Markowitz purges more of Brooklyn Community Board 6

Atlantic Yards Report

Brooklyn Borough President and Atlantic Yards Cheerleader in Chief Marty Markowitz still has the urge to purge members of Community Board 6, ostensibly because of members took a strongly worded position against Bruce Ratner's controversial megadevelopment.

Just as Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz was gamely recognizing former Brooklyn Community Board 6 chairman Jerry Armer, who was being honored by the Park Slope Civic Council, the BP was continuing his purge of CB 6 for its stance against Atlantic Yards.

The Courier-Life, in an article headlined "CB 6 is shaken to its core," reports that Celia Cacace, a board member since 1982, says Markowitz told her in 2006 that he wouldn't reappoint her when her term came up and treated her coldly ever since. She learned of the decision through a form letter. Like Armer, she said she would still attend CB meetings.
