Hello. My name is Joshua Lafazan, and I am a current senior at Syosset High School. On May 15th, I hope to become one of the youngest elected officials in New York State, as I am a candidate for the Syosset School Board of Education.
Many people have voiced concerns that if I am away at college I won’t be able to be a full-time board member. I would like to address those concerns by clarifying that I will be attending Nassau Community College this fall, and staying locally will allow me to fulfill all of my responsibilities on the School Board, as well as growing my Safe Ride Syosset program.www.SafeRideSyosset.org
The Syosset community needs someone with fresh ideas, enthusiasm, and an unwavering courage to challenge the status quo. That person is me.
My message for the Board of Education is simple; Improvements from within the administrative system, without burdening the taxpayers with additional expenses.
Aside from being the founder and C.E.O. of Safe Ride Syosset, a non-profit organization aimed at eradicating teenage drinking and driving in the Syosset community, I am also a nationally acclaimed congressional debater, as well as Senior Class president.
People in Syosset have a wealth of ideas to improve the School District. I would love to hear all of these ideas, and when elected, help bring some to fruition.
