A new team of officers was sworn in to head up Community Board 10, at the boards most recent meeting, after a close election a month earlier. Dean Rasinya was sworn in as chairperson by Borough President Marty Markowitz. Mary Ann Walsh was sworn in as vice chairperson, and Eleanor Petty was sworn in as the boards secretary by Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Arthur Schack. Brian Kieran, the boards new treasurer, was unable to attend the meeting, which was held in the community room at Shore Hill, 9000 Shore Road. Remarked Rasinya, speaking after he was sworn in, Over the next several months, I look forward to addressing the concerns with my fellow board members that are brought to our attention, and setting in place an agenda with the long-term goals of addressing some of the conditions which require much planning and much focus. Among the major issues facing the board, Rasinya said, are those, Relating to our youth, to our increasingly large senior population, to our health care system, and to our environmental surroundings. We can bring new ideas, new energy, enthusiastic participation and a new vision to existing problems and new ones which we shall meet, he told his listeners. In so doing, he added, they will be, Building on the accomplishments, dedication and devotion of previous boards and chairpersons. Among his intentions as chair, Rasinya added, will be to build strong alliances with the various community groups and religious institutions which are addressing the issues and concerns of our neighbors. This will help, he said, in getting the boards goals accomplished. That the board has been successful in its activism was affirmed by the borough president. I love this community board, remarked Markowitz before swearing in Rasinya. You know how to get things done. Thats for sure.
