Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
On Tuesday, residents of Rockville Centre will have a chance to make their voices heard by electing two village trustees and a village justice. This decision should not be taken lightly, and I advise all voters to take a close look at the past four years before coming to an informed decision.
In my eyes, the right choice for village trustee is clear. In fact, it is clearer than it’s been in quite some time. Trustee Ed Oppenheimer has earned our vote for re-election to a second term on the village board.
Ed has consistently demonstrated that he is a voice for all of Rockville Centre. At the end of the day, he is not afraid to ask the tough questions that need to be asked. His independence, knowledge and meaningful service to the village, not only over the past four years but also over the past 30-plus, has helped make Rockville Centre the outstanding community it is today.
I know Ed to be a kind, passionate and dedicated public servant. Whether it’s through his work as a village trustee, volunteer firefighter or critical-care EMT, Ed has proven that he wants the absolute best for this village and all its residents. Ed’s proven leadership and experience has made him an asset to our community. Please join me in re-electing Trustee Ed Oppenheimer to the village board on Tuesday.
Vote for Glynn and Grillo
To the Editor:
I cannot believe it has been six years since I left office as your mayor. My commitment to our village remains steadfast as I watch my son, Fran, put forth initiatives that keep Rockville Centre a wonderful place to live and raise a family.
However, as we all know, no one can do this alone. He needs dedicated, active, independent residents with foresight to continue moving our community in the right direction.
I have watched Kevin Glynn over the last four years. He has been an active participant in all things positive for Rockville Centre. I believe Kevin has remained true to his fiscally conservative viewpoints while working hard to achieve consensus decisions with his peers on the board.
Emilio Grillo is a highly qualified, active resident who will bring a new perspective to the existing board.
