It has been an honor to serve you as a commissioner at the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District over the past 16 years.
It is with great gratitude to all of my fellow GNWPCD residents that I am announcing my retirement from the board of commissioners. Your support during my tenure has been truly inspiring.
Working alongside my other committed Commissioners and our dedicated staff, I am proud of the work we have accomplished to become the most technologically advanced and ecologically friendly wastewater treatment district in the entire state.
Starting with the rebuilding of the treatment facility from 2008 to 2012 to our latest project, that being Nassau County’s only Grease Receiving Station, and all the projects in between, it has been an exciting and satisfying time for me.
But the time comes to pass the torch to the next generation of leadership to carry on the mission. To that end, I would like to make you aware of an individual I believe can continue to achieve the District’s goals in cooperation with my fellow Commissioners.
I met Mark Berger, a resident of Thomaston, after he expressed an interest in the district from a tour he took over a year ago.
He has invested his time attending meetings at the district, learning about both the technical and the business sides of our operation.
He has spent time with myself and my co-commissioners to learn what our responsibilities are and has made a very favorable impression on them as well.
As an attorney, Mark would bring a rather unique skill set to the district that would fit well with the talents of my co-commissioners. I believe that his energy and drive, combined with a demonstrated commitment to public service in his practice of law, will help make him an outstanding Commissioner who will serve the residents of the district with enthusiasm and dedication.
I hope you will join me on Dec. 12 to help pass the torch and vote for Mark Berger for commissioner at the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District.
