Earlier this year, Manhattan BP Scott Stringer announced a plan to infuse the stodgy community boards with new members in their 20’s and 30’s, and today he announced that half of the 82 new members of the community board fit that demographic.
“Increasing youth membership was a recruitment priority this year for my office, and I’m proud to announce that half of this year’s appointees are in their twenties and thirties,” Mr. Stringer said. “I believe these members will bring a fresh perspective on so many of the local issues that Community Boards consider and create wonderful synergy with many of our long-serving members. I’m happy to welcome all of our new and re-appointed members to service today.”
Among the new faces are, Wilson Tang, a 33 year and the owner of Nom Wah Tea Parlor in Chinatown; Tina DeFeliciantoni, 50, and a producer, director and writer; and Alendi Vidal, 23, and an intern at the Young Women’s Leadership School.
