John Dew, Chairperson of Community Board 2, an independent city agency that provides local review of land use and other applications, the city budget and municipal service delivery for Brooklyn Heights and nearby neighborhoods, welcomed three new members of the Board, two to replace outgoing members whose terms have expired and one to fill the unexpired term of a member who resigned. Two of the new members, Hannah Scholl and BHB contributor (and confessed Republican) T.K. Small, are Heights residents. Both are attorneys. Ms. Scholl, who has lived in the Heights for five years, is a litigator with the prominent Manhattan firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison. She previously worked in an engineering firm, specializing in transportation projects. Mr. Small, a lifelong Heights resident, is a solo practitioner primarily working in the field of disability law, and also co-hosts “The Largest Minority,” a radio program on WBAI that focuses on disability news and culture. Ms. Scholl was appointed for a term expiring on March 31, 2012, and Mr. Small to a vacancy on the class of 2011. Both were appointed on the recommendation of City Council Member Steve Levin.
