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?

Future buyers, future sellers on Long Island.
Wouldn't it be great if there were safe areas to conduct legitimate trades from Craigslist, Facebook and other apps like letgo. Imagine an open, brightly lit lobby with surveillance cameras and more police officers than you can count -- all watching you as you conduct your transaction. Let's add locations in Nassau County to the SafeTrade Stations national list! http://www.safetradestations.com/

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.

Take down all the red light cameras in Nassau, and take all the surcharges off all tickets. How many times do you have to pay for the same ticket.
