A heartfelt ‘thank you’ to the many volunteers who helped decorate our Village for the 2010 holiday season. The air was cold and crisp but spirits were sunny and warm as the members of the Beautification Committee, together with new volunteers, members of the Women’s Club, Junior Members of the Village Fire Department, Mayor, Trustees and Public Works Superintendent and staff worked countless hours getting all our decorations prepared for this year.

With Thanksgiving close at hand, there are those that are blessed with plenty of food, but have no one to share it with.

I want to thank the residents of the 10th Assembly District for giving me another two-year term as your State Assemblyman in Albany. As I begin my new term, I am energized, once again, to push for a reform agenda that includes property tax relief, spending restraint and strict ethical adherence for legislators.
I sincerely thank those individuals who supported me in my run for state assembly. I know they had made significant sacrifices in my efforts to fight the dysfunction in Albany and to promote economic growth in our state. Their labor made my message resonate in our community. Furthermore, I thank the voters of the 13th Assembly District who cast a ballot for me on Election Day. It is not over…
I’d like to thank the residents of the 8th Senate District for re-electing me to another term in the New York State Senate.
The Farmingdale School District continues its commitment to the community by making fiscally sound decisions in light of the economic downturn. This past spring, the community voted to use funds from the capital reserve to replace windows at Farmingdale High School. There was no increase to the tax levy as a result of the community’s decision and no further financial commitment is necessary. This work is part of the district’s long-term energy savings plan.
I was disappointed but not surprised to hear that John Venditto just proposed a tax increase because, after all, this continues the pattern of the all-Republican Oyster Bay Town Board. Despite the fact that seven out of 10 other towns on Long Island have found a way to hold the line on taxes, Oyster Bay has followed its normal playbook of increasing taxes in a non-election year. This maintains the practice, which has led to a 45 percent increase in taxes over the last six years. This translates to an average increase on your and my tax bills of approximately $600. My one hope is that Councilwoman Rebecca Alesia cannot possibly vote for this increase, inasmuch as she is running for reelection on the “Tax Revolt” line.
