I agree with the Newsday editorial board's call for an in-depth look at the financial relationship between the Elmont school district and district consultant Thomas Galante ["Probe consultant to school district," Editorial, Aug. 5].

We need to get this matter behind us, and I am confident that after the relationship is put under a microscope, we will see there is nothing inappropriate in Galante's activities. As for the accusations of his wrongful spending at the Queens Library, I cannot say.
