Flushing community board member seeks borough president’s help to stop ouster from panel


As Community Board 7 moves forward with its efforts to expel him from the board, Flushing community leader John Choe is urging Queens Borough President Donovan Richards to investigate the “misguided actions” of the board, citing issues of transparency and power accountability.

In an open letter sent to the borough president on Tuesday, July 20, Choe stated that while Richards did increase awareness and applications for membership, “very little has changed in the operation or direction of CB 7,” which represents the neighborhoods of Flushing, Beechhurst, Bay Terrace, College Point, Whitestone, Malba, Murray Hill and Willets Point.
