Ha! Ms. Whitty continues to completely AVOID the true fundamental problem plaguing the GH community. Non-affordable housing as well as the dumping of sex offenders (caused by greedy, could care less investors who buy up property from citizens who can't continue to afford their homes) is all a result of one of the root problems. GH has the HIGHEST property taxes than any other working class community on LI. Sadly enough, this is self impossed. An all black fire department created in the 1950's to address an issue that no longer exists in reality, but only in the small minds of a few. Ms. Whitty, although not financially contributing herself to this MONSTER of a TAX burden, insists on supporting the UNSUSTAINABLE fire district to the bitter end. Regardless of the fact that the VOLUNTEERS can serve their beloved community through a larger surrounding district and join the other half of the GH residents who do not reside within the boundary lines of the GHFD, she has refused to put her pride aside for the well being of the community. This article is bogus as far as I am concerned. She does not have the best interest of her community at heart. She has a lot of growing up to do and she would do her community a lot more good by stepping "out of the way". It's time she apologizes for her inability to see things through unbias eyes and for conveniently bending the rules as she pleases. The only thing worse than a man with a huge EGO is a woman with one.
