Editorial: Support Our Children … Vote ‘Yes’ For Our School Budget

 

This coming Tuesday, May 21, is the day to vote “yes” for our children and for our school budget, for our school board trustee Monique Bloom (running unopposed) and for our library budget as well. 

 

The Great Neck Public Schools do an exemplary job of educating our children and we can show our support, and say thank you, by voting for our school district’s budget and to re-elect our board of education trustee.

 

In such trying economic times and with increasing state and federal government mandates and decreasing funding, we are most fortunate indeed to be blessed with a dedicated board of education and an outstanding school administration and faculty. Taxpayer money is spent with the greatest of care, with the maximum effort to ensure the best possible education for our children under the most fiscally prudent of budgets.

 

A Great Neck education is top-notch, as always, placing each child’s needs as a priority, making very sure that each individual student receives the education that is right for that child. And yes, with all they offer our children, the Great Neck Public Schools still manage to stay within the state mandated two percent tax cap.

 

We cannot, we must not, become complacent. Our children and our future are way too important. We must all show up at the polls next Tuesday to vote “yes” for the 2013-2014 school budget. It’s the right thing to do. 

 

Voting is from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. For residents who live north of the Long Island Rail Road station, the polls are at the E.M. Baker Elementary School. For residents who live south of the Long Island Rail Road station, voting is at Great Neck South High School.

 

Vote “yes” for the children! Vote “yes” for the future!
