Polansky to Petrone: Try Something Different [VIDEO]

Huntington superintendent slams town supervisor after being excluded from Huntington Station Action Coalition to combat gang-related violence.

Petrone is unbelievable. He is putting together a coalition... Then what? Brass tacks, what are you going to do? Community organizers will fix this? It is pathetic. The Town Board is so out of touch, it is disturbing. If it were not for the special interest groups, Berland would have been voted out. 3/4 of Town Hall were hired on patronage favors, so they went out and voted.

Hes not just putting together a coalition, hes resurrecting one that was put together years ago, that was completely useless then. Thank God for Polansky, at least he shows he has the guts to say what needs to be said and point the finger in the right direction. As for the b.o.e. members, the only ones that showed any courage in the past, were Liz, Rich, Bill and occassionally John. The others are mere sheeple, that when handed facts about the wrong doings of our town council, would simply dismiss it as, not part of the b.o.e. job. What does it take to infuriate the rest of the people in this town? Does someones kid have to be gunned down in front of "their" house, for them to stand up and say "enough is enough"? Gotta love the Petrone camp, more of the same.

Go ahead Mr Polansky..point the finger..its ok ! Point it directly at Frank Patrone. If he stays in office there will be more than Huntington Station going down the tubes !!! We need more "Mr Polansky's" that will stand up and speak the truth and stop tip toeing around the obvious problems we have with the current town board ! It is a crime what they get away with!! PLzzzzz Frankie, go South!!

Why we will *always* love Jimmy P! Thank you for taking a stand on this issue that affects ALL town residents!! We miss you in South Huntington, but are so glad to have you as our neighbor to the north, especially where issues such as this are concerned.

South Huntington parents and Huntington parents need to united and all bombard the Town Hall meeting on 12/13 at 7pm! Our districts suffer from the same neglect from the same person. I think everyone should join the Greater Huntington Civic Group as a starting point, get informed and get organized to take back this town! Stand WITH Mr Polansky! I hope he calls all his buddies in the South Huntington BOE and gets them involved in this too. It's not about one district, it's about Huntingtonians! Petrone is standing in the way of this being a better town!

Yes, we miss you in S. Huntington, but so glad we still have you in Huntington! Please continue to speak up, Mr. Polansky. Honestly, we need you as our next town Supervisor.

Can you hear me? I'm standing at my desk applauding Polansky. Thank you for coming to Huntington (even at the expense of SHUFSD, where I have a large amount of friends who work there).

Mr. Polansky was my high school principal. He cleaned up our school and made in safer. Maybe the same can be done for our town. He is truly a great man and believed in all of us. His dedication to curses he believes in us truly amazing. Go Polansky!!!!

The next meeting of the Huntington Station Action Coalition is Dec. 16. Patch will have it covered.

Since the Friends of Huntington Train Station received money filtered through the Huntington Arts program as indicated on the website you post all the time I can understand your concern, Mrs D'Ambrosio for the funding to be returned to the ARts Program HOWEVER it is the least of our problems. I don't believe our Town Council members dancing in the Nutcracker is much of a response to these recent shootings. I do wish them well but honestly I find it tacky on Mrs Berlands part to support it by being in it. What's next? Do we vote in our new President via voting on the phone and having him preform on Dancing with The Stars? this takes Mrs Berlands need for photo ops to a whole new level.

Thank you Mr Polansky! Finally the leadership we need. I hope the BOE stands united and demands action from our Town Suoervisor not more lip service!!

Stay on subject please.
Kim December 06, 2011 at 09:31 PM
Thats fine but what does the nutcracker and arts program have to do with this article? If your going to remove my post then the other posts should go too. I only posted public info that she herself has posted in nauseam. I should at least be able to defend being called a liar, but I see your not taking that post down.
