The board approved a measure that put as the Town liaison on Port Washington’s Business Improvement District. Former will also be on the board.
As explained it, there is an additional opening on the board, and he can select who fills the spot. He is placing Pollack on the board.
DeGiorgio said that since the voters elected her and voted Pollack out of office, and because Pollack is not a business owner, his appointment would "make the board ineffectual." This scenario, she said, is "setting the board up to fail."
The appointment, she added, is "an insult to the people of Port Washington and to me."
Pointing to Pollack's presence on this board for nearly 16 years and his experience with it, he is a strong candidate, Kaiman said.
Still, Kaiman noted that Pollack's "style can be challenging" and that if this appointment doesn't work, it can be revisited in the future.
