As a longtime resident and civic leader in the Town of Oyster Bay, I believe we have been fortunate to have a Town Supervisor who has done an outstanding job over the last 14 years in making the Town of Oyster Bay one of the leading towns in New York State to live and raise our families.
Back in 2001, Supervisor John Venditto heard our voices when it counted most by voting against the proposed 860,000 square foot mall on the former Cerro Wire site on Robbins Lane. Since then, he has continued to act in the best interests of the residents of Jericho and Syosset by consistently saying no to the idea of a mall and supports the community’s call for alternate development instead.
With all signs indicating the developer is getting ready to launch another major push for its mall project it’s imperative that we support John Venditto’s commitment to stop the mall by reelecting him Town Supervisor in this year’s election.
Regardless of party affiliation, if you’re opposed to the mall, I urge you to take the time to cast your vote for John Venditto on Tuesday, Nov. 8. A vote for John Venditto will send a clear message that our No Mall Here position is as strong as ever.
Chairman, Cerro Wire Coalition
