Thank you to all of our Jericho School District residents who came out to vote this week. I truly appreciate the support we received for our school budget and the vote of confidence I received in being re-elected to the Board of Education. As your board trustee, I will continue to do my very best to represent the values and concerns of our community and I look forward to hearing from you when you have an issue or matter of concern to share with the board.
I had the privilege of running with two very talented candidates, Mark Basile and Bill Ferro. My sincere congratulations to Bill Ferro on his election to the Board and I am looking forward to working with him. I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to Mark Basile for his dedication to our students and his service to our community over the past three years as our Board trustee. It was a pleasure working with him.
I would also like to thank my dear friend and campaign manager, Tal Ourian. I am very fortunate to have had her wonderful friendship, energy and unwavering support throughout my entire campaign. I could not have been re-elected without her. Thank you to all of the friends and supporters who helped make my campaign a success. Thank you for the endorsements and letters of support I received from our local community groups and to all of the people who wrote the wonderful letters to the editor, posted signs on your lawns, sent emails and made phone calls and so much more. I could not have done it without your help. Finally I would like to thank the entire community for putting up with all of those unsightly lawn signs once again.
And as always, to our Jericho students, I have faith in each and every one of you. You have the ability to achieve your dreams and my only wish is to help you get there.
