Letters to the Editor: East Rockaway, Lynbrook
(Page 4 of 6)
It means a great deal to be recognized for the positive work I do each and every day with Supervisor Kate Murray and Town Clerk Nasrin Ahmad — especially by our hometown newspaper. Working together, Team Murray continues to provide outstanding municipal services for pennies on the tax dollar.
We recently passed our third consecutive tax-cut budget. Less than nine cents on the tax dollar, and less than one cent for village residents, come to the town. Our sensible budget practices have also earned us a triple A bond rating from Wall Street, and we’ve also been presented with the ninth straight Excellence in Financial Reporting award from the independent and non-partisan Government Financial Officers Association. It’s an unmatched record of success.
Our team is committed to helping homeowners fully recover from Hurricane Sandy. The town has waived fees for those rebuilding after the storm, stayed in communication with residents in Sandy’s aftermath and has begun rebuilding shore barriers to help mitigate flooding.
I look forward to continuing to represent each and every neighbor with the same responsive and personalized constituent services that are the hallmark of my tenure on the Town Board.
