(Editor's Note: As with all village elections, immediately following the last date to file a petition to run for office, the Great Neck Record contacts each village's clerk/treasurer, asking for the names of the candidates. And, as well, we ask that the village contact each candidate, asking for a biography, a photograph, and a statement as to why the candidate is running for office. Some villages, and some candidates, do comply. In the weeks to come, we will publish all such election materials.)
