Lenore Rubino stepping down as BCA president

Lenore Rubino, president of the Burleith Citizens Association announced [PDF] in the Burleith Bell that she will be stepping down from her position in November after her five-year term. Rubino, who was noted for her opposition to the 2010 Campus Plan and student renters in general, will be replaced by Chris Clements, who represented the BCA in front of the Zoning Commission during the Campus Plan hearings. 

In an email to Vox, Rubino wrote, “I’ve been president for over 5 years and It has been an honor to serve the community.  While I am stepping down as president I will still remain on the board and actively involved in the BCA and the campus plan.” She declined to comment on whether there was a specific impetus for her decision.

Clements represented [PDF] BCA and CAG on occasion during the Campus Plan hearings over the summer. He presented no personal testimony (but was complemented by Chairman Hood on his cross-examination prowess).

The rest of the BCA board will be filled by Burleith perennials like Nan Bell and Candith Pallandre.

  4. But more importantly, does Chris Clements have ads around the neighborhood that will make students suddenly angry while doing their grocery shopping? Because that was part of Rubino’s draw.
