On behalf of my fellow trustees, I want to thank those residents who took the time to vote in our village election. We look forward to the privilege of serving you in the upcoming year and I welcome the honor and challenge of being mayor. I believe the board will be able to accomplish much by working together and working with residents, village staff and the business community.
I also want to thank our outgoing mayor, Donald Brudie, for his years of service to our village as mayor, trustee and CPOA representative and to his gracious wife, Barbara, for sharing him with us.
It is my pleasure to welcome Robert Bolebruch and Richard Silver to the village board of trustees and to extend congratulations to them on their election as village trustees. I look forward to working with them and our returning Trustees.
Shop And Dine In Garden City—Support The Local Merchants
I would like to ask you to do your part to support all businesses within Garden City that includes Seventh Street, Franklin Avenue and New Hyde Park Road. I would also like to encourage all residents and professionals within Garden City to shop locally. Your patronage will be appreciated and is needed.
Many residents consider shopping and dining in our business districts as experience shopping because they meet friends and neighbors along the way and have an opportunity to interact with them. This is in stark contrast to frantically dashing through the crowds in the mall or the big box retailers.
I encourage residents to make a conscious effort to choose Garden City as the place to shop and dine. Customer service, selection and quality are outstanding. While shopping or dining, let the merchant know that you appreciate them and all that they offer.
I hope to see you one day in one of the village’s many wonderful shops and/or restaurants.

Two Long Island childhood friends, Scott Reich and Michael Winik, recently left their respective careers as an attorney and investment banker to pursue their dream of starting a business together, online food market OurHarvest.
“When Mike and I decided to start a business, we knew it had to reflect our shared love of food, address the lifestyles of our fellow Long Islanders, and be socially responsible,” said Reich.
