Goodsell to Run for Herricks School Board
David Goodsell has announced his intention to run for the position of Trustee of the Herricks Union Free School District presently held by Edward Kennedy in the election scheduled for May 18. Mr. Goodsell, a resident of Herricks for 23 years, stated, "Property taxes have created difficulties for Herricks residents and I believe that tough choices lie ahead. We as a community must carefully balance the needs of our children with the burdens placed by ever-increasing taxes at all levels. I believe that my experience can assist in carefully striking the necessary balance to ensure that Herricks remains a pre-eminent school district without overburdening its taxpayers," he stated.
