Editorial: Vote In Your Village Election!

Thursday, 13 June 2013 00:00

This coming Tuesday, June 18, some of us here on the Great Neck peninsula will have an opportunity to vote. Three villages --- the Village of Great Neck, the Village of Kings Point and the Village of Lake Success--- will hold elections for mayor, trustees and village justice. None of  these elections are contested, but all of these elections are important. And each and every election deserves our votes.

Of course, in a contested election, it is much easier to get out the vote. The residents come to the polls to be sure that their candidates come out the winners; it’s very important to them.

Please, please, all you senior walkers, youngsters on bikes with black hoodies and people taking chances crossing streets, take care! Take good care! Drivers can’t see you if you don’t have something reflective on your clothes.  Hey, the person hit by a car one evening might be you or someone you love!

 

Letter: Proud To Be An American

Thursday, 06 June 2013 00:00

As I’m emptying the garbage pail along Middle Neck Road (it’s 5:15 a.m.), a thought pops into my mind. In the next four hours the streets are going to be aligned with spectators, fans and family as the annual Great Neck Memorial Day Parade kicks off.

Letter: A Response to Mike Barry’s Column

Thursday, 30 May 2013 00:00

I must take exception to Mike Barry’s recent column trumpeting the County Office of Legislative Budget Review’s  (OLBR)’s “verdict” that the County Comptroller’s office sought and received adequate backup for payments to Super Storm Sandy contractors. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Letter: Great Neck Website

Thursday, 23 May 2013 00:00

I live and work in Great Neck and can’t figure out why isn’t more being done to promote the public service website www.LiveInGreatNeck.com?

It’s a site that we created free. It takes no ads. We make no money.

 

The site was written up in The New York Times and has all positive news about living in Great Neck.
