Recent articles have described the ill-treatment of Mary Ann Carey, District Manager for Community Board 9. She has given many years of dedicated service to the community.
Great numbers of community members have benefited from her leadership. Despite her effectiveness, she is obviously being forced out of her position.
When our community was faced with problems, be it small or huge, she was always available to hear our concerns and help us resolve issues. Her assistance has been invaluable on numerous occasions. No matter if it was a speeding problem on our residential street, or inappropriate development, or graffiti, we could count on her able assist.
No person with such a long record of community service should be treated in such an insulting manner. I hope that she will be spared the political hatchet.
