I'm voting for Debbie Klein for the board of education on June 3 because she's devoted herself to the Manhasset community in many capacities for more than 15 years and she's been an effective board member for the past three years. I do believe we want someone with Debbie's experience and insight during these challenging times of shrinking dollars and expanding enrollment. These reasons alone are sufficient to vote for her.
But Debbie is an extraordinary individual who possesses outstanding credentials. One of these makes her far and away the best choice. Debbie is an exceptional listener. She is one of the few people I know who listens, internalizes, responds and acts. Having served on several boards and committees, I can attest that this quality makes her a most successful board member. Debbie's ability to listen makes her proactive, not reactive. Debbie's thoughtful demeanor should not be mistaken for shyness, but is rather a reflection of her deep thought process. Debbie only speaks when she has something to say. This same skill also enables her to balance all sides of the equation. We are fortunate to have a board member who cares for all children and does not come with a specific agenda. So let's keep Debbie on the board of education and please join me on June 3 by voting for her.
We are a fortunate community to have someone as qualified as Marie Eslinger Horowitz among us. We are doubly fortunate that Marie cares enough to share her talents with our community. We strongly support Marie for membership on the school board and hope that you will too. Born and raised in Manhasset (MHS Class of 1974) Marie is an asset to our community and our schools. Marie has three children in our public schools. Beyond this, she has served this district tirelessly for the past 15 years. Marie's devotion to the Manhasset community, whether in the form of civic leadership, educational advocacy or simply being a wonderful mother and caring friend and neighbor to so many, uniquely qualifies her to serve as an advocate for the improvement of our schools and will make her a wonderful complement to the present board. We know Marie will bring an experienced point of view to the many important issues that will be facing the school board in the coming years. This is an important time for our schools and Marie has our best interests in mind. Through all her leadership endeavors, Marie has placed three values above all others: family, community and education. Remember to vote for Marie on June 3. The children of this community deserve to have a woman as qualified and diligent as Marie Horowitz to fight for the continued excellence of their education. The Manhasset School Board needs Marie.

By casting your vote for Marie Horowitz, you are voting for a woman who has her pulse on the issues that count in our schools, having devoted and is still devoting many hours on various school committees/organizations, boards, etc. A graduate of Manhasset High School, she continued her education at Ohio Wesleyan and holds degrees in science, education, psychology and testing. She is currently working toward her doctorate in educational psychology and measurement and testing. The mother of three boys, one in each school (elementary, middle and high school) Marie's outstanding record of service to our schools and community includes Munsey Park School SCA president, a member of the Citizens' Advisory Committees for Finance, and Facilities, the Manhasset Athletic Advisory Committee, Shared Decision team at the high school, Cub master for five years, member of the Interview Committee for Personnel Hiring, Tower Foundation Committee for Fundraising, Chairperson of Senior Frolic, etc. She is also a member of the board of directors of the Smalley Foundation, an educational foundation located in New York City. (On a more personal note, her mother is a former member of the Manhasset Board of Education, having served from 1969-1975.)
Her educational background, extensive knowledge of educational programs and issues; her commitment to sound educational practices, high level of enthusiasm, as well as her diverse involvement in the Manhasset schools makes her exceptionally qualified to serve on the school board, and deserves our support. I hope you agree and will cast your vote for Marie Eslinger Horowitz on June 3.
