Robert LaMorte (yes his name is misspelled) is the perfect choice for a new addition to our Board of Eduaction officers. He has my vote!!

Josephine Ciocia will be greatly missed as a member of the HH BOE..Josephine served two terms on the BOE and did so with honesty and integrity. Josephine had to make very tough decisions at times and whether people agreed with her or not she did what was right for the children of HH..Being a teacher herself she was able to bring that knowledge to the BOE as well and compare things from the district she worked for and so on. Josephine had no personal agenda on the HH BOE and that is something to be SO Proud of!!! She worked tirelessly for the people of HH. Many do not realize the hours that go into being a board member, there are many and it take precious time away from their family life as well. I wish Josephine along with her many friends much health and happiness and a good long rest after November!!! Josephine you will always be remembered for all you did for the community of HH..Best of luck to you always!
