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 a superb job over the last 12 years with his determination and resolve in making the Town of Oyster Bay one of the leading towns in NYS to live.
Supervisor John Venditto heard our voices when it counted most. He has continued to act in the best interests of the residents of Jericho and Syosset by consistently saying no to the proposed 860,000 sq. ft. mall on the former Cerro Wire site on Robbins Lane. Even though the recent court rulings resulted in a major victory in our 13-plus year battle against the mall, all signs indicate that the Taubman Company is rearming itself to launch another attempt to get its mega-mall project approved.
As residents in the surrounding communities that would be most adversely affected by the mall, it’s imperative that we support John Venditto’s ongoing efforts to stop the mall by re-electing 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, November 3. 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
