Letter: No More Library Cuts

Friday, 07 May 2010 00:00

One of the most important services any community enjoys is its public library. You wouldn’t think so judging by the actions Governor Paterson and the New York State Assembly have taken on funding libraries and library systems in the State’s 2010-11 state budget plans.  The Governor has recommended that state aid to library systems and their member libraries be reduced by $4.2 million. The senate has rejected this recommendation, but the assembly is still debating it.

New Hyde Park Submits Fiscally Sound Budget

The New Hyde Park-Garden City Park Board of Education collaborating with the Superintendent of Schools, Robert Katulak, and our district’s administrators have put forward a budget, which is fiscally responsible in these difficult times in which we live, and maintains all essential programs for our students. We have worked hard to come up with a series of budget reductions that respects the financial needs of our taxpayers, and at the same time, continues to provide rigor and excellence for our children’s education.

Making Rounds

I have been writing Parenting Plus since February 2007. Sometimes I include personal details about my life. I strive for universal appeal but I never know for certain if I reach that goal. Although I try to make points to be helpful to parents and other community members that care about kids, sometimes I think what I make are “rounds” that are less hard-edged and softer than points.

 

Letter: Honoring Harold Nelson

When Shelter Rock Tennis and Country Club was formed, Harold Nelson was on the board of Temple Judea of Manhasset as well as the club, which adjoined. He got both to agree to enlarge a path to a paved road. The temple could park their holiday overflow on the club’s lot, and the club had access to Searingtown Road.

Letter: A Special Thanks

Written by Damien Monaco Friday, 09 April 2010 00:00

It’s been a very busy two weeks since our village election; it’s also been very exciting. I’m looking forward to both April 5 when I actually take office and April 6 when I am sworn in as mayor of Williston Park. I also look forward to serving the village as mayor and want to express my sincere thanks to all of you who worked so diligently to help get me elected. It took a large number of supporters to make this happen, with many reaching out to their friends and neighbors on my behalf. I also want to thank my opponents who stepped up and offered the residents a choice. On behalf of our residents I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Lud and Alan for their years of service to the village. I congratulate Terry Thomann, Kevin Ryne and Kevin Kiley and thank both Sue Redding and Bill LaRusso.

 

Letter: Thank You Voters and Good Wishes

Friday, 09 April 2010 00:00

On March 16, the voters of Williston Park decided that they did not want me to be their mayor. I admit I was disappointed, but there was more than enough of that to share. Prior to that election day a great deal of effort went into my Citizen Party’s campaign.  My running mate, Bill Lorusso and I take this opportunity to thank everyone who did vote for us, those who contributed time, energy and money to the campaign, those who circulated and signed petitions, put our signs on their lawns and fences, read our releases and wrote lovely letters of support. Also thanks to the merchants who allowed our material in their windows. Williston Park now has a new mayor and two new trustees who are not affiliated by party. We should give them time to adjust to their new positions so they can focus on the needs of Williston Park. They join two party affiliated veteran trustees. They are all entrusted with the guidance of the village. The entire village board has my good wishes for success through the next several years. Years that will probably be difficult because of the economics of our time. During the campaign candidates made many promises. It is now time for them to keep those promises without inane excuses.
