1. New York and Brooklyn from Michael_Novakhov (111 sites): Brooklyn Eagle: Batista leaving Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce

Hector Batista, who made history when he was the first Hispanic to be named president and CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, is leaving his post after less than a year on the job, the Brooklyn Eagle has learned.

Batista, who will officially leave the organization on June 28, has accepted a position as executive vice president and chief operating officer of the City University of New York. He will have served eight months.

His departure from the chamber was announced in a letter Chairperson Ana Oliveira wrote to the organization’s Board of Directors on Friday. J. Dozier Hasty, publisher of the Brooklyn Eagle, is a member of the board.

“When Hector joined the Brooklyn Chamber, we all looked forward to using his vast experience and talent to help boost the borough’s economy and ensure Brooklyn and New York continue to prosper,” Oliveira wrote in her letter.

Batista, who was also the CEO of the non-profit Big Brothers Big Sisters NYC, had previously served as a deputy commissioner in the Giuliani Administration and as an aide in the Brooklyn Borough President’s office, among other positions in city government.

He started his job at the chamber on Oct. 22, 2018. At the time of his appointment, he talked about how the job was like a homecoming for him.

“It’s as if my career has come full circle having started in economic development in the Brooklyn borough president’s office. I look forward to serving as an advocate and thought leader for the business community and continuing to build on the work being done at the chamber,” he said.

Oliveira referred to Batista’s short job stint in her letter to the board of directors.

“While brief, Hector’s tenure leaves us even stronger as an organization than we were when he arrived just a few months ago,” she wrote.

The chamber’s executive committee will name an interim president and put in place a process by which to select a new president, Oliveira added.

The chamber has seen several changes at the top in recent years. Batista’s predecessor, Andrew Hoan, left his post after just 18 months to move to the West Coast to lead the Portland Business Alliance. The previous president, Carlo Scissura, served for four years. He is currently president and CEO of the New York Building Congress.

Founded in 1918, the chamber is made up of more than 2,000 member businesses and is headquartered in downtown Brooklyn. It promotes economic development, advocates on behalf of its member businesses, and fights for laws favorable to small businesses.

1. New York and Brooklyn from Michael_Novakhov (111 sites): Brooklyn Eagle: OPINION: This girl scout wants more money for parks

As a kid who goes to my local park in Canarsie, Brooklyn, a lot, I’m so excited that spring is finally here. It’s almost nice enough for me to leave my winter coat at home when I go with my mom.

But sometimes when I go to other parks, I feel disappointed by the amount of litter on the ground, the overfilled garbage cans or no garbage cans at all. If the parks were cleaner, it would be so much nicer for my mom and me, and all the other people who the city’s spaces to exercise and enjoy time outside.

Since joining the Girl Scouts five years ago, I’ve learned how important our environment is, and how I can be an advocate for it. I always knew breathing clean air was good, and litter was bad, but Girl Scouts taught me how each piece of the environment connects to everything else. What goes on at my park in Canarsie has an effect on the environment as far away as the Bronx!

That’s why I’m happy that Girl Scouts of Greater New York has joined New Yorkers for Parks and other groups as part of the Play Fair Coalition to ask the mayor to spend more city money on our parks and outdoor spaces.

Parks are an important part of our city. The parks are one place in New York where everyone is equal. We all use the same basketball courts, soccer fields, and walking paths. When I’m in the parks, I feel more free and able to explore. When parks are not clean and safe, people have to find other places to exercise and spend time, and that’s too bad.

If our parks had more funding from the city, we could make sure every park has enough garbage cans for all the trash, and workers to empty them. Maybe we could even get some rubber mats around all of the playground equipment to make sure we’re all safe when we play.

Girl Scouts has taught me that I can make a difference when I use my voice and say what I believe. I hope the mayor will pay attention to organizations like the Girl Scouts of Greater New York and other members of the Play Fair Coalition by providing important funding for parks this year and beyond, so that future generations of kids like me can continue to enjoy our parks for years to come.

Kayla is a 10-year-old member of Girl Scouts of Greater New York Troop 2054 based in Canarsie, Brooklyn.
