Letters to the Editor
(Page 3 of 5)

We have a trustee, Ed Oppenheimer, who has repeated that life-saving rescue action more than 15,000 times in his nearly 35 years as an EMT. That is like having responded to more than 60 percent of the residents of our village.

This type of concern and talent, as village trustee, is what Ed offers to us all. He is the only one who has consistently voted against exorbitant tax increases in these financially challenging times. He questions how every dollar is allocated and spent without concern for political consequences from his fellow trustees. I know that all who serve on the board do so with good intentions. However, I sincerely ask your support in electing “Good Ed” as our village trustee on Tuesday.

Support Grillo and Glynn

To the Editor:

As a past president of the Rockville Centre Concerned Citizens, I am proud to support the Common Sense candidates, Trustee Kevin Glynn, Emilio Grillo and Justice Kevin McDonough, for election on Tuesday.

Over the past four years, I have seen Trustee Glynn show a willingness to work with his fellow village board members to provide common-sense, reasoned leadership and reform, no matter what their party affiliation. After the years of paralysis of our village administration because of local politicians engaging in political warfare, Trustee Glynn’s reasonable, responsible and common-sense leadership has been a great relief to so many in Rockville Centre!

The Concerned Citizens Party is a once noble organization that produced many of Rockville Centre’s past great leaders, and I was horrified to see how low the campaign of Ed Oppenheimer sank with the hateful and misleading Letter to the Editor, “Support Oppenheimer,” last week.

I ask all of my fellow concerned citizens to reject that sort of negative, vitriolic politicking of the past and join me in supporting the positive and responsible campaign of the Common Sense ticket of Kevin Glynn, Emilio Grillo and Kevin McDonough!

Please vote Row B on Tuesday!
