  • Your comments are spot-on as usual.

  • Why not make some suggestions to him. Other areas are actively working with Sup. Lesko and feel good. Sorry that you feel Rocky Point and Miller Place isn’t getting heard. I don’t work directly with Brookhaven or the Supervisor, but he seems like a very fair and likeable guy. When I hear him talk, he speaks about all the council districts. Maybe you can look at changing your perspective. Maybe it will help.

  • I hope he means what he says about not increasing taxes. A fine example is the sidewalk project on King Road in Rocky Point that will cost 1.2 million dollars in borrowed money that no one on King Road wants. This project is being pushed by Jane Bonner and Rich Johannesen, not the people on King Road. Jane Bonner only listens to her constituents when they agree with her.
