One of the things I’ve always admired about her is the enormous energy she brings to school district issues. Maintaining an excellent public school education for Rockville Centre students while minimizing residents’ tax levy is something she is truly passionate about. I hope you’ll join me in giving Mayda one of your two votes for school board trustee next Tuesday.
Vote for Spaulding
To The Editor:
I write to express my support for Gregg Spaulding for trustee on the Rockville Centre Board of Education. I have had the pleasure of knowing Gregg since we both attended South Side High School. I have known him in many capacities. He has served this village and school district in many ways over the years. He is a member of the Rockville Centre Fire Department and has been an active member of the South Hempstead PAL.
Gregg brings a great deal of experience and know-how to all that he does. As a member of the Fire Department, he served on many committees and held positions in his company. While registering his children for PAL, he learned there was a need for coaches, and gave up many of his Friday nights to take an active roll in Sports Night. He continued to be active in PAL even after his children aged out of the program.
Gregg and I have had many conversations on the state of education in New York, and especially in Rockville Centre. He is very well versed in the regulations associated with education. And more important, he is well versed on the budget and its many demands. So much of every school budget is based on mandates by the state. As a member of the Board of Ed, Gregg has helped to develop ways to address those mandates while ensuring that the highest qualities associated with education in Rockville Centre are maintained.
We are both a product of this district and take a great deal of pride in seeing its accomplishments. Rarely have I been to a function in the district and not seen Gregg. He takes pride in being a parent of Rockville Centre students and in being a member of the Board of Education.
