We Need Change
In response to the column written last week about the open dialogue in our district, I disagree with the view of Audrey Pheffer as a unanimous winner. I was present during the open discussion held at Beach Channel High School, and believed Audrey vaguely discussed issues that continue to plague our district.
She had mentioned that Rockaway is improving or is "up and coming" with education. That of course is a misnomer. On top of that, what has she done about our transportation? Tell me, where is it? As a working, middle class mother, I still have many long hours commuting to work. How have things changed? If it's one thing I believe the young Mr. Stasi had a lot to inform us of the work that has been left undone. At least he offered specifics, which was refreshing.
It has been many years with Mrs. Pheffer along with the same issues over and over again. Mr. Stasi may look young, but he appears to have the capabilities and the wit to try and make a difference. We definitely need a change.
