Letter: Congratulations Floral Park Voters

Friday, 26 November 2010 00:00

The $5 million bond referendum put forth by the Floral Park-Bellerose UFSD was voted down. There is no question that much of the work proposed needs to be done, including upgrading and/or replacing boilers; major roof replacement work; wiring upgrades (although possibly a different scope than presented); drainage; and masonry/brick repairs.

 

Letter: Mayor Greene Thanks Floral Park Community

Friday, 19 November 2010 00:00

It is with great regret that I write the following letter to you as a means of letting you know that I have decided not to run for a second term as mayor of the Village of Floral Park. Having been blessed with the chance to serve my hometown for almost 16 years as both your trustee and then your mayor, this decision did not come easy. In recent months, my responsibilities at Con Edison, where I am a construction manager, have expanded dramatically. This change in my professional life, coupled with my decision to spend more time with my family helped me to realize I could not continue to oversee affairs in Floral Park with the same level of diligence that I have in the past, and in truth, that I was comfortable with as an elected representative.

Veterans Day and the Great War

It was once called the “Great War” until an even bigger war was fought and since they could not call that, “The Greater War” they settled on WWI and WWII. I recalled this at the memorial ceremony we had on Veterans Day, formerly Armistice Day, which was, as always, moving.

 

Letter: Floral Park Resident Urges Community to Vote Down Bond Referendum

Friday, 12 November 2010 00:00
At Nov. 8, bond/board meeting of the Floral Park Bellerose UFSD, it was painfully obvious that the individuals elected to represent us, the hardworking taxpayers of this fine village have not been doing their job. It was apparent even to the most casual of observers that the issue of an ESCO/EPC was not researched at all. As the audience heard from the news excerpts I read aloud, Garden City and Roslyn have entered into agreements with ESCOs and the cost savings to the taxpayers has been enormous. Those districts reflect only a very small fraction of the districts on Long Island and throughout the State of New York who have done so. The weak assertion by the board that they spoke to Carle Place School District gave the illusion that Carle Place was perhaps unhappy with their decision to do so; not true. Yes, it is true that Carle Place did not have boiler installations as part of their agreement, however, there can be many reasons for that. Perhaps they did not need new boilers at this time.

The Romance of Science and Discovery

When I was in the third grade I wanted to be an inventor.  Inspired by MGM’s 1940 biopic, Edison the Man starring the incomparable Spencer Tracy, I endeavored to discover something that would change the world. “Edison,” said one of his principal biographers, “invented the 20th century.”

The Twilight Zone of Public Financing

At a recent luncheon a friend of mine, whose opinions I respect, leaned over the table and told me, sotto voce, that the opposition I helped mobilize against the Third Track was really overdone. This unexpected sally was like being struck by lightning on a cloudless, blue day.
