Each violation of the speed limit of 10 miles per hour or more will result in a $50 fine. The cameras will operate from an hour before school begins to an hour after school ends and a few are already operational for summer school. They will also be on 30 minutes before, during and after other school events. Do you believe speed cameras in Nassau County public school zones are more about public safety or revenue generation? Vote thumbs up if you believe it's about public safety or thumbs down if you think it's about revenue generation.

For the past three years, Nassau County's 7,000-plus employees have had a wage freeze imposed by NIFA (Nassau Interim Finance Authority). The wage freeze was instituted because, in recent years, Nassau County government has had a difficult time balancing its budget. Though Nassau County's sales tax revenue has increased as a result of economic activity due to the cleanup and rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy, county workers' wages have remained frozen. Do you believe the county executive should lift the wage freeze and honor previously negotiated contracts sometime in 2014?
