I am a New York City resident who lives, works, owns a business, attends school or have some other significant interest in the district of the Community Board to which I am applying. I have accurately indicated my age in this application OR I am over the age of 18. If appointed, I understand it is my responsibility to promptly notify the Office of the Manhattan Borough President (MBPO) of any changes in my residence, employment, school enrollment, or any other factor that would affect my eligibility for Community Board membership as outlined in New York Charter section 2800. I UNDERSTAND THAT FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN MY REMOVAL FROM THE BOARD.
I am not employed by the State or City of New York in a position at or above the level of Assistant Commissioner (or equivalent title). If employed in such a capacity, I have secured a mayoral waiver allowing me to serve on a Community Board and will provide a copy to the MBPO. If I am employed by the City of New York in any capacity, I have clearly indicated this in the Employment section of this application.
I am fully aware that Community Board membership requires my regular in-person attendance and participation at Board meetings, meetings of committees to which I will be assigned, and public hearings that may be convened. I am both willing and able to make this commitment of time and effort to serve my community. Excessive absences and/or persistent non-participation in full board, committee meetings and tasks WILL CONSTITUTE CAUSE FOR MY REMOVAL FROM THE BOARD.
I am also fully aware that Community Board membership requires that I participate in mandatory trainings on Conflicts of Interest, Equal Employment Opportunity, and Combatting Implicit Bias, which can be offered through the Manhattan Borough President's Office or organized through my individual Community Board. I will attend any other additional trainings that may be required by the MBPO. and I UNDERSTAND THAT FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN MY REMOVAL FROM THE BOARD
I agree to abide by all New York City Conflict of Interest laws. In all my Community Board activities, I will seek to adhere to the principals of good government, honesty, accountability, and the avoidance of conflicts of interest, both perceived and actual.
I hereby affirm that all information in this application is complete, truthful, and accurate to the best of my knowledge. I hereby authorize the MBPO to take all necessary steps to verify the accuracy of the foregoing statements and representations. I further agree to cooperate with the MBPO in any verification efforts.
I acknowledge that demographic data contained in this application will be made public in an aggregated and anonymized form.
