The Greater Farmingdale Community Land Trust, Inc. (GF CLT) would like to invite residents to attend our second annual GF CLT meeting, Tuesday, June 21, Farmingdale Village Hall at 7 p.m.
On behalf of all the residents of the Incorporated Village of Farmingdale, we wish to thank the Farmingdale-Bethpage Historical Society for all their efforts in designing and purchasing the Civil War Memorial that is the latest addition to our redesigned Village Green. It is a beautiful tribute to the men who answered our nation’s call 150 years ago.
The New York State Senate recently passed legislation sponsored by Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. that closes a loophole that allows someone arrested for DUI while driving with a conditional license to face only a traffic infraction.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many generous residents of the Sixth Senate District and beyond who donated items to my “Support Your Soldier” initiative. It was an honor to partner with Any Soldier to offer residents a convenient way to support our brave troops.

This weekend we celebrate one of America’s great holidays, Memorial Day. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U. S. soldiers who died while in the military service. It was first enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War and later extended to honor Americans who have died in all wars. For as long as all of us can remember, Farmingdale Village has celebrated Memorial Day with a parade down Main Street, organized by our Village Fire Department, followed by memorial services on our Village Green. This year is no exception but in addition to the parade and veterans services, we will be dedicating a new Civil War Memorial honoring those from Farmingdale who served in the American Civil War.
New York State’s buying power is equivalent to a Fortune 100 company. That’s according to Howard Glaser, the director of state operations who has been charged by Governor Cuomo with eliminating gross inefficiencies in our state government. His recent audit included findings showing Albany owning more than a million square feet of office space that sits vacant, nearly 2,000 vendors providing expensive duplicate office supplies and services, and over 400 toll-free numbers that have not been called in months, all at taxpayer expense. Our tax dollars should not go to fund agencies that are so bloated they cannot keep records of what they own or the products they purchase.
Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. recently voted in favor of legislation to raise penalties for drug dealers who sell drugs to children.
“Drug abuse destroys lives, which is why we must do everything we can to keep drugs out of children’s hands. Drug dealers who prey on kids need to face tougher penalties. This legislation will give prosecutors another tool to keep these drug dealers off the streets and away from our children,” said Senator Fuschillo.
