Esteemed NTRA Members.
I’d like to thank those of you who made it out to the meeting last night. I know that some of our members I spoke with wanted to come but life gets in the way.
I heard from many that they enjoyed the conversational format and learned a lot about what’s going on in town.
I personally want to thank our Supervisor, Mike Rost, for taking the time to meet with us and for trying to respond to all of our questions and concerns. I thought he explained in detail the town budget, both inherited and current conditions. He also gave valuable information on Tuxedo Farms and the status of the Mulch Facility on Long Meadow Road. Below is a message I received from him today. As you can see, he’s responding to the concerns raised, especially those close to our members and neighbors on Benjamin Meadow Road. I’ll continue to communicate with Mike to get updates on these and other issues.
As I said last night, our organization is only as strong as our membership. If you have not re-joined, I hope you will do so ASAP. Please encourage your neighbors to join us. Having an active and consistent membership helps us be proactive around issues of special concern to Northern Tuxedo and strengthens our voice to get results.
We also exist to bring neighbors together for social events. We’re planning a summer social for Saturday, June 24th, in the afternoon, for members in good standing. If you’ve paid your 2017 dues you will be receiving an invitation soon. Hold the date!
For those of you who may have been disappointed with last night’s forum, my apologies.
As an organization, we do hope to represent the important issues that affect our area.
I tried to give equal voice to all who attended. If members have special concerns, when brought to the attention of the Executive Committee and membership, we consider the issues and together decide on how best to respond.
Special thanks to Claudia and Nader for always coming early and setting up, to Donna for registering members, for Bahar for managing our accounts, and to my wife Lynn for her support.
A special message to Kristy Apostolides, our President, who’s taking care of family. We’re thinking of you.
I look forward to seeing you June 24th the social!
