As a citizen of Glen Cove, I would like to express my appreciation to Paul Meli and his running mates for the efforts and sacrifices that they made in their recent run for the offices of mayor and city council this election season. They sacrificed family, work and personal time by putting their lives on hold because they each knew they had the desire and talent to improve our city. Individually, they are a very gifted group of concerned citizens who wanted a better Glen Cove. They gave the voters of Glen Cove a viable option and stimulated debate, whether at Stop & Shop, or in front of our houses while tirelessly walking door to door, about the condition of our city and the direction in which it is taking. I thank each and every one of them for making the sacrifice and giving me and my fellow citizens an option in the voting booth this year.
