At last night's meeting of Community Board 12, Chairperson Alan Dubrow read a letter of apology from the Board's District Manager, Wolf Sender, to the members of the Board. Mr. Sender apologized for "misstating the support of CB 12 when, in truth, I was speaking on behalf of individual members of the Board."

If Mr. Sender had shown up at the Board meeting (the District Manager is expected to attend), some residents and Board members would certainly have pressured him to respond to charges that he misrepresented the Board during his testimony to the city's Industrial Development Agency about an issue the Board had never discussed and had never had brought to its attention.

It's worth noting that Mr. Sender didn't speak "on behalf of individual members of the Board" who oppose his position, just those who support it.
