New Cap On STAR Savings Angers Some

This article is incorrect.......The total state appropriation for STAR last year was $3.25 billion, not $325 billion. The entire state budget is $130 billion. It INCREASED this year to $3.3 bilion while virtually every other item in the State Budget was cut. in essence the school district is criticizing the State for not subsidizing its double digit tax increase. STAR was supposed to reduce taxes not subsidize big increases. That is why the State Legislature enacted a tax cap this year.......It takes a bit of nerve to preside over a big tax increase and then criticize another level of government for not covering their fiscal irresponsibility. If the school district had limited its tax increase this year to 2%, the STAR cap would have had no affect at all.

Traffic Solutions Remain Elusive Following Accidents Requiring The Closure Of County Road 39

After decades of study and no action on public transportation, $37.2 million was place in the in the MTA Capital Budget which was approved by the State Legislature in 2012 at my request. The trains are scheduled to be purchased by the LIRR in 2014. The purchase of these trains will permit shuttle trains to be used by the LIRR on the the diesel part of the LIRR on the East End, allowing more frequent service and intra-island service. I think that is leading.............

After decades of studies and inaction, at my request, the State Legislature in 2012 included $37.2 million for scoot diesels for the East End which are scheduled to be purchased by the MTA in 2014 under their capital plan. In case, you forgot, I also led the creation of the pilot project for a shuttle during the CR 39 reconstruction several years back. That pilot project led to the MTA including the East End Shuttle in its Capital Plan and funding by the State Legislature. I think that is leadership......

PSEG Freezes Rates, Yet Electric Bills Still Jump Up

Thiele voted against the LIPA legislation last year and warned that this would happen..He spoke on the floor against it and was one of the few LI lawmakers to vote no..... ..do your homework.......also Thiele passed a bill in the State Assembly to end zone pricing of gasoline....it didn't pass the Senate....

Governor Signs New Bill To Facilitate Merger Of Southampton And Tuckahoe School Districts

Nearly incoherent.......how is a bill that allows a $9 million reserve fund to be returned to the Southampton taxpayers if it is not needed for a new building a lose-lose. The merger decision is still a local home rule decision. The new state laws simply permit Southampton to also share in the benefits from the reduced expenditures that result from a merger......not just Tuckahoe. Shouldn't the state be passing laws that maximize the savings from a school consolidation, then leave the choice to the voters???? " Aug 5, 14 9:32 PM

Lack Of Communication Between PSEG, Southampton Town Results In Traffic Nightmare Tuesday Morning

This one is completely on PSEG----they have no sense of community relations. They mishandled the substation in Shelter Island, the tall poles in East Hampton, and now this.........they claimed they contacted the Town......but its a County Road, the fact is they just went out and did it........You don't have to be a scholar to realize you can't do this project during the trade parade..they just don't know the community...and don't care about learning.....expect more.....the Governor has given us a utility company that is not subject to any regulatory oversight. Mr. Weir...just admit you made a mistake and move on......those are the lamest excuses I've ever heard. They lied during the EH utility pole project and they lied yesterday....... Nothing has changed since PSEG took over...in fact it's worse. " Oct 9, 14 2:41 PM
