Mayor Splits 2 RIOC Board Appointments Between One Current Member and One Elected By Roosevelt Island Community
Dick Lutz of the Main Street WIRE reports that Mayor Bloomberg has named his two candidates to the RIOC Board of Directors.
Mayor to Appoint Polivy, Reappoint Stewart
The Main Street WIRE has learned that Mayor Michael Bloomberg will use his two appointments to the RIOC Board of Directors to appoint Howard Polivy, who was among the six winners in the community's February 5 election to nominate Board members, and to reappoint sitting Board member Patrick Stewart (who did not run in the February 5 contest). The announcement is to be made tomorrow, according to a highly placed source.
Sitting Board member Michael Shinozaki will lose his seat.
The Mayor's decision leaves two of the community's nominees, Erin Feely-Nahem and Frank Farance, without seats on the Board. Of the community's six nominees, four will have been appointed: Jonathan Kalkin, Fay Christian, and Kathie Grimm, all selected from the nominee roster by the Governor, and Polivy.
