Legislator Ed Day Visits Local Elementary

The Habas family asked Day to talk to the second graders as part of Teacher Jaime Gillies' social studies curriculum. She was currently teaching them about how taxes pay for services

 

Thanks to a request from a parent, Legislator Ed Day visited Nanuet second graders earlier this week.

Miller Elementary Teacher Jaime Gillies has been teaching her second graders about how taxes pay for services in her social studies class. In search of guest speakers who are paid with our taxes, parent Don Habas reached out to Day.

"I felt Ed would be a great guest speaker because of his experience in law enforcement, and his current role as a County Legislator,” said Habas. “I know he enjoys being involved in the community."

Habas’ son Sean introduced Day to the class

"I spent some time in Ms. Gillies' 2nd grade class at George Miller Elementary School and spoke to the youngsters about the role of government in their lives,” said Day, who is currently running for county executive. “They were wonderfully attentive children and I hope they continue to ask the same tough questions when they are old enough to vote.”

Great Job Ed, just what Rockland needs a leader who actually cares about the people he serves!

Thanks Ed for providing something the children are sorely missing in school, an education about the government and its role.

Appreciate the opportunity with the children and the comments, and my wish is that these youngsters will actually engage in their government as they grow. We desperately need that involvement. And Sal M, if that was a play on words, it was a good one. Could not stop laughing.

Great way to engage our future leaders with a community minded leader of ours. Great expeirience for them and as always a job well done by Legislator Day.
