This letter is in response to last week’s letters from Glen Cove residents addressing the proposition for the City of Glen Cove that will be on the ballot in Glen Cove on Election Day, Nov. 2. Our goal is to set the record straight for voters as to what the proposition really is about.
Using the words “term extensions” in last week’s letters misleads the voters into thinking that the proposition will extend the terms of those currently in office. This is absolutely not the case. The following is the explanation of Proposition 1 as described by the Nassau County Board of Elections:
Proposition City of Glen Cove (Proposition 1) “Starting with the election of November 1, 2011, the term of the Mayor and City Council of Glen Cove, NY will be lengthened from two (2) years to four (4) years” (emphasis added). The change in terms begins with whomever the voters ELECT in 2011. The new four year terms will commence on January 1, 2012.
(This explanation will be available at all polling places on Election Day.)
We urge voters to support this proposition. It is all about more effective governing. Give those officials elected in 2011 the time they need to achieve their goals. Vote YES Proposition City of Glen Cove on Election Day, Nov. 2.
Julie McCann, Chairperson,
Four Years 4 Glen Cove
