Assemblyman Tom McKevitt hosted his 5th annual Women of Distinction event recently at the Albertson VFW. With over 200 guests in attendance including former recipients of the award, family, friends, and this year’s honorees, the event was a community-wide success, noted McKevitt.
“With the outpouring of support for these women in the community it is obvious that we are so fortunate to call them our friends and neighbors,” said McKevitt. “These women represent some of the most courageous and accomplished individuals in our state and nation. Taken together, their achievements and dedication have resulted in the continuous improvement of our quality of life and an enlargement of our sense of community here on Long Island.”

“The development of the Hub is critically important to the Nassau County economy,” Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos said at a July 21 press conference. “It currently supports hundreds of jobs and has the potential to create thousands of construction jobs and permanent jobs as well as increase tax revenues.”
Maragos said that he conducted a review to determine the economic feasibility of the current proposal to develop the Nassau Hub and retain the NY Islanders hockey team. At this point in time, he said, a comprehensive analysis cannot be completed as the lease agreement with the Islanders is still under negotiation and several significant terms have yet to be resolved such as revenue sharing, revenue guarantees, cost overrun protections and the Islanders’ commitment to remain in Nassau County.
