DeGiorgio, Pollack to Be on Business Improvement District

The two former competitors will work together on this board.

The  board approved a measure that put as the Town liaison on Port Washington’s Business Improvement District.  Former will also be on the board.

As explained it, there is an additional opening on the board, and he can select who fills the spot. He is placing Pollack on the board.

DeGiorgio said that since the voters elected her and voted Pollack out of office, and because Pollack is not a business owner, his appointment would "make the board ineffectual." This scenario, she said, is "setting the board up to fail."

The appointment, she added, is "an insult to the people of Port Washington and to me."

Pointing to Pollack's presence on this board for nearly 16 years and his experience with it, he is a strong candidate, Kaiman said.

Still, Kaiman noted that Pollack's "style can be challenging" and that if this appointment doesn't work, it can be revisited in the future.

Well I see this was done to basically put a rock in her shoe. We threw this bum out and now he is forced back on us.

The people spoke they dont want Fred Pollack -- and the BID is spinning its wheels until a mechant can get a realistic rent nothing can be done to sustain business in Port Washington.

The Fred was aways in attendence most of the time I sat on the board, BUT Mr Pollack has two famous statements "NO"& "You can't do that". Enough said.

Call or email the Town of North Hempstead and tell them you don't want Fred Pollack on the BID. It is very important that they hear from the people who object to this appointment.
