  1. While it’s great to know what these folks do for a living, do any of them actually LIVE in CB3? How about giving us information that really matters. It would be sad to live in a CB that is run by people who don’t.

  2. The list has not been officially released by the Borough President’s office. Typically, no information is made available about appointees, but I’m sure we’ll be finding out more about the new board members soon.

  3. enrique cruz is the man. can’t wait for you to beat gigi and be the chair and beat her again be councilman cruz. sleeping giant is awake. LMAO susuan and Gigi

  4. Lisa will be difficult if you disagree with her. It would be nice if people on the board didn’t have a bias going into every meeting and could be open minded.

    I would like to congratulate Enrique Cruz, Christopher Santana, Karlin Chan, Zulma Zayas and Lisa Burriss (former GOLES & PHROLES organizer, Cafe Khufu owner and an original LES resident) whom is my all time favorite. I pleased to know Lisa Burriss is on board.
