As a student I have seen first hand how my school functioned under a budget crisis. Activities and extracurricular classes were being cut just as well as teachers. Knowing that the budget may not have passed, many sport teams would’ve been cut and personally, I would’ve been devastated if I wasn’t able to play field hockey in the up coming fall season. Having these extra curricular activities, like sports, clubs, and classes have brought new friendships and experiences, not just for me as well as my peers. Having the opportunity to be a part of a team or club is just as important as sitting in a classroom; it gives students something to look forward to outside of a school that they aren’t able to practice while learning in a classroom. To prevent another budget dilemma please vote for Adam Haber as Nassau County Executive in the Democratic Primary on September 10th.
