District Manager Position Open Following Judges Order

Brooklyn’s Community Board 9 has announced an opening for the job of district manager – which carries up to a $90,000 a year salary – following a judges voiding of the controversial hiring of another candidate in 2016, which she deemed illegal and has been vacant since.

At the November 2017 community board meeting a committee was formed to seek applications to fill the now-vacant position of district manager. The position was last filled by Mrs. Pearl Miles, who served in that position for 30 years.

In June 2016 Carmen Martinez, a longtime area resident and board member, was hired as Mrs. Miles replacement – despite protests from critics who claimed she was hand-picked for the position by Borough Hall and has a record of using a previous city job for personal gain.

Martinez previously served as the Director of the Community Action Center for the City Comptroller’s office — until the agency discovered she had been repeatedly abusing her position to benefit her Sterling Street block association and other nonprofits, spending “excessive” amounts of taxpayer-funded time to conduct personal business for more than a decade, according to Conflict of Interest Board records, and as reported by DNAinfo.

In October of 2017 a judge voided the hiring, forcing the board to elect a committee to begin searching for a new district manager. The committee was formed in the November meeting and are now accepting resumes and applications.

The position is in now the hands of the search committee, which was appointed over a month ago,” said Musa Moore, the chairman of Community Board 9, adding that “[the committee] will be reviewing resumes that come in, and they will be interviewing with various candidates to present to the full board.”

The job is a full time position and located in the boards officers on Nostrand Avenue between Carroll and Crown Streets and carries a salary between $75,000 and $90,000. The application period is open until the position is filled.

Resumes can be delivered in person to the board offices at 890 Nostrand Avenue, or by email to unelper@aol.com.

    What an amazing opportunity! I know of a number of lubavitchers who recently graduated and it would be phenomenal to have them apply and represent and advocate on our behalf!

    I hope this opportunity doesn’t get squandered!

    As the former long time Chairman of CB 9 (34 years), I am very happy this was posted to a CH website , as the CB did not . This is an excellent job for the right candidate . Consider paid Medical insurance , Life insurance at a cheap cost , paid legal holidays and the paycheck that comes from the City and you can walk to work or drive , you cannot ask for better . Look at the job qualifications and if you think you are a candidate apply . I would be more than happy to look at your resume , help your resume ,rewrite it if needed , just contact me . Remember there is a time constraint to apply .
