ISSUE: Rubinstein ousted from School Board.

It would be easy to write off Tuesday's defeat of School Board incumbentMarty Rubinstein as a backlash against the firing of Superintendent FrankTill.

Till's firing was certainly unpopular. But you have to believe more thanthat one decision was enough for voters to oust Rubinstein in favor ofPhyllis Hope, a Piper High School guidance specialist who had lost toRubinstein four years ago and couldn't come close to matching his campaigncontributions.

Voters showed their displeasure with the board in the September primary --before the firing of Till -- when Jennifer Gottlieb defeated longtimeincumbent Darla Carter.

But after eight years on the Village Council, four as mayor, Oldakowski'sfingerprints are on the island, most notably on the projects to spruce upCrandon Boulevard and the construction of the Village Civic Center.

A real estate agent and retired accountant, Oldakowski -- who stepped downas mayor Thursday because of term limits -- moved to the Key from New Yorkin 1989 after his life partner Luis Mendoza suffered a stroke.

''I remember falling in love with the community,'' Oldakowski, 64, said.
