sheldon Silver.
Until a few weeks ago, there were three members vying for that position: Jamie Rogers (Pushcart Coffee), currently serving as assistant secretary, Enrique Cruz, founder of ALBOR (The Association of Latino Business Owners and Residents), and former board chair Anne Johnson, one of the longest serving members of CB3. Johnson has since dropped out.
Before her exit, Li had also appointed Trever Holland (Two Bridges neighborhood activist) and David Ford to chair the Parks and Economic Development subcommittees respectively.
