CB3’s Susan Stetzer Accused of Killing “New York’s Creativity”

Community Board 3 District Manager Susan Stetzer plays a starring role in some flyers that have popped up in the East Village.  The flyers say Stetzer is “wanted for assault on our civil liberties” and accuses her of being an “assassin of our civil liberties.” This morning Stetzer told us she doesn’t know who posted the flyers or why they might have done it but she believes they could be related to liquor license applications.  Stetzer is not a voting member of CB3 but some bar and club owners see her as an opponent of the always growing LES nightlife industry.  It’s not the first time Stetzer has come under attack.  Last year a downtown political club awarded her and State Senator Daniel Squadron with the “Lavender Padlock Award” which is meant to “expose anti-nightlife zealots who work assiduously to close our legally licensed nightlife establishments.”
