A former deputy mayor will now be joining the ranks of Community Board 1, along with three other new members recently appointed by Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer.
Ninfa Segarra, who served as deputy mayor under former-Mayor Rudy Giulani in the ‘90s, also served as the final president of the New York City Board of Education (from 2000 to 2002, when the board was abolished by the state and power over city schools was transferred to the mayor). A Battery Park City resident, Segarra has previously served as a public member on C.B. 1’s B.P.C. Committee, and will now become a full board member after getting the nod from Brewer.
The other appointees include Andrew Zelter, who last year became president of the Downtown Little League, Alice Blank and Francis Curtis.
C.B. 1 had previously announced, at its March 25 full board meeting, that three longtime members would be stepping down. Those outgoing members were Ruth Ohman, Paul Viggiano and Mark Costello.
