For years, like many residents of Patchogue I have watched from the sidelines as our elected officials carried the ball and made a couple of good plays. But, then they started to throw the game to the bookies (developers) and lost sight of the ball (residents).
My question is: How many apartments and condos does Patchogue need? I say no more. Folks, look around Patchogue, we have more than our fair share. I heard Patchogue is the Queen of the south shore. Well, if we continue down the path of our elected officials we will be the "Queens" of the south shore. I think Patchogue Village can be the Pearl of the South Shore with proper marketing. We have some of the finest restaurants on Long Island, we have a beautiful theater on Main Street. We are the gateway to Watch Hill and Davis Park. Come and visit Patchogue Village the "Pearl of the South Shore" stay for awhile and visit our waterfront, restaurants and theater. I'm sorry I got carried away....
So, I am for change. We need fresh ideas and new leaders in our village. So come March 20th, if the residents of Patchogue Village want the same old crap than so be it. But if you want to see a fresh start then... think of YOU the "Resident" first. I remember a motto when I was president of Westhampton Rotary. "Service above Self" is what's needed in Government.
And, "that's what I'm thinking".
