Congratulations Ed and Sarah!

I am glad that the budget passed and wish Sarah and Ed the best in their term. I will be returning to the ballot next year, as the idea of a Director of Development is still a necessary one that is needed for Nanuet to move forward. Hopefully more people have gotten the message on it, and won't simply say that there are more cons than pros, or to poll one business who has not interest in coming to Nanuet to work with us.
