Nassau to lose a lot if the Isles leave!!!

According to a Newsday article published tonight, a study done by Camoin Associates determined that Nassau County stood to lose 243 million dollars annually should the Islanders leave & if the Coliseum were to be shuttered it would take with it 2600 jobs as well as 104 million dollars in annual earnings.

I have been waiting for a while for something like this to be released & am happy they finally did it. So now not all but maybe even some of the people who are against the referendum & say just let the Islanders leave will realize what a long term impact having that attitude will have on the county & maybe change their thinking.
