Judy Stanton, Executive Director of the Brooklyn Heights Association, has announced her decision to retire, effective August 31, 2015. From the BHA’s announcement:
Since the early 1980’s Judy has served the BHA, first as a member of the Board of Governors and later as its first Executive Director. Known to many as “the face of the BHA,” her tenure reflects an exceptional dedication, integrity and passion for dealing with all issues that concern Brooklyn Heights. Her experience and deep community roots have been invaluable to the neighborhood. She has set a high bar for the BHA Board, and her example will inspire us as we look to the future.
As the Executive Director of the Brooklyn Heights Association, Ms. Stanton sometimes doesn’t get enough credit for keeping things on an even keel. This year was particularly busy for the BHA as it celebrated its 100th anniversary while also taking stands on serious issues facing Brooklyn Heights including tourist helicopter noise, BQE revitalization and the future of the Tobacco Warehouse.
We at BHB are grateful for her many years of service to our neighborhood, and wish her well in her retirement.
