According to BD Gallof the Nassau County Democratic Committee have sent out another email to people associated with them bashing the Coliseum referendum. This time they say that its not right to subsidize private profit with taxpayer money. They say that's the reason they oppose the plan!
They say the awful editorial from the daily news a few weeks back shows how Wang would make a killing on the plan and the taxpayers would essentially be screwed!
Lastly the most mind boggling part of the email is that they say Wang is a billionaire (which he isn't) and that Nassau County is a billion dollars in debt (which they aren't) & they say that Wang can afford to build a new Nassau Coliseum and we can't. They ignore the fact that he doesn't own the building & its not good to flush 350 mil down the toilet which he would essentially be doing if he paid for the building of a new building without getting ownership of it from the County.
Thanks to a great job by Dave, Nick Giglias newest co-writer on lettherebelighthouse we know that with all the complaining dems. are doing with regard to this, the projections they had done with regard to the Lighthouse were 30% higher then the ones Mangano has had done. So if Mangano & co's projections are rosy then what the heck does that say about those?
