I wonder if the voters in Nassau County get to see a ledger showing the ratio of short and long term jobs to potential taxpayer indebtedness before voting on this arena proposal.

Siting the new arena in the same location will not bring any more money into the community as there really aren't many businesses that benefit directly from NVMC at its present location. Had they relocated to old Gruman Bethpage property or the Pilgrim State site, new businesses (bars, restaurants and other entertainment venues) might have been built up around it.

If I lived in Nassau, I'd vote no.
