BPCA Chairman Bill Thompson abruptly resigns

May 11, 2012 By Steven Greer

The BPCA notified it’s friendly media arm, the Broadsheet, that BPCA Chairman Bill Thompson resigned  yesterday to focus on his run for New York City Mayor in 2013.

This move is sooner than most insiders we spoke with had expected. We spoke with a source close to the BPCA who said, “This seems abrupt, strange. Normally, there would be a final BPCA meeting with congratulatory comments.”

The question remaining now is what will become of the CEO of the BPCA, Gayle Horwitz, and the newly hired staff, such as Anne Fenton? The major projects under the responsibility of Ms. Horwitz, which are Pier A and the Asphalt Green, are far behind schedule and over budget. Her approval ratings are low, according to BatteryPark.TV polls and feedback.

Governor Cuomo will appoint a new BPCA Chairperson. A new CEO could possibly be selected thereafter as well.

    As someone who has always supported Bill Thompson in his runs for office, this will not happen again. Thompson has shown total insensitivity and disrespect to the Italian American Community regarding Pier A. he has never responded to any of my letters and that of other Italian American leaders. Pier A is a scandal waiting to happen. BPCA is pouring millions of dollars into it for the benefit of a for profit business.

    Replaced cronies at BPCA with his own cronies. Is that progress? What exactly has he really accomplished? Same game, new people. Didn’t change anything. Good luck, Bill.
