Tea Party Patriots Join Freeport Citizens Protest
Members of Long Island Tea Party groups joined with residents of Freeport to protest the mayor’s plan to locate a new incinerator in the village to burn waste trucked out from New York City.
Dozens of Freeport citizens were unable to enter the packed meeting room and congregated on the steps and sidewalk outside.
Bryan Korman of the Rockville Centre Tea Party Patriots writes:
This quality of life issue would effect every resident on the south shore of Long Island with parades of garbage trucks on Sunrise highway, and hundreds of garbage barges floating through our waterways.
Mickey Clark also of the RVC Tea Party said:
We were contacted by residents and business leaders of the Freeport area as well as residents and business leaders from Villages contiguous to Freeport to help in opposing the construction and placement of an “Incinerator” in Freeport whose purpose would be to “BURN NEW YORK CITY’S GARBAGE.”
