Supporting Chiachiere for school board


To the Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to endorse Dr. Frank Chiachiere for re-election to the Valley Stream District 13 school board. I have known Frank for more than 10 years. He has been an asset to the board, the community and the school system.

He is a man that is well respected in our Valley Stream community. Frank is always approachable and is willing to listen to the parents’ concerns. He has our children’s education as his top priority. Frank exemplifies honesty, fairness and thoughtfulness in his life as well as his dedication to the board. Frank will continue to use those qualities to create a better balance between academics and extracurricular activities. We need Frank to remain on the board, and with your vote this will happen.

To the Editor:

Dr. Frank Chiachiere is being challenged for his seat on the Valley Stream District 13 school board. One has to wonder why. I served with Frank Chichiere on that board for several years and know that this is a man that is, and has always been, dedicated to the welfare of all the children in our district.

He believes that the board serves the community best when it serves the children best with an education that helps them be the best they can. A board member, such as Frank Chiachiere, should be allowed to continue to serve on the District 13 board. His continued service enhances every child’s opportunity for a better education and a better future.
