The Garden City community has the opportunity to significantly improve the education of our children by casting your vote on Oct. 27 in favor of the proposed school bond referendum. One of the many issues covered in the bond are significant improvements to the music program at the high school. You may not be aware that there is no classroom available at the high school for the bands to hold their instruction and practice.
On Tuesday, Sept. 29 I went to a meeting at the high school, which was called to tell the public why a $36.5 million school bond is being presented for a villagewide vote on Oct. 27.
Special thanks is due to the fire department for their efforts in making Fire Prevention Day/Week the success that it was. Chief William J. Graham and our fire department do an outstanding job protecting our lives and homes.

Much attention has been paid this summer to the proposed Lighthouse Project, which is designed to refurbish the Nassau Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum and develop the 150 acres surrounding the arena.

Who in their right mind would vote to dissolve the Village of Garden City in favor of the county government? We are considered one of the most desirable places to live on Long Island.
(Editor’s Note: This letter is in response to Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray seeking comment on the proposed Lighthouse Project. It is being printed at the author’s request.)
This is a response to your invitation for residents of the Town of Hempstead to express their concerns and desires to assist you in formulating a successful path to the controlled development of the 150 acres you describe as the Nassau HUB for our Town.
