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.
