Community Board 10’s leadership team was re-elected without opposition at the board’s April meeting in South Ozone Park last Thursday.
Betty Braton of Howard Beach, the board’s longtime chairwoman, was unanimously re-elected to her position by the members of the board. Sean McCabe of Ozone Park, the board’s first vice chairman, Robert Ruffin of South Ozone Park, second vice chairman, Isabel Van Putten of South Ozone Park, the treasurer, and Nellie Santiago of Howard Beach, executive secretary, were also re-elected in the unanimous votes.
The entire slate was renominated by CB 10 member Rosemary Ciulla-Frisone of Howard Beach. No one offered up any opposing nominations.
The board also welcomed two new members, Renate Teuschler of Lindenwood and Mohammad Salim of Richmond Hill, and announced the reappointment of half the board’s membership to another two-year term.
“Appointments are staggered,” Braton explained. “Half the board is appointed this year, the other half next year.”
