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.
We would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank The Metropolitan in Glen Cove for its generous hospitality in hosting the recent conference, “Gray Matters,” supported by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock and sponsored by the Glen Cove SAGE Foundation and the Glen Cove Senior Center.
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.
As a community, you recognize the importance of supporting a strong, rigorous educational program, rich with extracurricular opportunities. The proposed budget continues this, with an eye toward both the educational and financial future of Glen Cove.
The 2013-2014 School Budget passed by 1,735 yes votes to 1,222 no votes. Marianne Manning Russo, Michael Nightingale and Sara Jones have been elected as trustees to the North Shore Schools Board of Education. We thank Carolyn Mazzu Genovesi, George Pombar and Anna Sharkey for their many years of dedicated service to the board and the North Shore community. Additionally, many thanks to community members Tim Madden and James O’Sullivan for running this year for the board of education.
On May 9, I stood in the pouring rain at Old Bethpage Restoration Village and watched as several World War II armored vehicles rolled down the road and provided the backdrop for public officials who had gathered to announce Nassau County’s new Museum of American Armor.
The scene was striking in its symbolism; an image that reflects what happens in places around the world every day. With the sound of the rain drumming against the iconic Sherman tank, jeeps, weapons carriers, gunners, and other combat vehicles, “soldiers” peered from the tops of tanks offering a too-real image of the daily lives of our military.
We must never allow ourselves or LIPA/National Grid to think that the utility has done Glenwood Landing and our larger North Shore community a favor by being there in that prime waterfront location, just because it has paid its taxes. The taxes paid by the utility over the years cannot begin to make up for our lost real estate wealth and revenue and our quality of life. Let us imagine that the power plant had never been there, and that those lands, pristine and picturesque, had been allowed to develop in the way all prime waterfront properties traditionally develop —giving our communities a vastly more beneficent and enduring tax base in that location — to remind ourselves that we owe nothing to LIPA or National Grid.
Our schools have been recognized as among the best in the country for the excellent achievements of our students in academics, the arts, and athletics.
In January, we agreed to stay within the N.Y. State cap on the allowable tax levy limit, needing approval of a majority vote to pass. The adopted budget for 2013-14 (Proposition 1) represents a 3.84 percent increase from last year.
