NY Times: "Power to the People"

Sunday's New York Times, February 24, 2008, includes a short article regarding the recent RIOC Board Nominee elections we had here on Roosevelt Island back on Super Tuesday.

The article focuses on the basics and starts off with an interview with resident Paul Sokoloff.

Nothing truly new but for the comments from Governor Spitzer's office which themselves are not truly new but confirm again that the Governor's staff is aware of the election:

"Erin Duggan, a spokeswoman for the governor, said that Mr. Spitzer’s office would “give consideration to all the potential appointments in the way that we consider any recommendations from local leaders and community organizations.” "

This week's WIRE had a more indepth article regarding the beginnings of the vetting process the elected board nominees are undergoing.

  1. That WIRE article makes me want to write KATZ and the WIRE and tell them to just stop delivering the paper to anyone who doesn't live in those four buildings. Obviously, they think they have some permanent right to this island that no one else should have.

    His comments regarding the tragedy of development are abhorrent to me. I am so tired of their resentment of development and the people in The Octagon.
