As long-term residents of Great Neck (48 years) we have seen many fine park commissioners but none have measured up to the dedication and accomplishments of long serving Commissioner Ruth Tamarin.
Our parks are the envy of the entire state and the ongoing maintenance, upgrading and innovation necessary to ensure their enjoyment by the entire park district is a monumental task.
Her involvement in the park commissions most notable accomplishments, in our views, are the expansion of Steppingstone Park by the acquisition of water front property, part of the George M. Cohan estate, the creating of an “all ability” play garden on the village green (unique on Long Island affording its use by the challenged as well as those more fortunate), the response to the devastating micro burst (aka tornado) that devastated the village green and creating a “lazy river” at Parkwood Pool.
We are thrilled that Ruth has decided to run for an additional term and urge all to back her candidacy.
