A spokesperson for District Attorney Ken Thompson’s office confirmed to VIN News that Wolf Sender, long time district manager for Community Board 12, will be joining the DA’s office.
“I will be working with the Jewish community for the District Attorney’s office,” Sender told VIN News. “I am here for whatever the DA needs. I hope to accomplish whatever I can for our kehilla.”
Sender says that he will start work at the District Attorney’s office on Monday, February 3rd. It is unknown at this time if Sender will take over the duties of Henna White who served as a liaison to the Jewish community under District Attorney Charles Hynes.
Sender, a Flatbush resident, has served on Community Board 12 for eleven years and has worked under former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, former Comptroller Carl McCall and under former Governor David Paterson during his tenure as New York State Senate minority leader.
“This is great for the Jewish community and everyone in Brooklyn,” said Assemblyman Dov Hikind. “Wolf Sender is a class act and a professional and I am just thrilled to hear about this.”
