On Sunday, April 15, the Friends of the Glen Cove Library held its annual Author's Luncheon, during which C.W. Post professor and Glen Cove resident Joan Harrison offered a stimulating preview of her upcoming history of our city. The Friends are to be congratulated for this event, and for all that they do for our library.
When asked to say a few words, however, Assemblyman Charles Lavine (D - Glen Cove) took inappropriate advantage of his cameo appearance to tout the benefits that the library will supposedly reap from the development of Glen Cove's waterfront.
I can only assume that the Assemblyman's remarks, along with the recently commenced public relations efforts of Glen Isle, sound the beginning and theme of the Democratic Party's 2007 campaign, apparently designed to elect or re-elect those who enabled, support, or will offer the least resistance to their previously engineered sell-off of our waterfront for high-rise and high-density development.
The Glen Cove Republican Committee reminds the citizens of Glen Cove of its absolute opposition to the massive Glen Isle proposal and pledges that its candidates, when elected, will do all that is legally within their power to prevent its construction.
Paul L. Meli, Chairman
Glen Cove Republican Committee
