Letter: Schmitt: No Tax Hike on the Agenda

Friday, 06 April 2012 00:00

I read your recent article covering Nassau County Executive Edward I. Mangano’s State of the County address with great interest (“Mangano Warns of 13 Percent Tax Jump,” Anton Newspapers, March 22 and 23), but I fear your story missed the point – by a longshot.

The county executive did not threaten a 13 percent property tax increase; in fact, he never even uttered the words. Further, setting the legislative agenda is among my many duties as presiding officer, and I assure you, there will not be a tax increase on the agenda this year, just as there was no tax increase on the agenda in the past two years. Where did you even get your information?

Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) has announced that legislation he sponsors to save taxpayer dollars through increased prosecution of Medicaid fraud has been passed by the Senate.

The legislation (S594) would allow the state’s Office of Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) to refer Medicaid fraud cases to local district attorneys for prosecution.

 

Letter: Sena Thanks Farmingdale Community

I want to express my appreciation to all the village residents who gave me the opportunity to run for mayor. In particular, I would like to thank those who supported my Village Independent Party (VIP) team and me.

I am grateful for having two terrific running mates, Mike Manchin and Susan Miles, who worked so hard during this campaign.

 

Letter: Manchin Thanks Community

Friday, 30 March 2012 00:00

After a long and protracted decision process over the course of many months, I entered a long and arduous campaign with the Village Independent Party (VIP) to seek the trustee position. Many demands were put on family, friends and myself. Most of my life has centered on serving and helping others, so this was a welcomed challenge to be endured. The others on the team, Georgiana Sena and Susan Miles, are two fine people who possess a profound sense of civic responsibility.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my family, friends and the Farmingdale community who supported and voted for the Village Independent Party.

It is with great pride to have run with Georgiana Sena and Mike Manchin in this year’s election.

The announcement on the suspension of the N&Y Professional Service Line driving school’s license following allegations of fraud is yet another example of why we need greater oversight of the bus industry.

This scam, in which the school’s owners are charged with helping drivers cheat on the written commercial driver license exam for bus drivers, highlights the continuing problem of individuals trying to get behind the wheel of a bus without the proper qualifications.

Providing transformative relief to millions of taxpayers, creating tens of thousands of new jobs, and ensuring a stronger, more prosperous future for many years to come are the cornerstone of the Senate’s ‘2012 New Jobs – New York’ plan. Nassau County residents will greatly benefit should this plan become law.

In 2011, I and my colleagues successfully reduced state spending, cut income taxes (bringing middle class rates to the lowest level in 58 years), rolled back the MTA Payroll Tax, and provided a 2 percent cap on local property taxes, all of which were particularly onerous for Nassau residents.

 

Letter: Moby Pharmacist Supports Ekstrand

Friday, 16 March 2012 00:00
March 20th is Election Day in Farmingdale Village. I have a significant bias toward Ralph Ekstrand, having been his friend and business partner for more than 30 years.

I feel it is important as a village resident to share some of the attributes that make Ralph the best choice for mayor. He has values that most politicians can only dream of. He is humble, trustworthy, dedicated, hardworking-a good man, father and husband. Many have seen these characteristics in Ralph the last four years as a village trustee. He will bring the same energy to his mayoral-ship.

I am so pleased Georgiana Sena is running for Mayor of Farmingdale. She has been an advocate for the Village residents for years, especially devoting her time, energy and expense to write the Eye on the Village, a Village publication which informs the residents what is really going on in Village government.
