Jon-Jon all I can say is Roslyn Country Club, Why?

Mr. Kaiman Lets Talk about the Roslyn Country Club!

Jon Kaiman, you can not continue to pick and choose which community in North Hempstead. You have been in office for eight years and the Harbor Homes-Cowbay communities have seen nothing as far as your "Shared Vision" from 2008. Change is on the horizon this November 8th. Our community will be out in full force to send you a message. And if by chance and a miracle you do remain in office, be preapared because we are not going away.

We've been bombarded with non stop hostility from the Hands of Change Civic Association. I understand Harbor Homes should be entitled to your park, and I believe that the town needs to expedite this process. However, Supervisor Kaiman represents more than just Harbor Homes. We've heard enough of this issue along with people complaining about the Roslyn Country Club. Are there no other parks in port for your children to play in. They don't have to hang around on Port Boulevard when playgrounds at local schools and churches are open. Give it a Rest and bring it up after the election. I have seen nothing but good occur in PW and in the Town as a whole (besides the park situation). This is why I am voting straight DEMOCRATIC tomorrow.

@William Stark, please if you would list ANY changes that TONH has created or done for the community of Harbor Rd./Cowbay? We have been begging for Stop signs so traffic can stop speeding pass. We have asking for the return of our park so our children have a safe place to play, and won't need cab fare to get there. The only reason you are stating that the Hands of Change Civic Association is "hostile" is because as a communty we have challenged the board to start recognizing that WE are here, and we are NOT going away. We have been example's of true professionalism and you know it. I await your reply back with your list of "good deeds". And that's why we are voting for "Change!"

Thats all well and good, but I absolutely hate all of the hostile negative ad's sent out by the Republicans which paint the supervisor and councilman pollack as the enemy. It is each and every day that I see a new democratic sign slashed and replaced by a Lee Tu sign or a degiorgio sign. I am just tired of hearing everything about the park. I understand that your community has been neglected in certain area's and that is your right to protest the town board. However, people must understand that Harbor Homes isn't the voice of the town. The FACT is that the overwhelming majority support this administration and its good works which include 311 and project independence. There are more parts to PW and the TONH than Harbor Homes.
Stacy Brown November 08, 2011 at 08:48 PM
@William excuse me! but you accused "The Hands of Change Civic Association" of bombarding "YOU" with hostility sorry non-stop hostility. Now you are complaining about negative ads towards your Democrat board memembers running for re-election and the destruction of "Their" signs. Are you still blaming The H.O.C.C.A for that too? You can't take the fact someone other than you has an opinion on this election and your mad because it goes against everything you want? Well if the "negativity" as you put has had one impact of making a voter think about who they are casting there vote for, than I would be unhappy as you are now, but since I am loving this campaign. Stop pouting and being a baby, and DO NOT accuse the H.O.C.C.A of doing nothing more than fighting for our small part of the community. Too bad you are tired of hearing about Harbor Homes.....as much as you may not like it, is a tough nut to chew, deal with it. I have lived in Port Washington for over 45 years and I have as much right as the rest of the community to speak up when things are wrong. And things are wrong, that's why we endorse and are making the change!!!!!
Stacy Brown November 08, 2011 at 08:59 PM
@William you couldn't come up with that list either. How about all of the newly paved cross walks around town. How about the lights on Port Blvd., but non-existent by Harbor Homes and Harbor Road, and Cowbay but once you hit the Tennis academy all the light you want. Do you stop and roll as others at the stop sign by Cowbay? because you DO NOT see the pretty cross walk, or the Stop sign which is way to small, or the non-existant white line which would indicate stopping, but hey we can call 311 when a child on his bike, or a senior citizen is struck down while trying to cross as the speed demons just gun it faster past the stop sign. You certainly bring up some valid points, please keep them coming.
Stacy Brown November 10, 2011 at 04:01 PM
@William Stark, I would like an apology for the false accusations you made on this thread as to the so called hostility, (which is non-existant) made to the Hands of Change Civic Association, and for you to comment on facts and NOT hear say, and I thought's and assumptions.
Pam Robinson (Editor) November 10, 2011 at 05:09 PM
Everyone, lets keep it civil, please. Thank you.
Stacy Brown November 10, 2011 at 05:56 PM
Who isnt being civil?
William Stark November 10, 2011 at 06:11 PM
You mad Bro?
Donna Rice November 10, 2011 at 07:00 PM
Pam - I am wondering why you posted what you did after Stancy's comment and not after others? I see other messages from "Nassau Taxpayer" on other articles and you say nothing. So I am just wondering why you pick to jump into this conversation and not others.
Pam Robinson (Editor) November 10, 2011 at 07:06 PM
It was addressed to everyone, as you can see. It wasn't aimed at one particular person or another.
Donna Rice November 10, 2011 at 07:15 PM
Yes, Pam, I can see that you address it to everyone. But you did not answer my question. You see I noticed that Stacy made the last three posts before your comment SO...why then.
Pam Robinson (Editor) November 10, 2011 at 07:18 PM
Because I happened to be reading this particular story and noticed the comments were getting heated. There's nothing more to it than that.
Sol Nolan November 10, 2011 at 07:33 PM
There you go Donna! Take your aggression after losing out on Ms. Pam Robinson - a regional editor for Patch.com. Bahaha.
Donna Rice November 10, 2011 at 07:45 PM
Sol - Lee Tu may have lost the election but I could not be more proud of everything accomplished by debating the issues. Pam - I think you should scold Sol. He is not being civil at all. And Sol go back to your job with Jon Kaiman and tell him almost 50% of the people don't think he should be in office.
Stacy Brown November 10, 2011 at 09:00 PM
@Pam, there is nothing heated on my part. You see William accused The HOCCA of being hostile, and I asked him how? As you can see he has not commented because his accusation was false, and he may feel a little bad for making such a harsh and unfounded statement. I asked for an apology in which we deserve one! My facts were simple and to the point. I expected a simple "I'm sorry" for speaking against an organization that he has no idea on what we are about, but he may feel free to contact me and I would like to invite any all to take part in one of our meetings.
Jason November 10, 2011 at 09:02 PM
MR. Newsday Please! go back to work.......................
Sol Nolan November 10, 2011 at 09:07 PM
Yes Donna I did work for Newsday! but sold myself to Kaiman................
Sol Nolan November 10, 2011 at 09:12 PM
I Love Jon Kaiman So Much! He is the best thing ever to happen to me. I was never a very good reporter anyway................
Sol Nolan November 24, 2011 at 01:54 PM
Patch allows people to create the same user name? That's a shame. Silly Patch
