“Superstorm Sandy…a year later”

(Mineola, NY) - Legislator Carrié Solages (D-Elmont) remembers the challenges and devastation Superstorm Sandy created for his community, the county and the region, and today pledges to remain steadfast in his support for storm victims using all the resources available to his office.

Legislator Solages echoes the sentiments of Elmont resident Magaly Polo 2012 Dr. Carter G. Woodson Recipient and program coordinator for the Red Cross' Project Hope in The Rockways, who stated: “Today is a day to reflect back on the trauma of Super Storm Sandy and it is also a day to reflect on the solidarity that resulted in the community from the tragic experience.”

Polo continued that “everyone in the community was touched by Sandy directly and indirectly and it is important to not lose touch with the incident and we must remember that there are still families that are trying to recover.”

The lawmaker agrees there is more work to be done to help those families who remain impacted by the storm, and continues to emphasize that our community is still in the recovery phase and several areas are still in disrepair one year later. 

“We are humbled by the effort and commitment demonstrated by our partners and supporters as we continue the rebuilding process,” said Solages.



Nassau Lawmaker cautions the NY Governor

Carrie SolagesNassau 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.”

Today, we are talking to people about sustainable economic development, because we think it's important to show support for key issues that affect our community - like places in the Elmont for young professionals to live, shop and be entertained; like keeping families closer together and rebuilding the economic and social pillars of the community.
