Town of Hempstead Redistricting Meeting. The League of Women Voters of Nassau County spent the better part of the past year involved with the legislative redistricting process in Nassau County.

We are now focusing on redistricting in the Town of Hempstead. We believe strongly that what is needed is a transparent process, with districts that are contiguous, reasonably compact and as fair and as representative as possible of communities of interest.

We ask residents of the Town of Hempstead to attend the hearing scheduled for Tuesday, April 9th at 10:30am at Hempstead Town Hall (Nathan L. H. Pavilion) in the Village of Hempstead, to show support for having a second minority/majority district.

If you cannot attend, please contact Supervisor Murray and your town Councilperson at  516-489-5000 and let them know how you feel on this issue.

CITIZENS CAMPAIGN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT EVENT ALERT: The 2013 "Water We Going To Do?" Forum. Join LI environmental leaders for the launch of an island-wide campaign to protect and restore declining water quality We are pleased to announce that Citizens Campaign for the Environment, Long Island Pine Barrens Society, Group for the East End, and The Nature Conservancy have come together to invite you to "Water We Going To Do?," the launch of a Long Island-wide campaign to protect and restore the decline of water quality. Long Island has been designated as a sole-source aquifer region by the U.S. EPA. This means that 100% of our drinking water supply comes from underground. Unfortunately, water quality is threatened by pesticides, nitrogen, VOC's, and other contaminants. We need to come together to protect drinking and surface water now and for future generations. We hope you can join us for this upcoming forum.

Register today at http://www.citizenscampaign.org/forms/water-we-going-to-do/2013/

This forum is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Please register by April 15.
