Letter: Lupinacci Thanks Election Supporters

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, after all the votes were counted, I was gratified to learn that the people of the Tenth Assembly District placed their trust in me to succeed my friend and mentor, Assemblyman James D. Conte.

I am truly overwhelmed by the support I received and grateful for the opportunity to represent the district where I have lived my entire life. It was rewarding to learn that my positive message focusing on the most pressing issues resonated with the voters.

These are truly extraordinary and difficult times. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, there remains a tremendous amount of work to rebuild Long Island. I look forward to being able to help the residents affected by the storm.  In addition to recovering from the storm, there is much work to be done to jump-start the economy and ensure that Long Island’s schools remain exceptional.

In closing, I would like to thank everyone who supported me during the past three eventful months. Whether your support was in the form of a vote, a donation, distribution of literature, or displaying a lawn sign at your home or business, it is greatly appreciated.  To those who did not support me, please know that I will work tirelessly, with leaders in all parties, to address the issues that matter to you.

Chad A. Lupinacci, Assemblyman-Elect, Tenth Assembly District

Farmingdale village officials will be holding a public hearing on Dec. 1, to reexamine school speed zones throughout the village, in order to establish a consistent school speed zone limit. 

Holidays Increase Daily Congestion 

While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town. 

 

“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”

At a special “wrap up “ meeting for the 2014 Marcum Workplace Challenge, Greater Long Island Running Club Vice President and Event Director Mindy Davidson of Farmingdale, presented a special plaque to Winsome Foulkes, team captain of the Farmingdale-based Telephonics Corporation.  Winsome is retiring from Telephonics after a long and successful career and has led the Telephonics Corporation in the Marcum Workplace Challenge since its inception.  

There is simply no better way for runners and their families to celebrate the Holiday Season than by being part of the fun at the Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Holiday 5 Kilometer Run, and on Saturday morning, Dec. 20, the Run will be celebrating its 27th anniversary edition at the John F. Kennedy Middle School in Bethpage. The run will start at 9:30 a.m. on Broadway in Bethpage.
