Letter: Where are the breaks for residents?

11/29/2012 4:00 AM |

To the Editor:

Now that Hampton Jitney has received such generous tax breaks from the IDA to support their building project on Edwards Avenue, it would be a nice gesture on the part of the Jitney to create equity in their fare structure for Riverhead riders.

Say I’m a Riverhead student and, going west, I board the Jitney on Route 58 in Riverhead. I will pay the same fare as any rider who boarded the bus in Orient, Greenport or any other stop on the North Fork. Something’s wrong with that picture.

It’s especially outrageous given the negative impact of the IDA tax breaks on the Riverhead School District.

What would motivate our Riverhead politicians to actually insist on just treatment for its own citizens?

Most of these entertainment games were not that sensible when the concept was first being used. Just like other areas of electronics, video games too have had to grow by many many years.

  • Hello, I really want to say, I disagree. Your current blog does not make any sense.

  • I have really learned result-oriented things by means of your weblog. One other thing I’d really like to say is that newer laptop os’s are likely to allow more memory to be used, but they also demand more memory simply to run. If someone’s computer can not handle a lot more memory and the newest program requires that storage increase, it is usually the time to shop for a new Personal computer. Thanks
