From the Desk of Congressman Gary Ackerman: July 2, 2010

House/Senate Pass Iran Sanctions Bill

United States Congressman Gary Ackerman hailed House and Senate passage of legislation he helped to craft that imposes crippling new sanctions on Iran. The measure, passed by the Senate this afternoon and the House last week is now expected to be signed into law by President Obama.

Ackerman, the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia, played a key role in shaping the legislation as a member of the House-Senate conference committee that reconciled differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill. The panel produced the final version of the legislation that both chambers approved today.

The bill aims to force Iran to abandon its nuclear weapons program by choking its energy and financial sectors.

The Mayor’s Corner: June 18, 2010

Written by Williston Park Mayor Paul Ehrbar Friday, 18 June 2010 00:00

Today, May 31, I marched in my first Memorial Day Parade, as your mayor, through the streets of Williston Park. It was a great honor to be part of this eventful day, honoring our troops, who have passed away while serving in our armed forces. The American Legion did a fantastic job of organizing and  directing the day’s events.  Their ceremony at the Legion Hall was both  heartwarming and chilling. The dedication the Legionnaires demonstrated in remembering  our fallen soldiers  sent a strong message to those in attendance. They are to be commended for these efforts.

 

Letter: A Deafening and Defining Silence, Just Vote Yes

Friday, 11 June 2010 00:00

For years we continue to hear about the wonderful achievements of the incredible Herricks School District. Intel awards, Grammy’s, the Arts, and recently the beginning of Athletic Championships again. How wonderful we have all felt, until this year.

The residents of the community year after year have supported budget after budget, occasionally questioning a few items here and there but together with the school board worked to ensure education excellence in the community. We even overwhelmingly supported a bond issue needed for capital improvements, and the purchases of new transportation equipment. Again, all on the financial “backs” of the residents. We haven’t moaned or groaned we just hunker down every year and do what we always do pay! Pay to ensure the educational integrity for all our children in the Herricks School District; until this year!

 

Letter: Thank You to a Community That Unites

Friday, 11 June 2010 00:00

If you had MapQuested the community known as New Hyde Park/Garden City Park on Saturday June 5th your result would be just your normal Long Island town of section, blocks and lots, but if you did the same on June 6th between the hours of 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. your search would result in a community united.

A community that became one family joined by one common goal, a goal to raise money to find a cure for MS.   With the state of the economy put aside this family did what a family does best and came together.   They came together with no questions asked, just with love in their heart. 

 

Letter: No Meltdown in Herricks

Friday, 04 June 2010 00:00
Had the Herricks school budget passed by a single vote, all would be well. Since it failed by the same margin, it’s a crisis. School board candidates ran unopposed. Budget meetings were sparsely attended. School administrators and board members were in confident denial.

Winding Down the Academic Year

As we wind down another academic year, and we all begin to make plans for the summer vacation, it is often a good time to pause and reflect upon the year that just passed. The year could really be evaluated as a road trip that many of us will be taking this summer.

 

Letter: Thank for Voting in Support of the Budget

Friday, 28 May 2010 09:00

Dear neighbors, friends and fellow taxpayers of New Hyde Park/ Garden City Park and Sewanhaka School Districts,  it is with great pride and sincere appreciation that I am writing this letter to you.  On May 18th, you overwhelmingly approved the fiscally responsible budgets.   

There is no better way for all of us to show that we value quality education than by supporting the budgets presented.  Those of you who attended our budget meetings, asked questions and voiced your opinions and concerns, thank you for taking the time and understanding the process.  You also made a concerted effort to reach out to others.  I applaud each and everyone who made it to the polls on Tuesday.  Nothing could keep us away, the long lines…not even Mother Nature.

 

Letter: Promises Kept and Broken….

Friday, 21 May 2010 00:00

When Williston Park Mayor Paul Ehrbar ran for that office he was a sitting appointed member of the Herricks School Board.   During his mayoral campaign he made several promises to the voters.  One was that he would be a full time mayor.  To date it appears he has kept that promise.  He spends hours each day at the village hall or in the field with staff.  That is good.  Being mayor is a serious responsibility and there is much to learn and do.
