**Head of North Brooklyn Development Corporation which is overseeing the distribution of the Greenpoint Environmental Relief Fund money.

***Employee of the North Brooklyn Development Corporation. Also the owner of The Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park web site’s url. (Run a “who is” search and see for yourself!)

*****Co-chair of the Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park group.

***** Former Community Co-chair of Open Space Alliance North Brooklyn.
