Taking Stock of Fire and Water Elections

Area residents will choose fire and water commissioners Tuesday. Is there a way to improve turnout?

On Tuesday, there will be elections for area local fire and water commissioners. 

Only one of the elections will be contested as incumbents will run unopposed in the North Massapequa Fire District and the Massapequa Water District. Polls will be open from 4 p.m. yo 9 p.m. in both of those districts.

In the Massapequa Fire District, polls will open from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. as Gary Persichetti faces Joseph Giordano for the commissioner seat vacated by Tom McCarthy. 

Turnout is traditionally light in these elections and we want to know what you think about that.  Do you have any ideas about generating more interest? Do you vote in these elections? If so, how often? What issues are important to you? let us know in the comment section below.
