In an unprecedented number of votes, so many that two voting machines had to be closed due to capacity, the Herricks school community voted to approve the budget. The final vote, including absentee ballots, is as follows:

The vote was held from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Herricks Community Center, 999 Herricks Road, New Hyde Park.
The New Hyde Park Order Sons of Italy Lodge No. 2206 held its 42nd Annual Awards Night at Marcus Christ Hall, on the grounds of the New Hyde Park Village hall.

It’s rare to see the small cafeteria of Center St. school filled for a June meeting of the Herricks Board of Education. Following the one-vote defeat of the May 18 budget vote, it was easy to see why residents turned out last Thursday night to hear the latest news regarding what the board had planned for the revote which is less than five days away.

Having attended the meeting and being a resident very near the property under discussion, I find the issues and opposing points of view very interesting but also very self-serving.
Whoever has said, “Oh, my one vote doesn’t count, ” was proven very wrong when the Herricks School Budget was defeated on May 18 by just one vote.
As the numbers were tabulated from one voting machine to the next it was fairly obvious that the number of positive votes were just not there. Therefore, everyone relied on the absentee ballots to put them on the plus side, but after all was said and done, it was just one absentee vote of no that defeated the budget.
