Friday, 08 February 2013 00:00We live in a society where it is often easy to heap criticism upon our elected officials, and in many cases the criticism is indeed valid. However, when a crisis occurs, we often look to our government for help, and the response of elected officials often define their administrations, whether it be for better of for worse
At a recent Town of Oyster Bay board meeting, a Massapequa resident thanked the board for the efforts of the town to help clean up after Sandy. While there was enough criticism to go around after the storm, particularly directed at LIPA as well as Mayor Bloomberg’s call that the New York City Marathon should go on, there are also many leaders who should be credited for their work.
The resident who spoke at that meeting, was just one of many residents who have expressed gratitude and praise for the town’s efforts in helping the area clean up and recover from Sandy. Therefore, I will also echo his sentiments and also thank Supervisor John Venditto, the members of the town board and the town’s employees for their hard work and efforts. Thanks Town of Oyster Bay.
