It’s that time of year again! It’s election time for the Manhasset Park District and I am writing to you, my neighbors, to ask you once again to support Ann Marie Curd (Fruhauf) and re-elect her as Manhasset Parks District Commissioner on Dec. 13.
For several reasons, I believe Ann Marie to be the best candidate for the position. Since taking office only 16 months ago, she has already created great changes in the way things run at the park district office. Updating filing techniques and archiving procedures, and working to improve services to the community are only a few of the initiatives that are the result of Ann Marie’s hard work.
Ann Marie’s extensive previous civic work means that she knows and understands the concerns of residents. She volunteered to attend monthly meetings of the Greater Council of Manhasset Civic Associations on behalf of the park district for this reason. Each month Ann Marie updates the members on park district activities and additionally she listens and addresses the concerns of residents.
Ann Marie, who practiced law for over 20 years, works from home which means that she is in the district every day and can respond quickly to any issues that arise at the park district office.
She is the only commissioner who has their email posted on the website so anyone can communicate with her directly by email. The position of Park District Commissioner does not require any commitment beyond attending regular meetings but Ann Marie constantly goes above and beyond.
Most importantly though, it is Ann Marie’s love for and ongoing dedication to her community that mean she brings all of her energy to the position and will continue to represent the community at the Manhasset Park District with a strong commitment.
Please join me in supporting Ann Marie Curd by marking your calendar for the election—Tuesday, Dec. 13 from 3-9 p.m. at the MLFD House on Bayview Avenue. I urge you to re-elect Ann Marie for another term so that she may continue her great work!
