A concerned neighbor sent us the e-mail below. See our blog post "A Problem for Community Board 12" for more information about what's been going on.

And please attend Community Board 12's meeting tomorrow night from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Amico Senior Center, 5910 13th Avenue, between 59th and 60th streets. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor. If you use public transportation, take the B16 bus to 56th Street.
Tomorrow night's Community Board 12 meeting may be one of the most important meetings you ever attend.  Finally, the corruption of CB 12 is getting attention.  

The Daily News published an article today ("Board member's in hot soup: CB 12 angry over supermarket tax-break lie") describing the current situation regarding almost $2,000,000 in tax dollars being used to expand a supermarket. The article, quoted in The Yeshiva World News, ("Community Board Angry Over Supermarket Tax-Break Lie") speaks about our CB's District Manager lying to city officials. The Daily News article appears in the Brooklyn Section, page 25, February 21, 2011, and was written by Erin Durkin.
The supermarket (Moishe's Supermarket) has been distributing a 4-page flier asking for their customers' support at tomorrow night's CB meeting.

Let's remember that some will try to divert the attention away from the corruption and make it about other issues. The real issue is corruption, and we all should stick to this topic. They will try to hit a nerve and try and cause controversy, so please remember that we will not stoop to their level.

I am urging you to come and support us and be a part of making major changes in our community that will affect us all. Bring your neighbors and friends.
