The Great Neck peninsula will see six villages hold elections this month. None of these six villages —- Great Neck Estates, Great Neck Plaza, Kensington, Russell Gardens, Saddle Rock and Thomaston —- will see contested elections. However, as always, the Great Neck Record contacted each of these villages and asked that all candidates, even though they are not contested, send in a short bio and a photo.
Each year during election times (six in March and three village elections in June) we generally receive some information from contested candidates and from some uncontested candidates. We know of candidates who have changed vacation plans in order to properly participate in their election process. One year we even received requested publicity from a candidate vacationing in Italy; email does work just about all over the world.
The Record heartily encourages all candidates, contested or not, to get to know the public and to allow the public to get to know them too. We are here to help with the very important job of helping the public get to know the candidates, their potential public officials.
We ask that our readers take the time to check out these articles and to learn a bit about those who serve us in public office.
