As an active and longtime member of this community, there are many reasons I feel confident supporting John Regan in his bid for Park District Commissioner.
John is a longtime resident with strong roots in the town. I have known him since his high school years, and since then he has always shown himself to be a person of character and integrity.
He has a long history of giving back to his community. He is generous with his time as evidenced by his active involvement in youth athletics and his participation in, and support of, various local charities.
With a career in finance John brings a strong set of analytical skills to the table. These should serve to help the Park District during these difficult economic times.
John has a solid understanding of the challenges that Manhasset currently faces. As a daily commuter John knows only too well that illegal commuter parking, traffic congestion in and around our main thoroughfares and viable parking solutions are important issues that must be effectively addressed. As a father and a coach, he also cares greatly about making and keeping our parks and green spaces the best they can be.
I believe that John Regan possesses the intelligence, common sense, and interpersonal skills necessary to work with others at developing successful ways to get the job done. I hope you will join me in voting for him on Dec. 13.
