Oil Price Reality

The price of oil has dropped. Yipee! Consumers are happy, with more money in their pockets to consume. Billionaires in Congress and others on Capitol Hill are happier as they rake in the loot. They loosen laws allowing more funding in elections, so they can control their outcomes. [Read more…]

No To LIRR Increase

The metrics for ridership on the PW line exceeds those of all the lines on LI. The capacity, the monthly riders, weekend ridership and satisfaction are all high but not so high to justify any rate increase of any size. The only worthwhile reason to raise fares would be to install WiFi on all the trains or reduce or eliminate operational costs. [Read more…]

Timing Of Vote Unfair

It is an unfair advantage toward a yes vote to hold the teacher conference day and the vote at the same time. There is such a thing as ‘home court advantage’ and this is a naked grab of such. Parents are not going to the school, see the facility and their kids teachers and then vote NO! [Read more…]

Vote For Jay Hernandez MPD

We fully support Jay Hernandez for Manhasset Park Commissioner!

We all know that parking in Manhasset is a valuable commodity with so many Suburbans and too few parking spaces. We need to make the most of the parking real estate that is available to Manhasset residents as commuters, shoppers, and merchants. Jay is a hardworking, forward thinking individual who will do his best to develop real solutions to our parking conundrum.  In our conversations with Jay we have learned that he has already laid out plans that will maximize the current space allocated to commuters, make retail parking more efficient, and continue to work with the Town of North Hempstead to the benefit of all Manhasset residents.

We have known Jay for over 20 years and are proud to call him a friend. Helen and I both grew up in Manhasset and value all that Manhasset embodies past, present, and future. We can say with confidence that Jay Hernandez also shares these same values. Jay is an honest individual who will serve Manhasset well when elected Park Commissioner.
