As a child I used to drive with my mother through the Village of Garden City and I was in awe of what I saw: The picture-perfect village store and shops, the sprawling mansions and majestic homes perched on endless rolling hills of green. Many years later, I became the editor of Garden City Life and I am happy to say I know many of the fine residents who live within these abodes and call this special place their home.
During my editorship, I have been privy to all the intricate aspects and inner-workings of this village and listened to the hot-button topics that matter most to all of its residents. And all along the way, I have met passionate and determined individuals, dedicated government officials and longtime public servants who care about their community, their schools and their children’s futures.
From the volunteers on the board of education to the members of the village board, each individual offers their valuable time and knowledge to make up the fabric of this close-knit community’s diverse tapestry. As I look back at my role here, I hope I was able to bring to light the issues that mattered most and tell the stories you hold dear, one word at a time.
While I may be leaving to explore greener pastures, I must admit there’s truly no place like Garden City. I hope you will welcome my successor, Dave Gil de Rubio as he takes the reins in his new adventure.
