Nassau Coliseum Vote
August 2, 2011 by staff
The referendum and 400 million to be used to renovate the Nassau Coliseum and the construction of a stadium for minor league baseball in place, is getting a special election today by Nassau County.
The premises were surveyed at Salk Middle School, Gardiners Avenue Elementary School and Broadway Elementary East in order to get an idea of?? How they would vote. Residents who were willing to express their opinions generally divided in the referendum.
“I think it’s important to have a space in Long Island,” said Jim Wantagh, who voted for the project. “It will create jobs. For an extra 60 and a year, I think the change will be more.”
Many supporters of the project cited his desire to keep the islanders as the reason behind their vote. “My children and my husband are fans of very large islands,” said Sheryl Wantagh. “They want to [keep going to the games].”
Levittown resident Ryan Murphy said he believes the project could help the local economy. “It would be a shame not to have [the islanders] around,” he said. “I think it would be bad for the economy of Long Island [if left]. This project will create jobs and bring a lot of business. It would be better to have it for them not being here.”
Those against the project also had a variety of reasons to vote for him. A woman who voted in Gardiner was upset with the price tag. “I’ve been here 40 years and I have no money,” he said. “Not worth it.”
Another critic of the project said he was concerned that the sand does not attract fans of the islands. “The fact of building a pretty seat does not mean someone is going to sit there, if my team,” he said. “This province is a mess. I’m tired of paying for it.”
