As we write this the election is still a week or so away. Obviously, we do not know who the winner, or loser, is we know there will still be a great divide among those who voted, and those who didn’t.

Even so we are going to stick our neck out and outline a couple of thoughts we trust all of us can agree upon.

Let’s start with what seems like an easy proposition: no elected body should be able to pass any legislation that exempts the members of that body for the legislations impact. If lunches are not tax deductable or chargeable to the recipient, then Congress and all the members should be subject to the same rules. If the Affordable Care Act is applicable to the citizens then it should be applicable to all members of Congress.

Simple, huh?

Of course this means that the NY/NJ Port authority personnel and board should have to pay tolls like the rest of us. Maybe it would also mean that the plethora of Courtesy Cards issued by the various police agencies, benevolent associations, etc. should declared illegal. And off duty police, fire and public officials would have to obey the same traffic laws as the rest of us. (Maybe the new $105 surcharge on tickets in Nassau would thus not be needed)

You can fill in a number of additional examples at your leisure.

My second proposal is equally simple. No legislation local, state or federal should be allowed to contain any amendment or clause that is not directly related to the primary subject of the legislation… no more hiding a special swimming pool in a groundwater protection act.

Thirdly, any member of a legislative office found guilty of a State of Federal offense should lose their position in that body and lose their pension or benefits.

That’s it… when I think of it; these three items may be a bird’s eye view of what this election was all about anyway.

Another opening, another business, another look.

With all of the good things and good looks of Port, we are regularly reminded of the number of empty or underutilized commercial properties throughout our community.

While we would agree that there are few items that look worse than an empty storefront, we would have to say the opposite is also true… a new venture, a cleaned up or refurbished location is a great indication of a strong community… Beautiful!

We have been encouraged lately with a number of initiatives to assist and encourage merchants and property owners to improve the ambiance of their locations.

Yet, the most encouraging event is the implementation of a new look or a new opening. Recently, we have seen a number of these happenings.

Examples are The Music Store, Port Beer and Soda and Bareburger which opened recently, plus the BlueBird Café and the Craft Beer Cellar which are scheduled to open shortly. This is good news for locals who spend their money in the community. For visitors it adds to the attraction of Port, and for the rest of the merchant community it helps give a vibrant, growing and prosperous look to Port.

So, beginning with the August issue, the Port Washington Calendar will make every effort to identify and print information on upcoming openings and improvements… and other recent openings. We all have a stake in their success.
