School Boards: No Tax Cap Without Mandate Relief

Friday, 03 June 2011 00:00

(Statement by NYSSBA Executive Director Timothy G. Kremer)

Let’s be clear: a 2 percent tax cap on school districts fails to address the root causes of our ever-increasing tax burden.

Politicians and special interest groups can trumpet the tax cap all they want, but homeowners across New York will find their taxes continuing to rise unless their elected officials get serious about relieving local schools of millions of dollars of costs tied up in state mandates that do nothing to advance student achievement.

The Redevelopment of the Coliseum Site

For too long, Nassau Coliseum and the property that surrounds it has laid to waste rather than generate revenue for the county that can help hold the line on property taxes. The Coliseum is no longer competitive with other sports complexes around the nation. Long Island’s only professional sports team, the Islanders, face the potential of having to leave Nassau in 2015 when their lease expires should a new arena not be built. A countless number of residents have contacted me with concerns over losing the Islanders. These residents do not want to see the Coliseum doors shuttered, people losing their jobs or the loss of economic benefits currently received from our hotels, restaurants and stores.

No Refuge

There are more than a million documented episodes of domestic violence in the United States every year. In Nassau County, over 16,000 domestic violence calls were reported to the police one year ago. Nevertheless, only 25 percent of domestic violence incidents are reported to the police, according to a 2009 report by the Children’s Defense Fund. The collateral damage in these violent encounters is three to ten million child witnesses who feel alone and vulnerable.

Immigrant Businesses Power Long Island

Flemming Hansen didn’t necessarily expect to be an entrepreneur. And he didn’t expect to be plying his trade here on Long Island.

Growing up in Denmark, he aspired to become a chef; decades later, he found success as a baker. Close enough.

But to his surprise, he ended up running a profitable business far from his native homeland: In 1998, Hansen opened Copenhagen Bakery in Northport, which has become one of the best-known and most popular cake shops on Long Island.

This year, four candidates are running for seats on the Massapequa School Board. Two of them are incumbents seeking re-election and two are challengers. During a recent Candidates Night, they spoke and responded to questions and, as might be expected, there was very little agreement.

Create a Legacy By Planting Trees

You probably have a favorite tree-lined street in your community. Or a tree-filled neighborhood you’ve always admired. Or a favorite forest where you like to bask in the beauty of the trees.

It’s important to remember that those beautiful spaces aren’t here by accident. The forests we enjoy today – which give us both pleasure and environmental benefits – are here because of the vision, courage and hard work of generations past.

Concerned About Haste in Redrawing County’s Legislative Districts

The League of Women Voters of Nassau County, a non-partisan organization, which neither supports nor opposes any candidate or political party, is concerned about the County Legislature’s haste in re-drawing the legislative district lines.  In doing this, the Legislature is not adhering to its own County Charter, subsection 113, which requires an advisory redistricting commission to be established to reapportion the county legislative districts based on the federal census.

When a Child Refuses to Go to School

Twenty-eight percent of children across the United States refuse to go to school at some time during their school years. In a recent survey of new applications at North Shore Child and Family Guidance Center, we found increasing numbers of children who refused to go to school. This was further validated at a meeting that the Guidance Center hosted for counselors, social workers and psychologists from public and private schools throughout Nassau County.
