On January 1, 2018, a new Suffolk County law will go into effect, charging a five-cent fee for plastic and paper carryout bags, at a variety of retail stores. Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment. Those against view it as a tax that will hurt local businesses. Would you support Nassau County imposing a five-cent fee on plastic and paper carryout bags?

I received the usual postcard describing my polling place, mentions primaries 9/13, 10/3 and general election 11/8. I an registered Republican but could not find anywhere on nassauvotes.com whether there is a republican contest for today's 9/13 primary. Took a call to BofE to learn "none". WHY DOESN'T NASSAU B of E WEBSITE LIST CANDIDATES AND BALLOTS TO BETTER INFORM PROSPECTIVE VOTERS?

Suffolk County has a twelve year limit. All levels of government involving elected officials should have the same.

It would make Nassau a more livable place and cut down on traffic.

Response to Belmont Gambling, I think it's disgraceful to be contemplating another money sucker from foolish people who can barely afford to live. It's mostly those who are on freebie welfare, food stamps etc that patronize such places. There is one at Aqueduct and should be more than enough to suck money from the folks/poor folks in our area.

Thanks

If you intermingle the party seating chart in the legislature you will foster greater communication. Hopefully it will lead to solutions that help better Nassau.

From a recent poll (see link below) 54% of LI'ers believe corruption is a "serious problem." Is it time for more serious investigation(s) by the state to investigate and remove politicians that are hurting the people and our economic welfare? http://longisland.news12.com/news/poll-liers-feel-gov-t-corruption-is-a-...

Nassau County should have a search engine for County Contracts on its website https://www.nassaucountyny.gov/ Residents should be able to search the database by a price range or by vendor for easy access to public information. AMH

I know that there was originally a plan to redevelop the area and make the blighted areas really nice but I don't know what happened. It would really be cool if Baldwin was redeveloped!

Feel free to research and comment!
