I picked up my mail this morning and discovered a letter from the County Executive's office in Mineola. I had submitted a note to Tom Suozzi and other relevant officials (more on this when I have something to announce), and this was his response.
It was a fairly standard response thanking me for sharing my thoughts on the Lighthouse Project and reminding me to reach out to him again if there is anything he could do. However, there was one line in there that was very nice to see, since we haven't heard much from Suozzi about the project lately:
"...I would like you to know that I am fully committed to the Lighthouse Project and in keeping the Islanders in Nassau County..."
Well, Mr. Suozzi, I hope we can hold you to that.
Personal aside: I met Mr. Suozzi earlier this decade as a contestant on The Long Island Challenge. He presented my team with the Nassau County Championship and referred to me as a "warrior." I think we're lucky to have him in Nassau County, and I am convinced that he is committed to finding a good solution to the Lighthouse issue.
I welcome your thoughts on Tom Suozzi and the County's handling of the Lighthouse in the comments, and we can continue our discussion on yesterday's Town of Hempstead meeting in the previous thread. A more detailed post is coming later today if I can find my notepad.
