The horrific mass murder in Las Vegas has re-opened the national debate on gun control. Those in support of a ban on assault weapons and semi-automatic rifles believe there is no good reason for citizens to own guns capable of mass murder. Those against want freedom to own any type of gun, and feel it's a violation of their 2nd Amendment rights. Would you support a nationwide law to ban the sale of assault weapons and semi-automatic rifles?

As everyone who is in the area knows, there are a lack of affordable housing options in Nassau County. Young people continue to move away and property tax rises. Do you believe that we should follow in the footsteps of areas such as Long Beach and build more condominiums, apartment complexes, and high rises? It would cause neighborhoods to become vibrant and the commercial "downtowns" would become great places to go. Near the LIRR stations would cause a lot of traveling and more young people to move into the area. This idea WILL create affordable housing.

It may be just an election ploy, but something has to be done about property taxes(see http://www.cutpropertytaxes.ny.gov/the-plan) I think adopting a plan more like NYC's where many more people share the burden is a more practical solution...

According to Newsday only four homeowners out of 4000 have gotten their money after Hurricane Sandy. Where are the local politicians who should be publicly advocating for their constituents?

With the proliferation of new condos – there is a tremendous need for regulation. Unfortunately being on a board is in essence a license to steal and there is no governmental oversight. There are Ombudsman Bills sitting in the Senate that are not able to be passed. Perhaps you might create a panel and ask for horror stories from owners. Lots of Republicans own condos and this would give you more votes. I would volunteer to help with this matter.
