Councilman David Greenfield (D) 44th Council District
Once again imposes his Political Agenda on his Borough Park Constituency.

In a highly inappropriate move, Councilman David Greenfield, intrudes once again in the inside machinations of Community Board #12 by intimidating board members to vote for Ann Cali, a member of the St Athanasius community. Ann Cali was appointed by David Greenfield to appease his cronies at St Athanasius.  His St Athanasius cronies have long waged a systematized running battle with their new neighbors emigrating from Borough Park.  They have opposed the expansion and City grant to Moshe’s Discount, a popular community discount supermarket.  They succeeded in killing Rabbi Schick’s Shul project on 60th St corner 21st Avenue, and are continuously harassing their new neighbors utilizing the NYC 311 center.  These cronies have consistently voted against every Jewish development project which came before the board for approval.

The minutes of the February Nominations Committee meeting are not available, however, this writer has information that there was a quorum present, which included Ann Cali, and she had herself nominated to replace Roberta Feinstein as Secretary of the Board.

On the day of the scheduled board meeting, Tuesday, March 12, Spitzer, the councilman’s Chief of Staff, made phone calls to board members coercing them to approve the committee’s recommendations.  Many board members complained that they felt intimidated by these calls and acquiesced unwillingly, others chose to avoid the vote entirely and never showed, or showed after the vote.

    Didn’t this jerk run last year? Can’t understand why this community keeps on re-electing him again. I guess sheker and chanifa beats EMES get ready to settle down in this golus for a long time. If the current leaders will not change their ways let’s elect people who care for our community
