My First Vote for County Executive

As a senior in college, I often find myself asking this tough question: what comes next? I fear that living and working in Nassau County is quickly becoming an untenable option for college graduates and young professionals. Nearly four years into County Executive Ed Mangano's term, I see little economic development and few signs that Mangano and Nassau Republicans are committed to real progress. And let's not forget Mangano's many blunders--including the downgrade of police precincts across Nassau County, and the failure to retain our only professional sports team--the New York Islanders. In the Five Towns and the South Shore in general, vacant storefronts and decaying downtowns are the rule, not the exception.

Insights from a Board Member's Wife - District 15 School Board Elections

In the past I have had the privilege to write articles on behalf of my husband, Rabbi Nahum Marcus when he was running for a seat on the Lawrence School Board. However, I find myself in a very unique position this time around. Although Nahum is seeking re-election to retain his seat that he has held for the past 6 years, the dynamics that surround this election are quite different than in previous elections. Allow me to explain.
