In New York State, all Legislators (Assemblymen and Senators alike) receive the same salary of $79,500, because these elected positions are viewed as part-time. As a result, many NYS Legislators look for outside income. Critics believe this sets the stage for graft, and recommend reframing these positions as full-time, with a respective increase in compensation, and a limit on outside income. Would you support changing elected NYS officials to full-time, with increased compensation and a cap on outside income?

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.
