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 recently went to a kids bday party at the Beach Shack in Copaigue, it was such a great concept. A private company running a surf and sun themed concession at a nice small beach park, they ahd a bar, servers, lie band etc. There were maybe 150-200 people mainly families and baby-boomers hanging out eating drinking and dancing. The park had a sprinkler/water park area and playground for the kids too. Everyone in attendance agreed we need these in Nassau as well. Bar Bach would be a fantastic spot for a similar thing. I am seeing more extended families living on Long Island composed of a successful young couple, their young kids and the grand parents (the boomers) and this family unit has a good amount of disposable income for just this sort of multi-generational fun. Let's wake up Nassau and its Townships and meet this need. Who's with me?
