The NY Islanders recent move to Brooklyn has left a void of professional sports on Long Island. There is now discussion to build a new arena at Belmont Park to bring the Islanders home. Those in support feel it's a great location with access to public transportation. Those against say a new arena isn't the best use of the vacant land and the Coliseum in Hempstead should be retrofitted for professional hockey. Should a new arena for the NY Islanders be built at Belmont Park?

Since the Nassau County roads have been demolished by the public workers we pay, through our payment of taxes, the plow personnel should be held accountable for tearing up the roads and knocking down fences. The streets are full of potholes, then patched and re-patched by more public workers, and yet the roads are actually unsafe in many areas. I have ruined two tires hitting these potholes! Each tire cost $150.00! THE ROADS NEED RESURFACING, AND THERE SHOULD BE MONEY IN THE BUDGET TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE!

What do all say about this? Should there be money to fix our roadways? yes or no?

34 states and the District of Columbia permitted no-excuse early voting. Why not New York?

NIFA should insist on it as not much has changed in the transparency of the County contracting process since Skelos' conviction. It's still a mess.

Nearly the entire 3rd floor of the Hicksville High School is ESL. The staggering number of illegal alien children is bloating our school budget and driving our school taxes out of control. I'm retired on a fixed income and can't afford anymore increases. I pickup my grandchild from the school and she can even point them out. This free ride at our expense must stop NOW>
