$6.5 MILLION LEGISLATION FOR HEMPSTEAD VILLAGE

I
am pleased to announce, that with the assistance and cooperation of Village Trustees, the Honorable Don Ryan and the Honorable Perry Pettus, I have been successful in introducing legislation (A11896, June 13, 2006) in the amount of $6.5 million for debt relief in the Village of Hempstead. Without the hard work and dedication to all the people of the Village and in acknowledging their fiscal duties (see Hevesi, April 21, 2006), this could not have happened at this point in time without them.

The 2006 legislative budget passed without the Village’s input and since this is the end of session, this legislation would have had to wait until January 2007.

“This gives the Village a fresh start to address the myriad problems confronting us all.”

In addition, it is appropriate to commend the Honorable Lenore Long, Trustee, for her vital information advising the Legislative body of potential partisan allocation of funds, employment and resources in the Village. Her input alerted the legislature to the necessity of including language that provides State Comptroller oversight and Legislative review to assure the funds are appropriated properly.

These funds, $6.5 million, give the Village a fresh start to address the myriad of problems confronting us ALL by first paying our debts and paying them properly.

I look forward to continue working for our constituents for the betterment of our Village.
