From the Moreland Commission website: "On July 2, 2013, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo appointed the 'Commission to Investigate Public Corruption' under the Moreland Act and Executive Law Section 63(8) to probe systemic corruption and the appearance of such corruption in state government, political campaigns and elections in New York State." Do you believe the Moreland Commission did an effective job in investigating public corruption in NYS government?

When you tell people where you are from you say Long Island not Nassau or Suffolk. If political leadership truly want efficient government what better way is there then to create Long Island County? There are economies of scale and Long Island County would become a dominant force in Albany to help our community get its fair share.

I think we should prohibit the voting using an anonymously profile and only allow those with login accounts as this is a very good forum and is being hijacked by some whose interests do not lie with the majority of honest taxpaying citizens.

The larger the project the cheaper the cost per mile. Cooperative bids and/or sharing village Department of Public Works Employees, especially with the smaller villages, will save the taxpayers money.

Nassau is the only county in the NY Metro area that is close to Manhattan and doesn't have a ferry system. Port Washington to the east side of mid-town Manhattan would take 35 minutes. Glen Cove to the same location would take 40 minutes. A connection stop at LaGuardia would take additional cars off the road and make for an easy commute.

The lost sales tax revenue from losing the Islanders isn't coming back. If Nassau was going to use speed zone cameras at least they could have been used to keep the Islanders from leaving!
