"I’m very proud of everything we’ve done, all of the entire team of people that have helped us really fight for the issues and I know we have the right issues. We were right on everything that we talked about from the taxes to the building department to the local issues like Harbor Homes and we fought with the residents. But you know what? We’re fighting against a machine; a very, very, very big machine that’s very well financed."

It's time for the unincorporated area of Port Washington to become a Village. At least you can deal with your neighbors when you need permits . So maybe you will pay more on your taxes but when you are a Village you will pay less to the town Much less. Get in touch with the Nassau County Villages Officials Association, if you need the number I'll be happy to give it to you.

All of Port Washington should be one city or village. It's ridiculous to have so many governmental entities in one community.

You sound like a bitter old narcissisit. Calm down and look around at our great town. Maybe Jon Kaiman will choose to run for County Exec, and get that joke of a politician Ed Mangano out of there. Great Job Jon!
