Six villages on the Great Neck peninsula are holding elections this coming Wednesday, March 18. Even though the elections in the villages of Great Neck Estates, Great Neck Plaza, Kensington, Russell Gardens, Saddle Rock and Thomaston are all uncontested, your vote is important. Village positions --- mayor, trustee, and village justice --- all impact greatly on the quality of life in Great Neck.
Our neighbors who offer to fill these posts are volunteering not only their expertise, but much time and a lot of hard work in order to assure that we continue to live in the beautiful, well-maintained community that attracted us in the first place.
So, please, if your village is holding elections on Wednesday, be sure to get out and vote. Our local elected officials are giving of themselves, the least that we can do is to get out and show our support by voting!
