As a long time resident of Hicksville, I find it hard to believe that our elected officials would vote to split Hicksville up into three county legislative districts. It seems now that our elected officials are trying to destroy our town. The voice of Hicksville has now been muted by this vote.
I voted for our elected official because I thought that they would have the best interest of the people and the town of Hicksville in mind when they voted. I can only surmise that other interests where more important than Hicksville and the people who elected you.
The people of Hicksville need to start questioning our officials to see where they stand. I sent an email to them in June 2011 about the vote to use money that was allocated from the federal government for Hicksville but was used for Glen Head. (Newsday “Hicksville street revamp funds shift to Glen Head,” June 7, 2011).
I was told Hicksville was not ready for it. They told me that they would be allocating money for downtown Hicksville soon. I am still waiting but now to whom will I have to talk to being that that part of Hicksville is now not part of my Hicksville?
