The only taxing entity that stayed under the two percent cap within driving distance is the New City Library. The current budget increase is ZERO. Again, that is a 0% increase. I wish the rest of the State was as dysfunctional. Vote for Agin Anthony, Ralph Sabatini, and Suresh Arya to continue this.

Agin Anthony is 19 years old and is currently working on getting his first degree. He has no experience in anything yet so I fail to see why he should be elected for trustee. There are still plenty of other activities for someone his age to do.

Lilly: I have to agree - given the past history of this board as I outlined in my article one needs three people of proven expertise to return sanity to its operations. I wish Agin Anthony well but this is not the time to get on the job training in bar-room brawling. Sabatini, Sasson and Zuckerberg are seasoned professionals who understand courtesy must come before coercion when working together on a board towards a common goal. The danger here is that soon-to-be ex-President Ninan may still think he can run the board through surrogates. Napoleonic complexes can be avoided by the election of the independent-minded Sabatini, Sasson and Zuckerberg.
