‘Community Board 11 requires intervention’: Board strips Ferrara, D’Angelo of leadership titles in meeting marked by disruptions and a resignation

Bronx Community Board 11 voted to boot Chair Bernadette Ferrara and Vice Chair Al D’Angelo from their leadership positions Thursday night — in a meeting that involved arguments between board members, disruptions from the gallery, and a resignation on the spot.

A motion to let Ferrara and D’Angelo carry out their terms as chair and vice chair failed by a vote of 15-22, with three abstentions, during CB11’s full board meeting on April 25, even after the body’s investigative committee recommended the full board let them remain in their leadership positions. They also took a second vote to certify the move.
