A 15-year resident of Old Mill Court was elected to serve on the Rockville Centre Housing Authority, according to the Rockville Centre Herald.
The release on the site says:
[Cynthia] Boyd has a long-term record of advocating for the civil rights of residents. She organized a tenant’s association and served as vice president. Over the years she has been a regular at Housing Authority meetings, speaking on behalf of the tenants. After an FBI raid on the Old Mill Court complex in June 2011, which involved more than 100 law enforcement officers, Boyd led tenants in a meeting with Mayor Francis Murray to protest the “invasion” that she said frightened its children and seniors in an “overkill” operation that yielded very little in the way of illegal activity.
Boyd and other board members are working to rectify renovation and parking issues, as well as emergency access to the North Centre Avenue housing complex.
Boyd was officially installed at a Sept. 19 meeting.
