Community Board 9 Chairman William Rivera prepares for first executive board meeting

The new chair of Community Board 9 is getting ready to lead his first executive board meeting Tuesday night.



William Rivera says his biggest goal is to get more younger children involved in their community. Rivera has been on the community board for about three years, but says he has participated in many organizations since he was a teenager and believes Bronx teens and kids should do the same.



Another goal of his is to make residents more aware of what their community board is and how it can help them.
