Letter: Concerns for Education

As a long time Nassau County educator, I’ve seen a lack of interest at best, and some negligence to be sure, regarding fiscal management in some school districts in Nassau. The past County Executive administrations have done nothing to address these issues and have in fact exacerbated the situation by ignoring them.

 

We now have a candidate with a real plan. Adam Haber has effectively reversed a horrific situation in the Roslyn School District as School Board Trustee. He has proven there are ways to cut costs without loss of personnel and most importantly, to strengthen academic resources for students. His innovations, to name a few, included refinancing a bond, implementing cooperative purchasing, and recycling and purchasing used equipment. School buildings are very large facilities to run. Adam Haber has first-hand experience with commercial space, ensuring these facilities are run smoothly and economically. His plan for energy performance for our schools will create a profound effect on the budgets of our school districts, helping students and taxpayers alike.

 

If you have concerns about educational plans for Nassau County and the increasing tax base required to maintain our schools, you need to vote for Adam Haber in the Democratic Primary, September 10.

 

Thank you,

 

Bruce Castellano
