Riverhead experiences growth spurt (http://www.newsday.com/news/local/nassau/ny-licens0112932343jul01,0,426610.story - broken link)

You have to be kidding,..Newsday is trying to make us believe Long Island is Growing and People are staying,..far from truth. This is the truth:

NYS leads the Country in Migration, surpassing 2ND place by 50%.
Also:
According to the Long Island Index Report:
http://www.longislandindex.org/2009_report_key_findings.html
64% of people of Nassau County from ages 18 to 34 say, “They are somewhat to very likely to leave Long Island to a region with less property taxes.
Data supported by a survey done by the Siena Research Institute. Siena found that 11 percent of New Yorkers will move unless conditions improve and another 10 percent say they would like to move out “as quickly as [they] can.” http://www.buffalonews.com/home/story/683909.html
As of 2009, Nassau County's population is 1,306,533 people. Since 2000, it has had a population growth of -0.67 percent, while the rest of United States population increased 5.88%

Our uncontrolled and unnegotionable property taxes that have been outpacing our inflation rate by 300% in the last 15 years have caught up with us and we're tired.

These are the facts!

Actually incorrect. The original estimate for 2008 was the number you claimed, however the census bureau has revised the numbers for Nassau County and in 2008 had it at 1,351,625. Up by about 17,000 since 2000, but down 5,000 from 2004 1,356,867

I know their on the Riverhead town board,..I don't know much about Riverhead, except the fight for the Race Track.

I also understand the census that Newsday reported is very general. They don't specify who moved in and why,..but most importantly, they don't specify the migration of long time Island residence to other States.

Last week there was a report of School Budgets and percent of school budgets to School staff salaries,..it was reported as 66%.

Truth is,..the amount of Public levy and state funding accounts to 80%-85% of Budget towards Salaries/pension and Health benefits. Riverhead has 87.37% of total budget going to Salaries/pension and Health.
ClickThis and go to Expenditures.

Funny thing,..if you vote no to budget, it has nothing to do with the 87.37%,..they cut back on the 12.63%,..the money for your kids.

As of 2009,..just the way one reads this, but your correct.
I know the site well, and work with it.
Check this out:
North Carolina nearly added the population of Nassau County since 2000.
That's right,..NC had a pop. growth of about 1.2 million since 2000!

And that's the only State I checked, but basically,..while the US grew to about 8%,...Long Islanders are fleeing. What's your guess?

How, exactly, are teachers in the classroom not "money for your kids"? They're sort of the main element of schooling.

Suffolk's population increased, granted it was probably due to immigration (illegal and legal) but still.

Suffolk's population spike also had a lot to do with people being priced out of Nassau for that first home...or wanting more than a cape on 60x80. It's how I ended up out here.

Alexis,
Free health care for life, a full time pension of 8k to 16k a month and a Salary exceeded rate of inflation is a bit too much. We don't need Supers making 250k plus and for that matter, and don't need most of the adminstration. http://www.longislandschools.com/dis...-district.html

School budget votes have nothing to do with wage contracts. Example:
Levittown Schools saved 800k when their vote was failed,..leading to limited busing, not salary cuts.
