Mangano Answers My Question
I know that you said that if there wasn't enough space at the hub, a new arena for the Islanders could become part of the Belmont plan. My question is why the Islanders part of the plan now and why isn't there a hard push for this project at this time?
Ed ManganoAll options are on the table when it comes to keeping the Islanders here in Nassau County. I am committed to creating jobs at the Hub, in Belmont, and throughout Nassau County. My administration continues to pursue all options to retain the Islanders in Nassau County. Clearly, negotiations in the media have not produced results. The County will announce new plans for the Hub in the coming weeks.
