Readers Write: Vote Haagenson, Comer and Ficalora in Port


On Tuesday, March 19, the village of Baxter Estates will hold nonpartisan elections for mayor as well as two seats on the board of trustees. We hope our fellow Baxter Estates residents will join us in supporting Mayor Nora Haagenson, Trustee Charles Comer, and Trustee Christopher Ficalora for re-election.

Since moving to Baxter Estates, we have been impressed by how well the village is governed and, in particular, by the mayor and board’s commitment to environmental responsibility. Mayor Haagenson and the trustees are doing important work with the county and state to stabilize our beach, which is eroding badly, leading to frequent flooding on Shore Road.

They participate in a water conservation program with the Port Washington Water District, Residents Forward, and the Manhasset Bay Protection Committee. They have worked to keep our Village green by establishing a three-person Tree Commission that reviews applications for tree removal and a Tree Re-Leaf Fund to plant new trees. We feel blessed to live in a place of immense natural beauty and are grateful for our mayor’s and Trustees’ efforts to preserve and beautify our waterfront environment.

The polling place for all village residents is Village Hall, 315 Main St., and the polls are open from 12 to 9 p.m. Please take advantage of your right to participate in your village government, and get out and vote for Mayor Haagenson, Trustee Comer, and Trustee Ficalora.
