After months of abuse from not only Alicia Boyd and MTOPP but members of the Board itself (I prefer to call my own complaints "constructive criticism") the first new chairperson of Community Board 9 in decades has formally submitted his resignation. He will also leave the Board effective immediately.
Here's a picture of now former chair Dwayne Nicholson with the man he replaced, Rabbi Jacob Goldstein from happier times. Wait, in all honesty, there really never were any happy times. Not this year anyway.
It's all fine, can't get worse. Laura's already on it, she's smart, she'll take care of the business of the board. She's got help from a small gaggle of us who've been involved for awhile. Look for a new chair come June; my money's on Demetrius Lawrence, the strong but silent type. At least he probably won't scream at us, and that would be an improvement.
