Congratulations, and thank you, to our outstanding Great Neck Public Schools Board of Education! Let’s all take a moment to reflect on all that our school board does, for every single child, every single day. As we mark New York State School Board Recognition Week, from Oct. 28 to Nov. 1, let’s remember, too, to honor and recognize our very own board: President Barbara Berkowitz, Vice President Lawrence Gross and trustees Donald Ahkenase, Monique Bloom and Susan Healy.
Warmest congratulations to each and every Board of Education member as we celebrate School Board Recognition Week in New York State. For years, our schools have been achieving excellence under their guidance. We have many, many years of dedication and hard work for which to thank them.
Thanks to our President Barbara Berkowitz, Vice President Lawrence R. Gross, and Trustees Donald L. Ashkenase, Monique Bloom, and Susan Healy for their countless hours spent on behalf of the students in Great Neck. Your commitment to the community is unparalleled.
We look forward to an inspired commitment to excellence for the future of our district.
Lori Beth Schwartz, president, United Parent-Teacher Council, Great Neck Public Schools
Over the last decade I have worn many hats in the Great Neck community and after husband, father and grandfather, the one I am most proud of is “friend” of Judi Bosworth. My relationship with Judi began as I started to get involved within the community on a volunteer basis. One of the first acquaintances I made was Judi Bosworth. We met at a CLASP dinner in Lake Success. I can still tell you what she wore because, in her usual style, she was a lady who owned the room without saying a word. As time went on and our paths crossed more frequently, I learned first hand what this woman was about - the community, and how she could help.
As a retired New York City schoolteacher and an active participant in the local community for many years, I have had the opportunity to meet and work with dozens of elected officials. None of them possess more dedication and commitment to the residents they lead than North Hempstead Town Councilwoman Lee Seeman. For that reason, I am proud to support her as she runs for her third term representing the 5th Council District in the Town of North Hempstead.
I have known Judi Bosworth for over 25 years. I met Judi when she was president of the Saddle Rock Elementary School PTA. At the first meeting, I knew that we, as parents, were in extremely capable hands. It is very rare to meet someone and feel so confident that our issues and concerns are going to be represented in a thoughtful, effective and compassionate manner.
Election Day is coming up soon! Tuesday, Nov. 5, is the day we go to the polls and, this year we choose many of our town and county public officials. In fact, this year we choose our town and county leaders. Contested spots are open for the county executive, county comptroller and county legislator. There is a contested election for town supervisor, town clerk and many town council members.
A few weeks ago Carol Frank was notified by Anton Publications that they were eliminating the position of associate editor of the Great Neck Record.
I’ve known Carol for over 30 years --- her dedication and love for this community is unparalleled and I’m sure we will all feel the loss of her honest and objective reporting of affairs concerning our town.
Thank you, Carol Frank, for your contributions to Great Neck. Your articles will be sorely missed by this reader!
I write to applaud Judi Bosworth, a consummate and courageous representative of all who live in the several communities gifted by her superb leadership as our current county legislator.
Well, yes, our school taxes have skyrocketed this year. Our school district once again is managing to keep the school budget under the state-mandated 2 percent tax cap levy (while still maintaining a stellar public school system) but yet our taxes have gone up, some as high as 10 percent. Why? How can that be?
Just two weeks ago two women were injured (one seriously injured) walking in the road, on Arrandale Avenue, in the dark, around 6:30 p.m. It was dark, apparently the driver did not see them, the women were hit and the driver left the scene of this accident.
While this was apparently an accident, it surely could have been easily avoided if the women were walking on the sidewalk. One side of Arrandale Avenue does have a sidewalk and that is where all pedestrians should walk. Not every street in Great Neck has sidewalks and there, of course, all pedestrians should use extreme caution in those cases. But when a road does provide a safe sidewalk, why not be truly careful and use that sidewalk.
