Letter: Mayor Shuts Out Glen Cove Businesses!

Friday, 05 July 2013 00:00

Once again in an attempt to put Glen Cove out of business, our mayor, Ralph Suozzi, has decided Glen Cove businesses are not wanted at his very own event, Sea Faire.

Why Mr. Mayor, don’t your want our very own restaurants participating? Why weren’t they asked? Why Mr. Mayor don’t you want our local jewelry makers participating? Why weren’t they asked? Why Mr. Mayor don’t you want our local artists participating? WHY Mayor Suozzi, WHY?

 

Letter: SAFE’s Family Day Raises Awareness

Thursday, 11 July 2013 00:00

On behalf of SAFE’s Glen Cove PRIDE Project Coalition, we wish to thank the area businesses and residents that helped to make our 6th annual Family Awareness Day a great success!

Because of the outpouring of support from City of Glen Cove Community Development Agency, Glen Cove City Hall, Health Plus, Planned Parenthood, Glen Cove Youth Bureau’s After 3 Program, ChiroWellness, the Tobacco Action Coalition of Long Island, Glen Cove Emergency Medical Services Corps, Glen Cove Volunteer Fire Department, Glen Cove Police Department, Kiwanis Club of Glen Cove, Go Open Market Inc., and GMA Martial ARTS; hundreds of Glen Cove residents were able to receive information about local services and programs that promote family health, family unity, and a substance abuse free family environment. Because of generous donations from Clay Nation, Garvies Point Museum and Preserve, Glen Cove City’s Parks and Recreational Department, the Mead Family, Lowe’s Home Improvement Store in Westbury, families were prized with gifts that promoted family togetherness and community involvement. Volunteers including SAFE Board Director Mary Berhang, Roseanne Suozzi, Melanie Weise, Robin Mead, Victoria Mead, and Leena (Puffy) Harris have remained one of the most dedicated group of people Family Awareness Day has seen yet!

 

Letter: Fiscal Failure

Thursday, 11 July 2013 00:00

After reading “State: Glen Cove finances most stressed on LI,” published in Newsday on June 18 and I must say I am deeply concerned with Mayor Suozzi’s indifference to the gravity of his fiduciary responsibility to Glen Cove taxpayers. Another source of concern for me is the Mayor’s dismissive attitude regarding the NY State Comptroller’s warnings and suggestions as they pertain to Glen Cove’s financial health. Under Suozzi’s watch, Glen Cove taxpayers are now burdened with the “most fiscally stressed municipality on Long Island,” and ...” one of the nine most stressed in New York” as well as a list of stressful negatives which include higher taxes, a bond downgrade, a growing deficit, and overwhelming debt.

Letter: Viking Masquers Gala Raises $45K

Thursday, 04 July 2013 00:00

The Arts Angels booster club of North Shore Schools is thrilled to report that the Viking Masquers 50th Anniversary Gala raised over $45,000 (and counting!) to revive the district’s Summer Theater Workshop program.  Over 140 alumni and current students participated in a sold-out Alumni Show, preceded by a sold out dinner with raffles and auction.  Many thanks to all in the community - individuals and businesses - who supported this event with generous donations and to the many volunteers who gave their talents, time and energy to this effort.  

The Summer Theater Workshop ran for 42 years until funding was cut a decade ago. It provided intensive six-week production-based training in all aspects of the dramatic arts and added up to four shows to the community’s summer entertainment options.   It was begun by Masquers founding advisor Bruce Mooney, now retired to North Carolina, who came back to North Shore to be honored at the event, along with founding music director, renowned music educator Bennett Lentczner, who was one of three orchestra conductors for the evening.  

 

Letter: Open Letter To Nassau Administration – Keep Going on West Shore Road

Thursday, 27 June 2013 00:00

Regarding West Shore Road’s repair, I am glad to see that the first of three phases is approaching completion and the road has been opened. The ordeal of a road closure has been an enormous burden on everyone, especially local businesses.

Letter: Response To Weitzman

Thursday, 20 June 2013 00:00

In what can only be deemed as a desperate attempt to win votes that he’s sure not to have, Howard Weitzman is choosing to run his campaign by attacking the credibility of his opponent, rather than run for election to the Nassau County Comptroller’s office based on his own merit. Surely this is due to the fact that Weitzman recognizes his own record of ineptitude and understands that he has a very slim chance of getting elected. Using such childish tactics as falsely accusing current County Comptroller George Maragos of wrongdoing merely bolsters the probability of Maragos’ reelection. Weitzman and his squad made a mess of Nassau County. We are extremely fortunate that we’ve had George Maragos and his team around to clean it up.


 

Letter: Where Is The Republican Leadership?

Thursday, 20 June 2013 00:00

There has been an overwhelming response to my recent criticisms of the Republican Party (a party that I have supported since age 18).  Whereas some nestled in the local establishment question my principles, I ask that more Republicans question the principles of their party’s establishment. Glen Cove, for example, has an estimated population of 27,100 according to the U.S. Census Bureau.  Despite our size, Paul Meli, chairman of the Glen Cove Republican Party, could not find seven registered Republicans to run for mayor and city council this year.  Mayoral candidate Reginald “Reggie” Spinello is a registered member of the Independence Party.  City council candidate Linda Darby is a registered Democrat. How do their core beliefs support Republican principles?
