Rockland Officials Sound off on Presidential Race
Outside of Barr Middle School, a steady flow of residents came through to vote on Tuesday.
Nanuet Resident and Nanuet School Board Member Ed Dingman said two big issues that brought him out to the polls were the economy and national security.
“My civic duty is done. I came this morning around 9 a.m. and it was mobbed. There were so many people here to vote. I came back (at noon) and it’s still pretty busy,” he said. “It’s a good turnout; it’s an important election this year.”
“I came out to vote for the presidential and senatorial race,” said Mary Noberini, a Nanuet resident and a Nanuet Library Board member. “Women’s issues is a big influence on how I voted, as well as what will happen to the Supreme Court.”
Kile Alexis also came to Barr to cast his vote.
“It’s my given right as a citizen. The economy is one of the issues that’s important to me,” said the New City resident. “Education is also very important. We’re cutting back too much and reducing the future generations from achieving all that they can.”
