Letter: Police Commissioner Responds to Critics of the Community Policing Plan

Friday, 30 March 2012 00:00

Over the past several months, there has been much speculation and criticism about the future of Nassau’s eight police precinct buildings. Though critics of this plan have expressed skepticism on realigning the current eight precincts into four, it is important to remember that all eight buildings will remain open and accessible to the public. The realignment of the precincts only affects the boundary lines of administrative paperwork and criminal processing, not the locations in which officers are located on the streets as some critics have stated.

With the warmer weather upon us, the activity on our playgrounds and fields increases tremendously. We have hundreds and hundreds of children participating in youth sports programs and many other kids playing on our playground equipment each week. This speaks volumes of our community – we have kids who really enjoy recreational activities. This is exactly how our fields and playgrounds should be utilized.

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: A Story of Two House Fires

Friday, 09 March 2012 00:00

Two recent house fires, one in New Jersey and one right here in Levittown has prompted me, in the interest of fire safety, to review both of them. The fire in South Plainfield, NJ two weeks ago took the lives of four young children and one adult. It scarred the lives of the members of that volunteer fire department’s members. They witnessed horrors there that they will long remember.

The other house fire took place in Levittown on Feb. 24. In that fire, three children and one adult escaped with very minor injuries. The Levittown Fire Department volunteers responded quickly and extinguished the fire.

 

Letter: A Follow-Up to Levittown Theater and Booze

Friday, 02 March 2012 00:00
Here are a couple of items of interest since my last letter. I had a conversation with Gary Hudes this evening. Gary explained to me that he has approached the Levittown Theater people about doing a presentation for the community and he was told that they (Levittown theater) did not want to do anything with a large group. As I have said previously, none of us know what Lowes’ specific plans are concerning adding the sale of liquor in the theater.

Learning is like building a house – you need to do it from the foundation up one step at a time. Naturally, children need to know the basics before they can tackle complex topics. These are skills parents can start building in the home step by step and teachers can then enrich at school. To do this, parents need to read and talk with their children each day to develop a strong foundation of knowledge. In fact, it is suggested that pre-school and elementary parents spend at least 15 minutes a day reading with their children.  If this is unrealistic in your home, then your children should spend this time with reading materials.

Senator Kemp Hannon reports the New York State Senate has passed a trio of school bus bills, which will protect child safety and enhance communication.

Senate bill 3099A increases the penalties for passing a stopped school bus. The legislation would impose a 60-day suspension of a driver’s license if convicted of passing a stopped school bus two or more times. This legislation would make the penalties for passing a stopped school bus multiple times the same as penalties for drivers convicted of speeding in a construction zone two or more times.
