I would like to extend my sincerest thank you to everyone who voted in the Special District elections on Dec. 8. Local government only works if there is local participation.
I especially wish to thank all the people who supported me in my campaign for re-election as commissioner of the Port Washington Garbage District. I truly appreciate the efforts of all the people who sent their email chains, my wonderful daughter, Joanna, who made the election a “Facebook Event,” my husband, Richard M. Atkinson, who together with Jimmy Kallenberg, stood at the Port Washington train station in the cold weather encouraging commuters to vote for me, and all those who came out and voted I promise you that I will continue to work hard for all of the residents of Port Washington.
