This Struggle Is A Foretaste Of Things To Come


The red PhoneThe phones at Elmont Online have not stopped ringing since passage of the Elmont School Budget.  Some residents like Tudor Manor Civic Association President and community leader Joyce Stowe said “I am sending this message of Congrats to the people of Elmont in pushing through this vote--you included [Aubrey Phillips]!  This struggle is a foretaste of things to come!”

Other community leaders like Patrick Nicolosi of the East End Civic Association expressed some bewilderment.  In a Facebook post Mr. Nicolosi said “Of all the 124 school districts Elmont had the highest tax increase. It's not a great day for Elmont it's a sad day for those who can't afford the burden. We are still losing our young educated students to lower taxing states.

Vote Yes On June 19


pmeagwaliDear Community Members;

I am writing this letter for two very important reasons. First, thank you for reelecting me to the Elmont School Board. It is an honor and privilege to serve our community.

Secondly, as a resident and parent of children in the Elmont School District, I respectfully urge you vote "yes" to pass the Elmont School budget scheduled for a revote on June 19, 2012.

Much was made of the fact that the tax rate exceeded the state mandated Tax Cap of 2%. But what pleased me most was the majority community support of the modest 2.8% increase. The voting Elmont community supported our schools and a budget which the Board and Superintendent worked very hard to ensure was both educationally and fiscally sound.

What a Demockery - EUFSD Budget Fails


Elmont votes to affirm Public Education but Albany Demockery smuthers the will of the voting community.

Last Friday (May 11) I received a call from an Elmont Memorial High School parent asking me to support the school by purchasing plants sold by the PTSA.  I did but with public education funding targeted for cuts by “friendly” Albany Republicans can Elmont parents make up the revenue short falls with bake sales and art auctions?

So, how many PTSA Bake Sales will make up the short fall?  How many Martins 3-on-3 Basketballs Tournaments photos will fill the funding gap?  How many Programs like District Wide Music Festival, Jazz Masters, Model UN and Operation Success are in danger?  Will the Elmont Soccer Club, GYO, Elmont Cardinals have to pay for the use of fields and classrooms?

Then there is sequestration - “Because Congress failed to identify the $1.2 trillion in budgetary savings” mandatory automatic cuts to the federal budget will take effect on January 2, 2013.  According to a National PTA memo “…sequestration would devastate state and local budgets, halting delivery of vital educational services to our most in-need students.

In Elmont almost 57% (1226 of 2163) of the voting community affirmed their deep and sacrificial commitment to funding public education yet, the budget failed.  Parents, school administrators and true public school advocates are scratching their heads this morning.  And it is not over, sequestration in on the horizon and that could lead to further mid-year cuts.

Today, we are talking to people about sustainable economic development, because we think it's important to show support for key issues that affect our community - like places in the Elmont for young professionals to live, shop and be entertained; like keeping families closer together and rebuilding the economic and social pillars of the community.
