The following is an open letter addressed to residents of the Seaford School District from Lorraine DeVita
To the editor:
For many years and more recently brought to light with the Seaford Avenue School sale, this district has an ISSUE with full and complete notification to all its residents. Inconsistency is the name of the game it seems. Therefore out of pure frustration and the need to provide a pro active solution to stop the excuses, I have assigned myself the task of insuring this district has a complete and thorough list of all registered voters to insure full and complete notification to all residents of the Seaford School district.
This morning I simply picked up the phone and contacted the Board of Elections. They have a LIST! Which it appears they can send to ANY school district upon that district's request and they will send it to them on a CD. This List is by zip code.
So of course there would be some weeding out to do of the addresses North of Jerusalem. As well those Seaford residents with 11793 zips would need to be subsequently added.
Conceivably this should not be a Herculean task, however the school district MUST request list from the Board of Elections I am not allowed to do so. But it appears most all of the other school districts do this annually to keep their records current.
I will be emailing Seaford Superintendent Brian Conboy with the earth shattering information as well I am enlisting your help.
In order to facilitate information being dispersed in a more timely fashion it would be of great assistance if every resident did the following IMMEDIATELY: Call or emial Mr Conboy's office at 516-592-4002 or Bconboy@mail.seaford.k12.ny.us. You can also contact District Clerk Carmen Ouellette at 592-4013. Provide them with the following information:
- Your Name Your Address
- Your Telelphone number
- Your Email address
Also ask to be placed on the ROBO call list as well as the districts email notification/distribution list, as well please VERIFY they have your proper mailing address.
If everyone could do this ASAP I would greatly appreciate it, as important information will soon be coming regarding the Seaford Avenue School sale. We need everyone to be informed. Also as we are all aware not everyone reads or has access to the Patch or even email so please if EACH of you could contact as many people as possible, especially those that you know who do not receive information and share this with them, it would then hopefully spread and everyone will have the opportunity to be an informed voter.
I will also draft a letter to the district and the board of education to have them contact the Board of elections. Be assured I WILL follow up to insure they have done so. I am tired of hearing excuses. Here's My PRO ACTIVE solution so please help me in making it happen. Let's not give anyone an excuse for not informing the ENTIRE community, nor an excuse for being uninformed. An informed Seaford makes informed decisions!
If you have any questions or further suggestions to remedy this abysmal situation please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Thank you.
