Each year, I watch more of my friends and family leave Long Island, driven out by skyrocketing taxes and a lack of good paying jobs. From Glen Cove to Plainview, I’ve seen life-long Long Islanders forced to leave their grandchildren behind and young families who must abandon their roots to seek out jobs and affordable housing elsewhere. Businesses that have employed Long Islanders for generations pack up and move out of state. Yet our Assemblyman continues to bury his head in the sand and respond with the same tired tax and spend approach.
In the upcoming election for the Glen Cove City Council the best choice is Joe Capobianco to move Glen Cove forward. Joe has made Glen Cove his home since he emigrated from Italy as a child. He has become an accomplished attorney and has the needed knowledge and skills that are required to be a council member in our city that is forever changing.
We are writing to express our support for Teri Moschetta for City Council. We have lived next door to Teri since 1998. Over the years we have come to know her as a wonderful neighbor and concerned resident.
The expression “it’s time for a change” should be the theme in selecting the next New York State Assemblyman of the 13th District. The time to vote for Lou Imbroto is also the time to facilitate a fiscal reality—one that only change can bring about.
The time to vote for Lou Imbroto is on Tuesday, Nov. 4. Here’s what Lou can do:
Many years ago it was the good fortune of Thompson Park to have Teri Moschetta move here, and my young family was especially blessed to have her as next door neighbor. Her own property has steadily improved from her passionate attention to home and garden. All of our properties are more valuable because Teri has made this community more attractive. She has volunteered, served and lead us in areas that include zoning enforcement, beautification projects, litter pick-up, and neighborhood meetings. She has brought together City Council members, the mayor, our State Assemblymen, for public meetings in our lovely neighborhood, informed them, involved them, inspired them, and gotten stuff done.
As some of you may have seen from my signs, I am running for City Council. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the Glen Cove voters.
My family and I came to Glen Cove from Sturno, Avellino. For many years, we lived on top of a store in a two-bedroom apartment at 70 Hazel St. in The Orchard. When I started at
Coles School, I did not speak English. My mother worked for factories in The Orchard and my father as a gardener and a caddy at Nassau Country Club. Eventually, my parents were able to build a home on Frost Pond Road, off of Elm Avenue, where they continue to reside today.
The Villa at Glen Cove, (aka the Livingston Project), has become a lightning rod for opposition to the building of high-density, mega residential communities in our town. Thanks to a handful of grass roots activists, the call went out to an otherwise uninformed populace that this issue needed their immediate attention. To the surprise of the administration and the Planning Board, We the People came out in huge numbers ready for battle, and it was about time.
I am writing in response to the new state push for FULL DAY pre-kindergarten in public schools. As a recently retired teacher, continuing teachers’ union president, grandparent of a second-grader, and tax payer, I have this to say: Some basic facts that are not in dispute are that school districts are working under tight fiscal constraints that are threatening the basic education we currently are trying to provide in grades K through 12.
The Regency at Glen Cove is a premier assisted living facility enabling you or your loved one to enjoy all of the amenities of a boutique hotel along with the peace of mind provided by assisted living, in an ambiance of warmth and comfort.
A clothing drive to benefit The Salvation Army, hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Glen Cove, was held in early June in the upper parking area of the Glen Cove Senior Center on Glen Street and what a success it was!
