Reck will challenge Derr, giving C.B. 2 a chairperson race in June
Setting the stage for a contested election for Community Board 2 chairperson, David Reck on Sunday night announced to fellow board members that he planned to run for the head of the board in June, challenging the current chairperson, Maria Passannante Derr.
Thats confirmed, Reck told The Villager on Monday. Im definitely running. The board has really kind of lost its mission and is getting bogged down in a lot of kind of aggressive nonsense that just festers and boils. The board is not respected in the community anymore.
An architect, Reck is president of Friends of Hudson Square and chairperson of the C.B. 2 Zoning Committee.
Passannante, who won election last June, did not respond to requests for comment by press time.
