As a long time resident of the Village of Great Neck (47 years) I have seen much change in our village. On Tuesday, June 16, we will be casting our votes for candidates who can meet the challenges and experience of managing a successful village.
That is why I am voting for our incumbents, Mayor Ralph Kreitzman, Deputy Mayor and Trustee Mitchell Beckerman and Trustee Jeffrey Bass, all running on the Better Government Party for re-election. They all have proven their leadership and accomplishments during their terms in office.
Looking back I remember their steadfast policy on no parking meters and a friendlier place to shop with ample free parking, always about the residents. Also events such as the annual Village of Great Neck Crafts Fair, banners along Middle Neck Road welcoming people. Beautification projects such as plantings and maintenance of the center median on Middle Neck Road and working on making the business district more viable and walkable.
Don’t forget the services that are always present and sometimes taken for granted. Repaving of streets, snow removal, waste removal and new projects, finally planning for a new Village Hall that meets the needs of our community to mention a few.
I have worked with all of the incumbents and volunteered on many projects. In my opinion their exceptional professionalism and concerns and dedication is a benchmark for all villages to follow. I am proud to be a resident of this great village and urge you all to cast your vote for them.
