Vote is later today!!

Tomorrow the Nassau County Legislature will vote weather or not to put the 400 million dollar referendum on the ballot for August 1st for the Nassau County voters to decide weather or not they would like said 400 million dollars to be spent on building a brand new Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum as well as a minor league ball park.

The meeting of the legislature starts at 1PM tomorrow however it is unknown where the Coliseum is on their agenda so we could be facing a situation like last week where it was over 3 hours before they started talking about the Coliseum.

With a majority republican legislature it is expected that the referendum will be voted to be on the ballot for 8/1. After discussing some amendments proposed by democrats they will have the vote.

The meeting is open to the public, its at the Nassau County Legislature office which is at 1550 Franklin Avenue in Mineola. I intend on attending tomorrow wearing an islander t-shirt so if you go come over and say hi. Hopefully the Coliseum is first on their agenda because I don't intend on sticking around if it isn't.

Quick note: According to the save the Islanders now facebook page which was created by a group led by Brian M Rosenberg who was the moderator at the rallys two weeks ago says there will be a rally tomorrow at Borellis on Hempstead turnpike. They didn't say a time but I figure around 12:00 o'clock at the latest it would start considering as stated above the legislature meeting starts at 1 PM.

Hope to see you there
