To the Editor:
Who is Joanna Commander? If you read her bio you know that she is, among other things, a retired Athletic Director and member of our community. She is also, a strong –minded person with her own thoughts and opinions. Not easily influenced by others, Joanna will come to decisions based on fact and experience. She brings a wealth of knowledge of the inner workings of a school district having served in a district herself in multiple capacities, for many years. She also knows how to be a compassionate member of a community, extending herself by being a member of the Athletics Booster Club as well as a volunteer at the Inn in Glen Cove.
We feel that Joanna is in the unique position of appreciating the value of an excellent education for children, while also appreciating the impact rising taxes can have on our neighbors with a fixed income. Therefore, we believe Joanna will find the balance between the two and in that manner serve all of the members of the community well.
Joanna is an intelligent, fair, honest, hardworking person who will work tirelessly for this district and all of the members of our community.
Robyn and Tony Cartagine
