@ltsunis Again, that is something we will have to deal with when we come to it.
@cjm427 The people have spoken. They want it privately funded. I can't force companies to build something
===> @cjm427 If no one comes forward and wants to build a coliseum and keep the Islanders here there is nothing else I can do.
@cjm427 The people of Nassau are first and foremost. They always have been and always will be.
===> @eddevil24 I can't really speak for what the Islanders will or will not do. I'm sorry
===> @nyifancentral This is not a RFP request. We just want ideas submitted so we can create the RFP. The 12th is a loose deadline
@HockeyRanter I understand and that is why we want all proposals. The day of the critic is over. You are either helping or your not.
@cjm427 They were not a pawn but they aren't everything. We lose not only them but the $ that building generates. We need to make that money
===> @cjm427 The critics have said for weeks that the whole project could be privately financed. Now is the time for them to come forward
@cjm427 If I demand a coliseum and no proposals come forward at all we're is no better shape. It's time to move forward
@EFMathieu Thank you for your confidence
===> @eddevil24 A new arena is something I prefer but, no, it is not a must.
===> @cjm427 Its up to the people who make the proposals. If anyone proposes a privately financed arena we will listen. I want the Islanders here
@The_Resonator I am calling on everyone who said that they have a private sector solution for the Hub to come forward as soon as possible
===> @BM_Dubbs @jayjacobs28 I am will to sit hear any proposal. If someone has a private sector solution, they need to bring it forward now
===> @cjm427 I want the Islanders to stay. Critics claim that there are privately financed solutions. Now is the time for them to bring them
@HockeyRanter Believe me, that is the last thing we want. However, we need to redevelop this land so we will be entertaining all proposals
===> @bigwaltdiesel I personally want to see an arena built and the Islanders kept but we are not requiring that, no
===> The day of the critic is over. We are now accepting all proposals for a privately funded hub redevelopment plan yfrog.com/gyq4cxufj
