ill attend and ask tough questions like: why raze the downtown area without tenants? you cant find anything better to do with $3.5 mil? how will you create tax incentives to keep stores/restaurants from leaving - incent new ones to arrive? Is anyone actively recruiting retail and restaurants to School st? Whats up with the movie theater? Why do our elected townfolk make so much money and do so little? Do we really need all those auxiliary police cars? Whats the story with the LIRR? how come the waterfront hasnt been developed yet? Is it true that the current owner has 12 years to build without having to pay a cent? Why isnt there a better way to commute via water? Have you looked at non luxury yachts for the ferry? How are you, Mr. new mayor, different from the old mayor? They say you don't need the money - so what's your plan? Am i just missing a website that has what you stand for? or does it just not exist? How do you really feel about section 8 housing in Glen Cove? why would it be a bad thing if the places are built nicely and well maintained? The list goes on...

Hi Leslie, Can you provide us with the answers as to when you were asking these questions to the outgoing Mayor?
Leslie Schwartz December 30, 2013 at 11:49 AM
I didnt live here then - i cant find anything about the old mayor on the web either. And he certainly didnt get anything done that i can find - other than increase salaries and spend all the city council meetings voting on salary increases.

Leslie, just remember that this is the swearing in of the new Mayor and Council members. It's not a time to stand up and start a debate. If you want to voice your questions, opinions, OR SOLUTIONS you should come down to the City Council meetings. The Inauguration is a time to welcome the new Mayor & new and returning Council members into their positions as leaders of our City.

I couldn't attend but I learned that the new mayor got the biggest round of applause when he said right off the bat that he was going after illegal housing and he didn't care if that meant going after supporters and friends. I was told that up front applauding like crazy was one of the biggest slum landlords in GC and a friend of the Republicans and the mayor. Does he know something we don't.
