Well, according to recent quotes in an LI Press story it seems as though another Democrat has decided to play politics with the referendum. This time its Jay Jacobs who is the chairman of the Democratic party. He recently told the LI Press;
"if the taxpayers believe they will own anything other then an even higher tax bill, then I have a bridge to sell. The only thing the people of Nassau can count on as the truth is that the County is in a financial crisis but Ed Mangano and the Republicans want us to bail out a billionaire-by raising our taxes. But don't take my word for it... what Mangano and the Republicans are promising flies in the face of what the Countys own independent budget review office says."
So, once again you can add Jacobs to the list of Democrats who were for the Lighthouse but are against this. I truly think its disgusting how the politicians on the democratic side of the aisle are playing politics with this instead of doing whats right for the people of the County. It is evident when statements like this are made from the chairman of the party that they don't give a crap about any of us Nassau residents or the Islanders & that all they are concerned with is taking back the Legislature from the Republicans.
