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?

I've had enough living in Nassau County. Look around the country and see the progressive neighborhoods all across this country, and you'll see that Nassau County is a disgrace. That's why on Thursday, I'm packing up and heading west.
Our police make arbitrary stops on the road and they make law abiding people weary of them. I apparently went 40 on a 30 mph road just going with the flow of traffic and was pulled over. My respect for the over paid cops has gone down so much. They should be ashamed of themselves. Also, the LIRR employees get tremendous pay raises while they steal copper and are very corrupt.
I'm 24 years old, and I hope that when I come back in 20 years, Long Island will have a network of light rails and alternative transportation, and the police will not be so nasty and we give more to the fire departments who rely on volunteers.
The amount of money tossed around in Nassau County and Long Island in general makes me sick. Get off your high horse and do something radical to change Long Island because thousands of kids are leaving Long Island for good. See you in 20 years...

We have leased Dumpster

We have leased Dumpster Rental Organization many times now as well as the services are usually first class. Dumpster Rental is definitely valuable and requests the right questions to be certain I become the best dumpster for the project. I would recommend this 20 yard dumpster company atlanta for excellent buyer stability and repair.

To be a man, we must be open-minded, tolerant, and be able to accept everything given by fate calmly. A broad-minded person will not take anything to heart and will accept all the arrangements of fate. Not to fight, but not to wronged themselves. The more generous you are in your life, the less temperamental you are, and good luck will come to you. The more stingy you are, the more calculating you are, the more often you will get nothing.

I love it here and am willing

I love it here and am willing to fight for it. While Nassau has its issues it is a wonderful place and we need to work together to make it better. That is the reason I created this website! AMH

Thank you

Thank you for fighting for Nassau County! Young people, as well as older people want to be able to walk to places and have a downtown, be trendy and have affordable housing. I really urge you to try something radical. There is a lot of push back to any change, but I guarantee that if you got recent college graduates and the seniors on long island, from all races and economic classes, they would both say that its very hard to get around long island.

Thank you for fighting for Nassau. If the conditions in Nassau were better, I would stay. But I can't afford it and need a good paying job, as well as an affordable way to live.
