To the so-called Chester Agency Alum. I don't know who you are but you certainly have no idea of the insurance business that Chester Agency has handled and continues to handle for Long Island Development and Roz Goldmacher. We didn't handle her Workers' Compensation four years ago. If you checked with her current carrier there was never a problem with audits. As owner of the Chester Agecy neither I nor my staff have ever has problems with Roslyn Goldmacher. She is always pleasant and professional. I doubt you ever worked for Chester Agency.
Sounds like her insurance agent is kissing her a$$ too. God forbid they lose her business and the commission! Chester Agency should be boycotted from everyone that reads this too. Another grimy leeching insurance agent. Probably a Jew too, you know how they all stick together!

I've never heard of such nonsense! So the board thinks she's worth every penny? What does she do besides lay down for them? She "develops" Long Island? It's already way over developed! Is she just adding more businesses to the thousands of strip malls?

you gettin' up the ass!!!
...and here we have another comment from an ignorant, jerk. How dare you make such a comment. Perhaps you might have had a valid point to make but by making such a statement, it will be completely ignored. Do you really think that people put their religion on their resumes which ulimately increase their salary? It has to do with their education, experience, demand in the market for the job and what the employer is willing to pay. If you don't like the steriotype life you are living, try bettering yourself. Take some classes. Work a little harder and take pride in the end results. Perhaps you can raise your status and income rather than blaming others for your situation

Well educated? A law degree from Hofstra? Her resume would have ended up in the circular file at all the top law firms with that degree. It's a good thing she thought of this scheme to make the big bucks because the white shoe law firms would not have bothered even interviewing her fresh out of Hofstra.
Education is not just from a formal instituation. It's amazing how many people have law degrees but do not actually work as lawyers. Law school teaches a thought process. My comment about her education is more in line with she learned what she needs to know and uses that information to be productive.

Seems you have a real mental problem with religion, which has nothing to do with this. I think you also would have a problem with this also if it was a black or spanish, etc. person. Get your head out of the sand.
No, I'm not another overpaid jew.
YOU A S S _ me
This non-profit is big business.
Their are many high ups making more that this woman, but it is none of anyone's business.
EDUCATION!!! EDUCATION!!! EDUCATION!!!
Yes, It is a non-profit
group, and if you don't give a donation, that's fine. You give from the heart. The donation monies are worked into the books, and they file tax papers that they need such and such to run their facility, and the government covers so much of it. There are fund drives, people's wills, etc. Keep your pocket change. Somehow the money comes from somewhere. It's a Tax write off. And, I ain't taken all my loot with me. I give back to Society.
I don't expect anything back in return, just that my donation is used wisely.
I couldn't have said it better myself. Boo hoo for this guy. Thanks goodness the rest of the world doesn't support his thoughts on charitable donations. I guess he just likes to be on the receiving end.

I'm speaking of the Magestic firehouses that they build, there promotion dinners that cost tens of thousands of dollars; fire equiptment in excess of district needs; etc etc
Does the mere fact that they are volunteers shield them from being accountable and prudent with the tax dollar? Many people volunteer helping homeless and needy, which by the proximity to dangerous areas are putting their lives at risk. I do not hear them using it as an excuse to be wasteful with the monies they receive.
...and those guys deserve every cent and then some. They can have all the dinners they want and a glorious fire house to hang out in.

Are you for real!!! Do you think anyone who makes a living and is trying to protect their commission is Jewish? Open your eyes. Obviously, the individual who wrote the original message happens to like doing business with her. So what's wrong with them making a living also?

Sorry, no.
I don't think firefighters by virtue of their volunteer status should use tax payer funds for unlimited dinners, drinking and cavorting, and have "glorious" firehouses with fully stocked game rooms to hang out in. I don't think they should eat bread and butter and drink water while doing jumping jacks in their off time, but there is such a thing as using public funds responsibly and prudently.
Not lavishly and with reckless abandon.
This woman is GROSSLY overpaid.
If we want to talk about what people deserve to be paid, lets talk about the people who bust their butts but are UNDERPAID. Let's make sure places that employ people using public funds give everyone who works hard a LIving wage before offerring bloated salaries and benefits packages to figureheads.

Businesses take a beating on Long Island, it's logistical weakneses are made worse by the high cost of living and poor public transportation system. I don't anyone here on LI can really declare they have done much to lure large companies(Fortune 500) or can really boast that the small businesses have prospered. When you hear that total job growth over the course of a year is in 2000-3000 jobs for the whole Island is considered "good".

No taxpayer would willingly subsidize a fully stocked bar and game room, convention travel for family and acquaintances, and race cars in the garage...

yes, it was in the paper, newsday dare I say - they found it "cost effective" to ship jobs to the phillipines.and this new game they started? newsday rewards? only aimed to sooth the subscriber - the poor delivery person, gets nothing - and their gas goes up every day like ours. newsday is a rag, and will always be. they failed to make it in the new york city market, and then they tried a florida market....and if they weren't the only game on long island they would be out of business. let's hope a new broom sweeps clean and when it's sold we get the paper we deserve. read the long island press - it's free and more accurate.

I don't know what district you live in, but you won't find alcohol, convention travel, race cars, plasma tv's etc at mine.

We do have a 46" tv, purchased a few years ago at a steep discount thanks to PC Richards, a pool table that was donated, a dartboard that was donated, an old ping pong table, a soda machine with sodas for 50 cents.

I don't understand how you can collect fees or payment and still be considered not for profit. If this is true I would like to declare that i am doing my job not for profit and then not have to pay taxes.

GREED, one of the many reason this great nation is doomed to the same future as the fall of all great empires eventualy do.
She is only lining her pockets at the expense of the tax payers as many others are doing. She should, of course, be investigated as this is a non-profit business.Yeah, right!!!!!
