Borough President Asks CB3 to Reconsider Block Association Policy | The Lo-Down : News from the Lower East Side
Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer has weighed in on the dispute between Community Board 3 and the LES Dwellers neighborhood organization. CB3 Chairperson Gigi Li made the decision earlier this month to suspend the group, saying that it had been acting as a "shadow community board," in her view, failing to work collaboratively with CB3's office in the liquor license approval process. While Li said the city's law department found the community board had "done nothing legally out of bounds" (Li's words), Stringer takes issue with the board's handling of the situation.
