    Why can’t we force the town of Huntington to present this Avalon project at the next public election and let the people who actually live in Huntington vote on this?

  • new board?

    what did they put all the same people in a hat and pull names?

    Where are all the real people? Why is it alwasy the same tired boring cronies? Same worn out, old, ideas. No wonder nothing changes.

  • Crazy

    Bunch of Bankers, Brokers and Insurance Agents who somehow find it their right to make a public comment of support for Avalon Bay. Now you know exactly what businesses to write to and tell them you will no longer support their services. All righty here in town, Wachovia Bank, Edward Jones, Emerald, Community Bank, Gunderman – the list goes on.
