Long Beach Community Forum on Redistricting

 St. Mary of the Isle, 315 E. Walnut Street Long Beach  See map
Your voting power can change every ten years, when governments 'redistrict'--draw new electoral maps.  Nassau County votes in February and may approve  a plan that combines Long Beach and Massapequa.  Make your voice heard in support of a fair redistricting process, learn how the maps affect you, and how you can take action.

Hopefully this will give us a shot at ousting the socialist democrats that have been taxing us to the poor house and running our beach into the ground like Freeport, Roosevelt and the other Democrat strongholds.

You mean oust the people who are honest and upstanding citizens of long beach (minus fagan) and put back into power the corrupt republican administration who is the reason the city is in financial ruins! Not likely....

Honest and upstanding? Hiring friends and family after pledging not to, laying off hard working city employees to clear the way to hiring their families and friends, hiring a guy who lied on his resume about going to college, hiring a guy who failed multiple civil service tests, last minute promotions in the police department, taking a $20K settlemnt for a dubious lawsuit... Shall I conbtinue? Ok, saying the City was $60 mill in debt, then $30 mill, then $20 mill and now $10 mill without any proof. Declaring a hiring freeze and fiscal emergency and then embarking on a friends and family hire spree. Raising taxes despite saying they wouldn't and increasing spending when they said they wouldn't. Not putting forth the independant auditors report that by law must be completed by September (5 month ago). Please Cara, you are deluded.

The person responsible for Long Beach's current problems is former Councilman Michael Z. Zapson, Esq. who is now Long Beach's "Democrat" leader. He and his Democrat cronies on the City Council except for the sole good person on it from the Republican party are 100% responsible for Long Beach's recent 42% tax hike the past 14 months. The Democrats are responsible for making Long Beach homeowner think they are burning up and living in a tax hell and flood hole. The truth hurts does it not Democrats! The truth will set you free!

Did you have to mention that name. Whenever I hear it it reminds me for the tremendous amount of money he clipped us for.

The original post was for an informational meeting. It was not meant as a forum for venting one's displeasure.

"...tax hell and flood hole." Yep Leonard. That about sums it up.

I love Long Beach very much, but do not like how the Democrats are raping the taxpayer's pocketbook like taxpayers money is their thiefdom. I do not like the Democrats disrespect of the taxpayer and the honest City Hall workers especially those that are conservative Republicans. Democrats get what they deserve from their fellow Democrats since they already sold their soul to the devil.
