You can make a difference. Contact your legislators.
Be heard and spread the word.
Your voice can make a difference. Email, call, utilize social media, and let these politicians know your community will not be dumped on. Casinos do not belong in Nassau County, they need to find a better way to balance their budget.
Register to vote...and vote
Nassau County Legislators show little interest in the concerns of the host neighborhoods, Floral Park, Elmont, Bellerose, etc, because historically we have shown low voter participation. Prove to legislators how strong our voices can be. Understand the power of unity. REGISTER to vote BEFORE March 4. Then VOTE in local elections and show our legislators your voice will be heard both locally, and in their districts. Election day in Floral Park is March 15th, 12 noon to 9:00 pm. Download and print the registration form here.
Attend a meeting
Our legislators need to know that this movement is not isolated to a small number of vocal opponents, they need to see that thousands of constituents want to be heard. Arrive early, sign in, be seen (bring a sign), be heard.
