Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment. Those against view it as a tax that will hurt local businesses.

If you live in Island Park, Oceanside, Long Beach, Rockville Centre, and there is an emergency or a snow storm your in trouble. There is only one lane out of these towns and they have parking on them. Snow plows can't do there job, so the roads are plowed like crap. We need no parking on any emergency route and those roads clean so you can lick them.

You buy a ticket to see a show and when you get there they want to charge you $4O.OO to park. They don't tell you that on your ticket, and there is no place else to park. You are being RIPPED OFF.

Police salaries and pensions are the highest in the country. Your tax money is paying for them. The police union is corrupt and one sided. Most police retire with $100,000. to $200,000. thousand dollars a year for the rest of there life with benefits even if they live to 100. Many are offered a second county job with another pension. If they screw up on there job they don't get fired they get a paid vacation, because there corrupt union backs them. We must fix this and save the tax payers millions.

Raise the benefits for all sanitation workers. They work harder then any one in Nassau. They breath more toxic air in one day then the men at 911 did in six months. Look how much money those guys made.

Raise the budget for the mentally ill. There is no real help in Nassau. It will reduce crime by 100%. The doctors will tell you there funding is a joke. It will also take pressure off our court .
