The president of the North Shore School Board, Carolyn Mazzu Genovesi, was present with Board Trustee Tom Knierim, Assistant Superintendent for Business Olivia Buatsi, and Legislative Action Committee Chairperson Thomas Murphy, when Governor Cuomo’s senior administration presented details of their plan to restructure LIPA at a recent public meeting held at SUNY Old Westbury on June 5.
Genovesi was able to give extensive testimony to be transcribed and made part of the record as it concerns to LIPA’s decommissioning of the Glenwood Landing power plant and its potential tax impact. After the public presentation by the senior officials, Genovesi stated, “I was pleased that the slide presentation, as well as the comments from the secretary to the Governor (Larry Schwartz), recognized a need to have a fair and balanced solution to address the tax challenges faced by municipalities including the school district as LIPA is restructured.”
During public comment, Genovesi raised concerns to the officials communicating that while the governor’s restructuring legislation (e.g., Governor’s Program Bill #6) puts forth a new structure for LIPA, it does not include language that addresses a solution for the decommissioning of the Glenwood Landing LIPA plant. She outlined the district’s concerns regarding the timing of the legislation and urged that language to address this problem be included as part of Governor’s Program Bill #6.

Driving rain and an early start time did not deter 600 people who arrived at Crest Hollow Country Club recently to celebrate the Women’s Fund of Long Island’s 20th year and to honor four exceptional women.
The breakfast started with a meet and greet and a chance to showcase Women’s Fund contest winner Patti Hogarty, designer of “Women as Bamboo.” Inspired by her neighbor’s bamboo, she entered the contest drawing a design of the bamboo, which Ambalu Jewelers of Roslyn then turned into various pendants of which 40 percent of the profits would go to WFLI. Hogarty wrote a short essay comparing women to bamboo in that they are strong and can weather difficult storms, yet remain graceful and continue to grow sending out new shoots.
