As I write this letter, voting day in the school district has yet to take place, and the results are not yet known. What is known, however, is that many good people throughout Port Washington have taken strong stands on different sides of the candidates, of the budget and of the bond proposals.
As this letter is being read, the results are fully known and many residents of Port will be disappointed that their views did not prevail. I respectfully remind both those who are pleased and those who are displeased that we all still live together on a rather small peninsula. There is no room for intimidation or angry rebukes. There must be a realization that the citizenry has spoken and we must all move forward together in the direction which has been set by the vote.
The work of the school district is for the benefit of the children. If our children were involved in an angry squabble in the schoolyard, we would exhort them to act like adults and makeup with each other. We should learn from our children and work jointly for their benefit.
