Our Town: Meet Your New Leader

Written by Megan Finnegan on . Posted in Posts.

As a 20-year veteran of the Upper East Side, Nicholas Viest has watched
the neighborhood change for the better over the past decades and is now
in a position to shape its future as the incoming chairperson of
Community Board 8. Viest won the seat last week after sweeping an
election against the current co-chair of the Transportation Committee,
Jonathan Horn. —

When he presented his case to fellow board members before the vote,
Viest emphasized that the reputation of the board is reflected in how
they run their meetings and vowed to improve the public perception of
CB8, a message that obviously resonated with most of the board. Viest
won 34-8 and will replace Jackie Ludorf in January. Ludorf, who ran up
against term limits, will remain on the board.
