A special session of the Glen Cove City Council was called on Tuesday, June 11 to discuss and vote on a new tenant for the Soundview Restaurant at the GC Golf Course.
For those not familiar, the prior tenant vacated November of 2012 leaving the city ample time to find a replacement for the start of the 2013 Golf Season. The RFP did not go out until the end of February with bids due back March 25. This was followed by an evaluation and presentation of proposer to the council for vote on April 9. The operator was required to open the snack bar by April 19 and the restaurant by May 1. Already this was behind schedule as golfing begins in April and a tenant would need six weeks for a liquor license.
Mike Barry’s column in this newspaper, titled “Quietly Vindicated,” correctly pointed out that Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos is indeed a financial watchdog who diligently protects the tax dollars of all Nassau County residents. That Mr. Maragos is doing his job is, of course, a source of concern for Howard Weitzman, the Democrat candidate seeking Mr. Maragos’ position. In fact he submitted a letter to the editor of this newspaper.
Earlier this spring I noticed a small posting in the newspaper about a field trip taken by North Shore High School students for an educational tour of the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District. One would wonder why the class would have to travel to Great Neck when Glen Cove has such a facility.
I am a lifelong Democrat. I come from a family of staunch Democrats. As a child the first word I could spell was “Roosevelt.” I was going to door-to-door giving out flyers at the age of 11. My father was a Democratic leader. I was a Democratic committeeman as a well as a candidate on the Democratic line – one loss and one win. I was taught that to vote for anyone but a Democrat risks your voting hand falling off.
During this past week, we reported our father, Paul Stanco, who is almost 82 years old, had gone missing while on an errand. After over 24 hours, Paul was found on Wednesday evening on a back road in Locust Valley; he was immediately sent for treatment where he was deemed dehydrated but healthy to return home, after a short stay in the Hospital. We are happy to say that he is now finding comfort back with his family.
My name is David Leon and I am the Glen Cove Police Benevolent Association president. I writing in regards to the alleged coaching that the Glen Cove Teachers are being accused of.
I want to thank everyone who came out and voted on May 21 to support our schools.

On behalf of the Glen Cove City School District, I thank voters for their support of the proposed 2013-14 school district budget. During these challenging times in Glen Cove, it’s gratifying to see that our shared goal of providing the best possible education for children has not wavered.
