Weigh in on Voting in School Elections

How often do you participate?

This is an important week for voters following the Massapequa school elections.

Voters will decide who will occupy the two seats available on the school board when they go to the polls on May 15.

They will also decide whether or not to approve the propsed budget.

On Wednesday, the Massapequa PTA held a "Meet the Candidates" night, while the school board will hold their annual budget hearing on Thursday night.

Both events provide voters with information to make informed choices.

But we want to know if you've been engaged.  Are you planning to vote? What's motivating your decision?

Take our poll below and weigh in with your comments.

@Concerned Citizen: Lest there be any doubt, my Patch account name is my name. If I'm going to "self-promote" - or make any public commentary - I'll do it openly. I don't hide behind a pseudonym. With that, I would like to echo the comment from "Mass Parent": "If you want a solid board with good abilities and credentials, a board who is not afraid to ask questions and ensure they get the answers - Marsh and Sheffield are your candidates!"

I am NOT Mr. Marsh or Mrs. Sheffield and I am NOT an affluent Massapequa household. I am a struggling taxpayer who is tired of the same old lack of information and answer to our questions we have had since Ms. Fisher has been on the board. We need a board who actually reads the information given to them and ask questions instead of agreeing with everything Sulc says and wants. Mr. bennett showed us what this board can be. He stood up for the children when Ms. Fischer and the rest did what they usually do....NOTHING! If Mr. Marsh and Mrs. Sheffield bring half of what Mr. Bennett has shown so far Massapequa will be better for it.

. If Roosevelt had our schools scores than I would say it was more the school performance.
