In the upcoming mayoral and Glen Cove City Council elections, I would like to give my full support to the Glen Cove Voters team consisting of Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi and Glen Cove City Council Members Delia DeRiggi-Whitton, Nick DiLeo, Sean Dwyer, Mike Famiglietti, Tony Jimenez and Tim Tenke. Under their leadership Glen Cove has taken a turn in the right direction. There is a level of open and honest government that was absent from Glen Cove several years ago.
It is very difficult for many of us to forget those few short years ago when there were intense feelings of mistrust and deceit in the city. Those that caused those feelings are gone and a calmness has now blanketed Glen Cove. This team of good, honest people has brought this about. There will always be some arguments, disputes and intense disagreements, but someone would be hard pressed to find a lack of trust or good character in these people.I hope more people have the opportunity at some point to get to know all of them and witness the commitment they have to Glen Cove. For myself it has been impressive to see and I am going to work to see it continue. My first step is to ask all of you to come out on election day in full support of Ralph Suozzi and this great team of city council members by pulling all seven levers on the Glen Cove Voters line.
