Governor Cuomo has proposed raising the minimum wage to $10.50 an hour throughout New York State, and $11.50 an hour in New York City. If enacted, New York State would have the highest minimum wage in the nation. Those in support feel low-wage workers need the boost to survive. Those against feel employers may leave New York, moving businesses and jobs to states with lower wages. Do you support Governor Cuomo's proposed raises to the minimum wage by the end of 2016?

At the corners of Elm Drive and Midwood Cross (neighborhood of Country Estates in East Hills) and Glen Cove rd. are bus stops on a hill that are extremely dangerous. The bus stops should be graded and made flat so in inclement weather individuals aren't at risk of slipping off the hill into on coming traffic.
