Shame on thieves
To the Editor:
What a negative indictment of our present culture when stealing becomes a career choice.
Tuesday, Oct. 15, during the evening hours, four planters were stolen from my front lawn.
I’m here to help
To the Editor:
Although I do not yet represent the Rockville Centre community until January, a letter in the Oct. 10-16 Herald from Mr. Richard Skolnik about a dangerous intersection on a county roadway got my attention (“county won’t help”).
As a county legislator, I take my responsibilities very seriously — especially regarding matters of safety — and appreciate when I hear from neighbors. It’s one of my top priorities to improve the county’s infrastructure, but for whatever reason, the matter went unaddressed by my predecessor.
To correct this serious public hazard, I took quick action and directed the County Department of Public Works to the area. The concern Mr. Skolnik shared was rectified overnight.
Good government that provides quality services to neighbors is what I strive for each and every day; it helps improve and sustain our great quality of life. The feedback I receive indicated that I’ve been very successful in this regard. If I can be of assistance to any Rockville Centre resident, their family or neighbors, please do not hesitate to contact me. I’d be happy to help. Feel free to call my office anytime at (516) 571-6207 or reach me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your concerns, offer feedback or share your input.
