Zeldin Returns To East End During First Extended Trip Home

Feb 17, 2015 3:02 PM

U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin spent his first extended time this week in New York’s 1st Congressional District since being sworn into office last month, making multiple stops on the East End.

During a sitdown in Southampton on Monday, Mr. Zeldin said he’s used this month’s district work week to hear out constituent issues by going on the air at Sag Harbor’s WLNG radio station and meeting with pastors at Riverhead’s First Baptist Church earlier this week.

Though he comes home—he lives in Shirley—at the end of each work week, Mr. Zeldin said much of that time is spent with his family and tending to other obligations throughout the district, which includes the entire East End and spans as far west as Smithtown.

“Every week, I’ve been in session for at least part of the week,” he said. “This is the first entire week we’re not in D.C. and we’re back in the district. I enjoy talking to people to give them an update as to what’s going on, but I also get a lot out of listening to people about what their concerns are.”

Mr. Zeldin, who sits on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said he’s in the process of working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to find out how roughly $600 million of the $700 million set aside for Hurricane Sandy relief projects will be spent. So far, about $100 million has been accounted for between various projects, including beach nourishment in downtown Montauk.

“It’s important to find out what they want to do with it, but I wouldn’t want to blindly endorse whatever their answer would be to that,” Mr. Zeldin said of the Army Corps.

Mr. Zeldin, who campaigned against the Affordable Care Act last fall, also said he and his fellow Republicans are working on finalizing a bill that would replace the law with a new system, but added they must wait until the Supreme Court makes its next ruling on the law—also known as Obamacare—this summer before moving forward.

“There are a few committee leaders working together to create a single alternative, and I would encourage that effort to continue very thoroughly until completion,” he said.

Thank goodness the east end is now represented by a politician with common sense. Keep up the good work fighting against ObamaCare Mr. Zeldin. Many people out here support your efforts even though you'll never read about it in this newspaper.

Trying to explain his controversial comments that President Obama doesn’t love America, Rudy Giuliani said Friday that he believes the President has been influenced by communism and socialism. “Look, this man was brought up basically in a white family, so whatever he learned or didn’t learn, I attribute this more to the influence of communism and socialism” than to his race, Giuliani told the Daily News. “I don’t (see) this President as being particularly a product of African-American society or something like that. He isn’t,” the former mayor added. “Logically, think about his background. . . The ideas that are troubling me and are leading to this come from communists with whom he associated when he was 9 years old” through family connections.

Fast and Furious scandal: A federal operation headed up by Atorney General Eric Holder at the direction of Barack Hussein Obama II dubbed Fast and Furious allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun smugglers so the arms could be traced to the higher echelons of Mexican drug cartels. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which ran the operation, has lost track of thousands of firearms, many of which have been linked to crimes, including the fatal shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

Not everyone shares the opinion that the movie was a positive. Some veterans are not fans, some are. Just like the rest of us. Some of the reason that it didn't get a nod would probably be the director's omissions and potential bias, which Mr. Reppenhagen points out via his own Iraq War experience.

I'm from the school of Theodore Roosevelt. I'm more than willing to vote for whomever will do the best job. Unfortunately, I can't vote for most GOP candidates simply because of their fantastical religious beliefs, and their invasive use of religion in civic life. Nor can I vote for a candidate who thinks a woman can swallow a camera to have a gynecological exam.

The GOP as it stands is unfortunately the party of the woefully ignorant and self absorbed.

The history of the Second Amendment indicates that its purposes were to secure to each individual the right to keep and bear arms so that he could protect his absolute individual rights as well as carry out his obligation to assist in the common defense. It is evident that the framers of the Constitution did not intend to limit the right to keep and bear arms to a ...more

“The purpose of the Second Amendment is to secure our ability to oppose enemies foreign and domestic, a guarantee against disorder and tyranny. Consider the words of Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story”: ‘The importance of this article will scarcely be doubted by any persons, who have duly reflected upon the subject. The militia is the natural defense of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers. It is against sound policy for a free people to keep up large military establishments and standing armies in time of peace, both from the enormous expenses, with which they are attended, and the facile means, which they afford to ambitious and unprincipled rulers, to subvert the government, or trample upon the rights of the people. The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.’

Story wasn't even a Justice until the Era of Good Feelings. He wasn't even born until after the American Revolution.

Once again, you display your stunning brilliance, and alacrity toward the prospect of deeming yourself undeniably right.

I would advise in the future that you vet your sources in a more cautious manner.

"military grade ordnance like the ammo in uestion was kept under tight w tch."

What type of military grade ordnance would that be;)?


“the right ofathe people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

This is the people in contrast with the militia. It doesn’t say “the right of the militia to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” it says “the right of the people.”

Now why the word “people” ...more

Somehow I don't think the men who wrote the Amendment had automatic weapons in mind. Most people didn't own their own cannon. Heck, why should we stop with AR-15s?

Let's just mount M-61s on our vehicles and call it a day.

It doesn't matter what a law abiding, responsible citizen owns. They are not the problem, criminals are.

AR-15s are the subject of the current ammo topic du jour.

You would think you'd keep up with current events.

Elizabeth Warren's name coming up in the same sentence as presidential candidate shows the Demokrat Party has come completely unhinged!

The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary Rodham when she worked on the Watergate investigation in 1974, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther ... and goes much deeper ... than anyone realizes. Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation ... one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career. Why? “Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
