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?

Since the Nassau County roads have been demolished by the public workers we pay, through our payment of taxes, the plow personnel should be held accountable for tearing up the roads and knocking down fences. The streets are full of potholes, then patched and re-patched by more public workers, and yet the roads are actually unsafe in many areas. I have ruined two tires hitting these potholes! Each tire cost $150.00! THE ROADS NEED RESURFACING, AND THERE SHOULD BE MONEY IN THE BUDGET TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE!

What do all say about this? Should there be money to fix our roadways? yes or no?
