DeStefano Rejects Governor’s High-Rise Plan

Assemblyman Joe DeStefano (R,C-Medford) addresses Gov.Hochul’s Housing Compact Proposal

”Throughout 2022, Long Islanders raised their concerns over any proposal that forced more housing into our suburban-style neighborhoods. Overworked emergency services, overcrowded schools, overtaxed sewage systems and more traffic than ever before were just a few of the points we raised against such a proposal. But the governor has dug in her heels with this plan and has expressed a willingness to supersede local authority to get it done. It’s absolutely the wrong way forward and will leave Long Island struggling to keep its head above water.”
