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?

Source Mall is dead, Roosevelt Field Mall is becoming a giant food court and these mental midgets built another mall on Old Country Road called "The Gallery", where all the stores that left the Source And The Field went to! Who's on the county planning board, kindergardeners? IF we DO NOT REBUILD The COLISEUM this whole county is going down the tubes and we'll have 3 empty malls! Fire Murray Today!



Nassau County does not have a coehisive form of government. What we have is an olde English style of Theftdome. The Snaitation districts answer to no one and are run by "families", the schools are run by Superintendants who rule with iron fists and threats, and you have Towns and Villages who are run by dictators who could care less about teh COunty as a whole. What does the County Executive do? Who is he incharge of besides the Police Department. Certainly not LIPA or any of teh the Theftdomes. NASSAU COUNTY IS A JOKE!!!!

Not a fan of Kate Murray

Not a fan of Kate Murray however and we need to build the coliseum but you have to present your ideas in a more positive light.

FYI Reddog, The Islanders

FYI Reddog, The Islanders moved to Brooklyn and the Coliseum is now useless. Thanks for your polite support.

Red Dog, you're absolutely right. If I was on some "committee" to "investigate" the possible difficulties in order to prepare to write a presentation to submit a petition to gain permission to present my findings to the committee that determines whether or not I can present this at the next town meeting...see where I'm going with this? That is a prime example of how your local politicians operate and why you're being taxed out the wazoo to pay for this. I own a cab company and because of one security guard in Roosevelt Field us cabbys are being fined $250 for picking up passengers in the mall. The mall is our bread and butter and unless we "86" Kate this whole area is going to die out because there's absolutely no reason for new people to come to Nassau County. Look up the demographics of Nassau County and you'll find that the majority of inhabitants are over 50 and under 25 years old. The ones under 25 live with Mom & Dad over 50. So Kates "Bedroom Community" floats because the majority of homeowners are already retired and the younger ones can't afford they're own home and don't vote. Those that are between 25 & 50 left a long time ago for greener pastures. My house in Levittown is assessed at $400,000+, probably not for long, but in Florida I can buy a mini manshion/with a built-in pool and a boat deck. Go figure. I built a business here and if the coliseum DOES NOT get rebuilt soon, I'm outta here as well. I'm 56. So positively speaking I'm trying to light a fire under your ass! Later, Taxi Jack.
