The Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation (RIOC) announced today that Fay Fryer Christian and Margaret Smith have both officially resigned from their posts as members of the corporation’s Board of Directors. Smith resigned Monday April 9 and Christian’s resignation is effective today.

The exits of both Smith and Christian from the RIOC Board significantly changes the balance of power in decision-making at RIOC, leaving only David Kraut, Howard Polivy and Michael Shinozaki as public Board Members with four seats now vacant.

We will follow up on this story as information becomes available.
