Community Board 2 district manager Arthur Strickler died at his home in Greenwich Village last Saturday. The cause, reported by Gay City News, was a heart attack.
Strickler was the energetic and sometimes gruff glue of C.B.2, holding chaotic discussions together in the regular monthly mêlées that came to characterize his board’s meetings. Even more, he was a knowledgable font of bureaucratic wisdom that aided his board immensely. He’ll be missed.
