Thankfully, our residents have a choice during this year’s Williston Park village election on Tuesday, March 20 for the two open trustee positions. Three candidates interested and willing to work for our village have come forward for these seats and whichever two have the greatest number of votes will be on the board.
Each one has contributed to our quality of life and would like to continue on that track. Each one is neighborly and has worked with our youth in varying capacities. I commend each one for coming forward and I look forward to working with the two who succeed as elected trustees.
I would like to take this opportunity to share my thoughts about Diane Thorp. We know that she is a long-time resident, mother of three, grandmother of two, professional nurse and supervisor, Girl Scout leader, church activist, coach, etc. What I would like to highlight is her intelligence, her leadership skills, her moral compass, her tremendous breadth of management experience and her independent and impartial mindset. Williston Park needs her skills!
We are all aware that every level of government is facing challenges. The experience and expertise of each member of the board is needed to address the complex issues we face. Diane’s professional resume certainly more than qualifies. Our future also depends on visionary, independent thinking and intelligence. Please be sure to make two choices for our Williston Park Village Board on Tuesday, March 20; but let one of them be for Diane Thorp.
