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?

Voter turnouts for local and specialized district elections (like park districts, library boards, school board and budget, water districts etc) are dismally low. All elections should take place on election day ( 1st Tues. in Nov.) to increase voter participation. This idea seems to have universal agreement.
I realize that this might not be so simple, but any legal hurdles that stand in the way, should be confronted. Thanks
