Last year, the Great Neck school district had the steepest-ever budget jump of $7 million (from $234.4 million to $241.4 million) in its 206-year history bizarrely occurring during a pandemic shutdown.
This year, while the COVID is still present, the proposed jump is even steeper, $10.6 million (from $241.4 million to $252 million), more bizarrely, occurring while many property owners are subjected to sizable tax increases due to property re-assessments.
Michael Glickman is running for the board of education. He certainly is brilliant, he cares for the betterment of education at GNPS, he is conscientious about overtaxing the residents which leads to property value reduction and he has so much to offer to the board of education.
Choosing Michael Glickman for the board of Great Neck Public Schools is the sane and correct decision. He has all of his three children currently attending the Great Neck Public Schools.
Undoubtedly, Mr. Glickman would do his best to improve the quality of education in the schools while it is clear that he is intending to cut the waste and reduce the cost.
Voting other than Glickman reminds of this quote attributed to Einstein:
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.“
