“I’ve seen the effect of unthinking development on a unique rural area – namely the South Fork of Long Island which used to have abundant farmland and unique wetlands but is now chock-a-block with ugly housing; not a farm to be seen and the wetlands almost totally destroyed – and I don’t want to see that happen here. If we don’t make an effort to preserve some of the peninsula’s uniqueness, everyone will regret it.”
