I am pleased to announce that I have appointed Rainer Burger as the newest Village Trustee. Rainer will serve in the seat vacated by the untimely and tragic loss of Trustee Don Barbieri. In March of 2019 an election will be held to fill Don’s unexpired term; until March 2021.
While Don’s presence in the board room and around New Hyde Park will never be replaced, the gap he left on the Village Board necessitated that we find someone who can take up the workload. I am very confident we found the right person to jump right in at a time when the demands on the village board has never been greater.
