Opinion

I was in attendance at the BOE meeting on March 6, where a motion was approved by the board creating four school voting places (quadrants), which are as follows: Sousa School (mainly to accommodate Manorhaven voters), Daly School, Weber Middle School and South Salem School.

The results were most gratifying to me personally, the Concerned Citizens of Manorhaven Civic Association, the majority of the voters in Port Washington, with the Village of Manorhaven in particular. It has been the culmination of efforts by me, with the sponsorship of the Concerned Citizens of Manorhaven C.A., and the support of the General Council of Homeowner Associations of Port Washington, starting in 1993.

I am extremely thankful to all BOE members, Dr. Gordon, Mary Callahan, but especially to Board President Seiden, Nancy Cowles and Pat Foye, who appeared to be in the forefront in establishing the four voting sites (quadrants).

All Port Washington voters should be grateful for the decision by the BOE to create additional school voting sites. The hazardous traffic conditions on Campus Drive will finally be eliminated on school voting day.

Michael F. Ragusa, President Emeritus

Concerned Citizens of Manorhaven Civic Assoc.
