Letter: Rep. King Talks Iran

Thursday, 05 December 2013 00:00

Congressman Peter King, Chairman, Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterintelligence & Terrorism, Member of Select Committee on Intelligence, Issued The Following Statement:

 

“President Obama’s agreement with Iran is a serious strategic mistake. The United States will ease sanctions on Iran making billions of dollars available to the Iranians while Iran does not have to dismantle any of their 19,000 centrifuges.

This agreement is a victory for Iran and a defeat for the United States and our allies in the Middle East, specifically Israel and Saudi Arabia.”

 

—Submitted by Kevin Fogarty, Rep. King’s Chief of Staff

Letter: Keep Pressure On The Common Core

Thursday, 28 November 2013 00:00

I congratulate parents and teachers on their protests on Common Core curriculum and testing. I wonder if the authors of Common Core have any idea of the cognitive readiness of the children for the content at each grade level. The commissioner is throwing at the audience “educanese” policies which are meant to intimidate. To the credit of the audience he is not succeeding. In my 49 years of teaching I have I never witnessed such widespread disapproval of an education program; and confusion. But we have never had such radical change thrust on us.

Letter: Weitzman Offers Thanks In Comptroller Race

Thursday, 14 November 2013 00:00

 

While the result achieved on Election Day is not what I had hoped, I want to express my sincerest thanks and appreciation to all the people who supported me in this election and encouraged me to run again.  We ran a great campaign, and I am indebted to my supporters and staff who worked so hard over these last 6 months.  It was clear that whether you agreed with it or not, we could not overcome the message of not raising County property taxes.

 

Maragos Thanks Supporters

Written by Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos Thursday, 14 November 2013 00:00

I want to thank everyone who voted on November 5 and participated in the most important part of the democratic process. The results clearly show that Nassau County residents want lower taxes, less expensive government and high quality services. These are not incompatible objectives. These objectives can be accomplished by continuing to make government more efficient by finding and eliminating waste, fraud, and unnecessary expenses while growing our economy to provide jobs, opportunities and additional sales tax revenues.
