Dave Gugerty Endorsed By League of Conservation Voters

Thursday, 22 August 2013 00:00

The New York League of Conservation Voters, which works to make environmental sustainability a top political and policy priority in New York State, has announced its endorsement of Dave Gugerty for Nassau County Legislator in District 18.

During his time as a trustee in the Village of Bayville, Gugerty vastly expanded the curbside recycling program. He has also served as majority counsel for the Nassau County Legislature, during which time he drafted the Environmental Bonds Act with the successful goal of land preservation. Once in office, he hopes to implement bike lanes throughout Nassau County and build dunes to protect coastlines in order to adapt to radical weather patterns.

Questioning Comptroller Maragos

On Tree Cutting  

I want to submit a short note to my constituents who are undoubtedly upset over recent news reports, in which Comptroller George Maragos states that all tree cutting in Welwyn and other county areas was completely necessary.   The short version of his statement is that all trees needed to come down. Plenty people have raised a case to the contrary.  

Since Mr. Maragos has put out this report seeking to clear himself and the candidate for County Executive with whom he will be sharing a party line on the ballot this November, Edward Mangano, I need to respond.  

 

Letter: What’s the August 20 Vote All About?

Thursday, 15 August 2013 00:00

On August 20th the Town of Oyster Bay (the “Town”) is asking you to decide whether it should sell a 54-acre parcel currently used by the Department of Public Works (the “DPW Parcel”).  The driving force behind the sale would be to decrease the Town’s debt in order to prevent a downgrade in the Town’s Bond rating.  

 

The influx of cash from the sale (approximately $32 million dollars) will be a temporary alleviation of the Town’s fiscal problems.

 

Letter: vWelcome To Heatherwood Traffic Light

Thursday, 15 August 2013 00:00

 While promoting the Oyster Bay-East Norwich community is our mission, the safety of our community members and visitors is always of the utmost importance.  

 

The addition of this new traffic signal at the gateway to the Oyster Bay-East Norwich business district will provide additional safety for all. We applaud Legislator Jacobs on leading this initiative.

Letter: Repair Our Sewer System Properly

Thursday, 15 August 2013 00:00

Let me begin by affirming that the Democratic Caucus of the Nassau County Legislature is committed to funding every cent necessary to rebuild our sewage treatment plants that were damaged during Superstorm Sandy. However, we believe that in order to authorize funding there are three enormous inter-related problems the county faces that must be addressed.

 

First, the reckless borrowing and spending under County Executive Mangano has caused Nassau’s debt to soar to $3.5 billion. Second, the reconstruction of the sewage treatment plants will require an additional $1 billion in borrowed funds, but must be closely monitored in the wake of federal, state and local investigations stemming from previous post-

Sandy contracts and finally the repairs and the funding must be secured in phases and properly monitored to ensure timely completion and maximize federal reimbursement. 

 

Letter: Response To Dover Letter

Wednesday, 07 August 2013 00:00

A recent copy of [the Enterprise-Pilot] carried a letter written by Benjamin Dover which was being ignored by me because obviously Mr. Dover has either been grossly misinformed or he is purposely misinforming; however, a friend whose judgment I trust, urged me to respond.

Why this vitriolic critique

of me? I’m out of the political arena or is he daring me to reenter? It only makes sense if he is laying the groundwork for whomever he may be supporting next June.

 

Letter: Vote Yes To Stop The Mall

Wednesday, 07 August 2013 00:00

As a 20-plus year resident of Oyster Bay, I’ve seen many things change for the better in our town and few things that took us backward. It’s rare that residents have a chance to vote directly on important issues like preserving our suburban quality of life...with one single yes vote. Oyster Bay Town residents have this opportunity on Tuesday, August 20, when they vote yes to approve the Town’s land sale. There’s so much at stake and it’s time for us to show we really care about our quality of life by voting yes and being heard, loud and clear.

 

Letter: Reasons For Saving and Repurposing The Power Plant

Thursday, 01 August 2013 00:00

Since February, I have pitched the idea of saving and repurposing the Glenwood Landing (GWL) power plant as a viable, commercial, tax-paying enterprise to all local, town, county, state and federal politicians, to all area mayors, to LIPA and National Grid, in letters, emails, statements and in letters to the newspapers.

 

• The GWL plant is a historically and architecturally unique building on Long Island. Such plants were designed as civic monuments with the best architectural features of their day, to show that they would be there for the long term to provide a reliable source of electricity. According to architectural historian, Richard Gachot, the GWL plant is a “very important vestige of early 20th century industrial architecture, a symbol of power harnessed for mass consumption.”

 

Letter: Bayville, The Truth Will Prevail

Thursday, 25 July 2013 00:00

It’s really spot on about the Bayville beaches not being open as early as in past years and having shorter hours and it appears those few who made the decision got voted down and the hours restored. Great stuff, the Village Board listened and acted. Cutting there to try and solve financial issues wasn’t right. Thank God smarter minds prevailed. But, the reason for Bayville’s looking to save a few bucks is not a failure of the present administration, it is a direct result of the old mayor’s inadequate preparation of what was known to come, mainly LOSAP and a Federal Feasibility Study that was ignored (hidden) this past year. In the real world when you know something is going to happen you start making reserves, but not the great mayor of the past. No plan means no problems, ignore it and don’t run again, let the new guys take the heat. Like now. All this back slapping of the old mayor’s “shoestring budget” regime is getting old.

A Troubling Alternative

I prefer thinking positive thoughts. But not everyone has the same mental habits. There are some folks who just love thinking through the absolute worst-case scenarios. What if the LIE shuts down and I can’t get home? What if Long Island beaches became infested with sharks and all are closed for the summer? What if the Mets never get their act together?

Those are all pretty crazy, right?

But now it’s worth taking a look at a possibility that seems just as crazy if it were to happen – that the House of Representatives doesn’t pass immigration reform, and our federal system stays broken.
