Kyle Rabin, Friends of the Bay (FOB) executive director wasn't the first speaker at the SEA Fund II nominating meeting held May 3 at town hall, but he was the one with the most interesting information. The SEA Fund committee meeting was hosted by Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto who said, "Let's talk of the future, since we have $30 million of your money. In 2004 we asked the voters again for $30 million. [In Sea Fund I 2000 they received $20 million for open space and $10 million for park renovations.] This will be $15 million for open space and $15 million for parks. Seventy-two percent of the people voted favorably for the SEA Fund II bond act."

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto hosted the SEA Fund II nomination meeting held at town hall on May 3. He said he was born in 1949 in Massapequa on a block in a wooded area where there were four houses. Today there are about 40 houses on that block. "There are ten times the amount of people that came with the development problems, as well as 10 times as much traffic and ten times less open space," as a result, he said that he has become an environmentalist and is aware of the problems of noise, congestion and overdevelopment.
