Nassau Lawmaker cautions the NY Governor

Nassau Lawmaker cautions the Governor a proposed Belmont Soccer Stadium would create an economic void that harms Elmont and all of western Nassau County
(Mineola, NY) - Nassau County Legislator Carrie' Solages (D-3rd District) today cautioned New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo that plans to create a semi-professional soccer stadium on the grounds of Belmont Park in Elmont do not meet the needs of the surrounding community of hardworking families seeking to protect and strengthen their quality of life.
In a letter to the Governor the lawmaker states, “In an era when Big Sports is about huge profits and franchise deals, Elmont seeks something other than being the gateway to a corporate soccer stadium. The public relations blitz currently assaulting our neighborhoods touting the alleged benefits of a stadium fail to acknowledge the reality that Elmont would receive minimal benefits from a sports arena. A stadium would neither strengthen our real estate values nor generate neighborhood economic growth in Elmont. A stadium would, however, create an economic void where the real benefits are found inside the stadium’s gates and among the absentee investors who would enjoy millions in profits.”

Michaelle Solages Talks to Elmont Online
Last Updated ( Saturday, 27 October 2012 10:25 )
Michaelle Solages has been meandering in and about the newly formed 22AD all of her life but these days she is focused on personally delivering campaign materials and listening to residents and business owners talk about key issues in the community. Michaelle is a relatively new voice in Elmont politics and is the Democratic candidate for State Legislature. Her opponent, Sean Wright, Republican is also new to Elmont politics.
As Ms Solages and I sat across the table at a local restaurant she spoke of her heritage and biography “I am a lifelong resident of Elmont and the daughter of Haitian immigrants”, she said. “Elmont is getting to know me … the community knows I am a fighter for what I believe…” I got the sense as we talked that “fighter” is not the word that best describes Ms Solages. She is more of a “determined advocate”. Her style is more collaborative than confrontational more honey than stick. “I like to forge cooperation where possible”, said Solages.
