Long-time community activist and Bay Terrace Community Alliance leader Warren Schreiber has landed a spot on Community Board 7’s executive committee.
Schreiber, who has long fought for co-op and condo rights in northeast Queens, was chosen as the board’s third vice chairman during CB 7’s annual election, which was held at the group's monthly meeting on Monday in Flushing.
“I was honored that the members thought this would be a good fit for me,” he said. “I was grateful for their support.”
Schreiber has served on the board for 12 years, but this is the first time he has acted as an executive committee member.
He said he hoped to use his position to assist in keeping board meetings civil.
“As a member, I think it’s very important that all people – other board members, applicants who come to us for land use variances and members of the public who speak at the meetings – be treated with respect and courtesy,” Schreiber said. “That’s what I hope to bring to the board.”
Schreiber has been a community activist in northeast Queens for more than 20 years and currently serves as the president of the Bay Terrace Community Alliance.
