Rockville Centre letters to the editor
Support school budget
To the Editor:
This Tuesday is voting day for our school budget. The members of our school PTAs have voted overwhelmingly to support the 2013-14 budget and we urge residents to get out and vote.
For the second year in a row, the members of our Board of Education and all the employees of the Rockville Centre School District have worked diligently to preserve the existing academic and extracurricular programming while maintaining a budget within the tax cap limits. In an era of sharply rising spending mandates without offsetting aid, this is a big accomplishment.
However, for this budget to pass, we need everyone to get out and vote! Polling takes place at South Side High School from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Please take a moment out of your day to vote “yes” and support the budget to:
- continue the academic excellence our community expects;
- preserve the programming that could be at risk if a contingency plan is in effect;
-invest in our community and our children.
Let’s work together as a community to support our children. Please join us in voting “yes” on Tuesday at South Side High School.

Rubino for Board of Education
To the Editor:
I am writing in support of Lynda Rubino for Rockville Centre Board of Education.
For 15 years, Lynda has shown her commitment to the community through tireless service on school boards, finance committees and various volunteer organizations. But just as importantly, Lynda has the solid financial background as a CPA needed to make a difference.
I am certain her fairness and expert background on accounting matters with school boards will be exactly what Rockville Centre now needs in order to balance the important task of educating our children with a real-world sense of fiscal responsibility.
