Local School Boards Host Pep Rally For Minor League Soccer Team … Community Underwhelmed!

watching video

ELMONT NY - In what might be described as a pep rally, administrators and board members from the Elmont, Floral Park and Sewanhaka School districts, hosted a “forum” for the New York Cosmos at Sewanhaka High School’s auditorium on Tulip Avenue in Floral Park.  Laura Feroni, President of the Floral Park School District Board of Education, corrected the record by noting, "The Floral Park-Bellerose Board of Education has not endorsed the Cosmos Project ... we [the board] agreed to co-host the forum to get information out to the public."  Elmont School Board President, Michael Jaime, however, has publicly proclaimed his support for the New York Cosmos plan. 

Keen observers were puzzled by the choice of host venue for the “informational forum,” questioning why this meeting was held at Sewanhaka High School, and not somewhere closer to Belmont Park.  One attendee asked, “Why [are we meeting] so far away from the proposed stadium site?”  A gentleman who lives on Locustwood Avenue  said, “…there are venues closer … that would have permitted more of the residents who would live in the shadow, noise and other fallout from the proposed soccer stadium to attend.

tee shirt distributionRally attendees were greeted by Republican employees of the recently arrested Senator Skelos and his protégé, Senator Jack Martins.  The employees were collecting the names of attendees, and distributing green Cosmos tee shirts with catchy hash tags emblazoned on them.
