This resolution, and a letter to Governor Mario Cuomo, NYS Education Department Commissioner John King, NYS Senator Jack Martins, NYS Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel and other state officials, was sent by Great Neck Public Schools Superintendent Thomas Dolan.
The resolution was approved by the GNPS Board of Education at the June 4 school board meeting.
This coming Tuesday, June 18, some of us here on the Great Neck peninsula will have an opportunity to vote. Three villages --- the Village of Great Neck, the Village of Kings Point and the Village of Lake Success--- will hold elections for mayor, trustees and village justice. None of these elections are contested, but all of these elections are important. And each and every election deserves our votes.
Of course, in a contested election, it is much easier to get out the vote. The residents come to the polls to be sure that their candidates come out the winners; it’s very important to them.
Please, please, all you senior walkers, youngsters on bikes with black hoodies and people taking chances crossing streets, take care! Take good care! Drivers can’t see you if you don’t have something reflective on your clothes. Hey, the person hit by a car one evening might be you or someone you love!
As I’m emptying the garbage pail along Middle Neck Road (it’s 5:15 a.m.), a thought pops into my mind. In the next four hours the streets are going to be aligned with spectators, fans and family as the annual Great Neck Memorial Day Parade kicks off.
I must take exception to Mike Barry’s recent column trumpeting the County Office of Legislative Budget Review’s (OLBR)’s “verdict” that the County Comptroller’s office sought and received adequate backup for payments to Super Storm Sandy contractors. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The Board of Trustees and staff of the Great Neck Library appreciate the support of the community, shown by the overwhelming approval of the library’s operating budget. Thank you for your vote of confidence which enables the library to continue to deliver services that are responsive to the needs of the community.
The Great Neck Library budget vote: was “yes” 1,038 and “no” 403.
We heartily congratulate our Great Neck Public Schools Board of Education for the public support that approved the upcoming 2013-2014 school budget! The results were 1,183 “yes” votes and 321 “no” votes.
How proud we are to live in a community that consistently supports the future, the education of our children. Great Neck understands and appreciates the quality, top-notch education that is always provided for Great Neck’s children. Each and every child is treated as an individual, with each child’s individual needs met.
I live and work in Great Neck and can’t figure out why isn’t more being done to promote the public service website www.LiveInGreatNeck.com?
It’s a site that we created free. It takes no ads. We make no money.
The site was written up in The New York Times and has all positive news about living in Great Neck.
Just to inform you that there is a book store in Great Neck, in the Guild Hall now named the “Book Nook’ at All Saints’ Church at 855 Middle Neck Road. Thousands of books, all categories, are one dollar a piece. Come for a visit Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (or on request).
