On January 1, 2018, a new Suffolk County law goes into effect that charges a five-cent fee on disposable plastic and paper bags at a variety of retail stores. Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment from degradation. Those against are concerned it will hurt local businesses because the five-cent fee is nothing more than a tax. Do you support a Nassau County law imposing a five-cent fee on disposable plastic and paper bags?

With so many indictments and convictions of Long Island public officials, residents have become numb. Sadly, it’s all just business as usual, and we’ve come to accept it. Corrupt politicians hurt our communities in many ways, and it’s got to stop. That’s why I’m calling for Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano to resign.
