I agree that Community Board # 11 should have appointments so as to reflect the East Harlem community at large. Its current composition is an injustice to say the least. I don't blame the board members as they are appointed and we should all congratulate and thank them for willingness to serve and give so freely of their time.

I do blame the powers that be, mainly Borough President Fields, for appointing a board so directly opposite of the communities composition. Since there are no accidents in politics, she can and should be held directly responsible for her actions. There are only half as many Hispanics appointed as there should be. I think it's time for Harlem to let go and let us East Harlemites run our own house.
