Good idea ...

"We've all experienced the feeling that government agencies work in silos. The Partnership for Sustainable Communities is a critical initiative to enable HUD, DOT and EPA to work in a purposefully coordinated way."

This is a small example of the type of project contemplated in the One Long Island series of ideas and good for Long Island.

One Long Island also contemplates a"modular" approach within the "meta" approach so that programs of this type have common links to all other Long Island based initiatives.

In this way, we build a long term dynamic and sustainable model for Long Island.

Thanks to the Nassau County Legislature ...

... for unanimously appointing me a member of the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency today.

I accepted of course ....

The Long Island Regional Planning Council, with whom I've been talking with for some time regarding some of the "One Long Island" concepts, is I believe, in a unique position to "bring it all together" for the benefit of Long Island.

They are taking a unique, dynamic approach which if executed properly will be highly successful.

I'm happy to play a small part in this forward looking plan.
