I told the people running the election when I went in to vote.

What's disappointing is that people would stoop so low as to anonymously make false accusations just because they don't like the results of the election. If "CG" and "Concerned Resident" really want an investigation, I suggest they come forward with their real names and identify what poll worker would tell them a complete lie about a candidate being kicked out of the gym three times. And while they are at it, perhaps CG could educate himself/herself about the district they've been voting in for 14 years. Malverne does not have three Superintendents. It has one Superintendent, a Deputy Superintendent who handles all matters concerning curriculum and an Assistant Superintendent that manages the physical facilities. The US doesn't have two Presidents either just because the word "President" appears in Joe Biden's job title. Now can we stop with the silliness and discuss real issues? Administrative costs are a legitimate issue but let's discuss it seriously without the "three superintendents" spin.

Many people went to Facebook with comments about people promoting themselves outside the school. If there was foul play maybe it should be looked into. I myself did not see this I was there at 7:30am, I believe this all happened at night.

Hey look, I know none of these candidates personally and hold no grudges against any of them, I was actually going to vote for one of the candidates I saw standing outside until I saw what they were doing and realized they were cheaters, If you want to get nit-picky about the Superintendent, of course there are assistants, DUHHHH. But are they needed? Why can't they have a head Maintenance guy making $60,000 instead of a building Superintendent? As far as the Asst. Superintendent, if the head guy can't handle 4 buildings on his own he's incompetent. Shouldn't the Head Supt. just have meetings with the Principals? How often do these guys visit the schools? For their salaries and being there is 3 of them, one of them should be dropping by one school per day., at least. It would be interesting to know how often these over-payed clowns step foot in the actual schools.

If you follow the Malverne school district news on a regular basis you are aware that the board of education has recently become an agenda of its own, not leaving much room for any other business. Its conduct has been divisive, obscure, and poisonous. The current school board is a burden and embarrassment to the school district residents. If you are ready to dedicate some time to prepare for the upcoming May 2013 school budget and school board member elections and to change the course, please join others by contacting me at vevajanka@hotmail.com
