Community Board 11’s District Manager Susan Seinfeld is retiring at the end of June, Chairwoman Christine Haider announced at the Monday meeting.
Haider broke the news suddenly and reactions reverberated throughout the auditorium at M.S. 158 in Bayside, with several people exclaiming “No!” in near unison.
An ad hoc search committee will be assembled by Haider to find a replacement for Seinfeld, who has served the community board for well over a decade.
Seinfeld was a spokeswoman for former Councilman Sheldon Leffler (D-Hollis) before becoming the district manager for CB 11. She now has grandchildren and said she would like to spend more time with them.
Her son currently lives in Florida, while her daughter lives in the Chicago area.
Seinfeld expressed the desire to “relax and enjoy.”
