An Open Letter to the Residents Of Mineola

I wanted to say it is very humbling and flattering to comprehend the power of the voting booth. I am truly grateful to all the voters that gave my campaign a satisfying end. I want to thank the others that have come before me.

They all stepped up to be a positive inspiration for contributing to the common good of the village. They had a passion for what they believe in and worked hard for results. I hope I have honored those standards with my campaign.

One million people have seen the exhibit called “Women of the Spirit,” the history and story of America’s nuns. It opened in Cincinnati, moved to Dallas, then to the Smithsonian in Washington, then Ellis Island, where New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan officially cut the ribbon. It is now in Iowa and from there will go to Los Angeles, South Bend, Indiana and finally Sacramento, CA. When our daughter, Sister Annmarie and four other sisters begin to work on the project five years ago, they never dreamed that it would be so successful. The exhibit cost $4 million and these women raised that money, wrote the stories, created the graphics, researched the history from the first French sisters to arrive in New Orleans in 1700 until today. The stories tell of the work of these women through war and peace, always fighting for the poor and the desperate. Each exhibit stays about four months in each locale. It will visit nine places over a period of three years.

Updates from Albany

It has been a busy week in Albany. We continue the process of examining the state budget. These are difficult financial times but working together, we will ultimately succeed in cutting expenses and providing a framework for real long-term relief. In order for us to improve our state’s fiscal health, we need to provide residents with property tax relief, create jobs and control spending.

Mineola Resident Mourns Passing of Ed Solosky

It’s with sincere regrets that we all hear of the passing of one of the true gentleman of Mineola, Edward Solosky. Ed was a graduate of Corpus Christi school, and Chaminade high school and a devoted parishioner, parent, friend and teacher.

He was a teacher/athletic director at Bishop Kellenberg high school and his influence to the young people of Long Island can never truly be measured. After a short conversation with Ed, you knew where he stood, on the side of doing the right thing. He will be truly missed; the world is a bit better for having you here. To the Solosky family, know that you are in the thoughts and prayers of many.

Ability to Vote Is Crucial

Perhaps the most important part of our Democratic process is our citizens’ ability to vote and elect those who will make the crucial decisions for our local governments. On the local level, villages provide our residents with basic services, from emergency services, water and garbage collection to snow removal. As the former mayor for a village for eight years, I am fully aware of the effectiveness of our local villages.

 

Letter: Mineola Misled By the Anonymous

Friday, 04 March 2011 00:00

If you live in the Mineola School District you have likely received several mailings from anonymous groups calling themselves Citizens for XXXX. The return address is usually a UPS store in Garden City Park or Garden City. Since they are anonymous they feel free to spread lies and misinformation about the school district’s reconfiguration.

Letter: Retraction Letter Concerning My Previous Letter To Editor

Friday, 25 February 2011 00:00

In a letter dated Feb. 14, Mrs. Parrino and I wrote concerning issues relating to implementation of the default option currently being implemented by the Mineola Board of Education. Among the issues discussed was an allegation that Dr. Nagler had personally informed the seventh grade students that they were being assigned to the high school for the 2011-2012 school year. Parents had informed me that this was the case and I accordingly wrote that into last week’s letter. Mrs. Parrino relied on my input with respect to this allegation in signing the letter of Feb. 14 and is not responsible for authoring that portion of the letter.

Interesting Times in New York State

As I complete my second month serving the people of the 7th Senate District, I am continuously reminded that these are interesting times in New York State. There are discussions going on in Albany about subjects that are now getting the serious attention they deserve. Mandate relief, for example, is something we need to discuss in the coming months, especially in light of the likelihood that a 2 percent tax cap will be implemented.
