As the trade parade continues to ignore speed limit signs and limited access signs to our neighborhood roads, our supervisor once again looks the other way. “Laws not enforced cease to be laws” — Thomas Moriarty.
Sound public policy requires that the town supervisor be engaged, not disinterested. Our town government demands considerable debate, compromise and refinement in determining a course of action.

Unfortunately, the current situation in Town Hall is “What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate” (the movie: “Cool Hand Luke”). The supervisor must communicate on a regular basis with our neighbors, the sovereign Shinnecock Indian Nation and the seven villages within our boundaries.
