Suffolk County Veterans Discount Program

Suffolk County is home to numerous brave men and women who have honorably served our country in the Armed Forces. Their commitment to upholding and defending the principles our nation is founded upon deserves the highest degree of respect and gratitude. That is why I am asking Suffolk County business owners to join me in giving something back to those who have given us so much.

Would you consider offering Veterans a small discount and signing up to be part of the Suffolk County Veterans Discount Program? By participating in this program, your business name will be displayed on the Suffolk County website, with your address and discount specifications. The nature of the discount that each individual business is willing to provide is at your discretion.

Contact my office for more information (631) 854-4500.

Survival Kit
 

Dear Constituent,

Our office has put together the enclosed “Survival Kit” for people in need of assistance in these tough economic times. It is geared towards the person who normally does not ask for help and might not know where to turn in order to receive it.

Stress can get to the best of us. This packet provides contact information for a wide range of agencies that you can reach out to in your time of need. Many different types of counseling services are offered.

Finding a job, let alone a good job, in this economy is hard. This packet gives information about resources you can utilize in your job search. If you need to boost your qualifications, there are places where you can take classes and improve your skills.

Lots of folks are working overtime, and don’t spend as much time with their families as they used to. Finding a good babysitter can be difficult. Some agencies offer referrals for childcare. If you don’t have enough time to help your kids with their schoolwork, tutoring and homework help classes are listed for your convenience.

What do you do when all of your money is going to pay your bills and taxes? Information about food pantries and health services are provided, as is information on rent and mortgage assistance, housing loans, as well as bill and tax assistance programs.

In these difficult times, there is nothing wrong with reaching out for a little assistance.

Hopefully, the information we have provided in this “Survival Kit” will help.

Long Island Tech Day!
 
 
August 12th was an exciting day for economic development in Suffolk County! Legislator Spencer was pleased to support the Long Island Tech Day, hosted by LaunchPad Huntington and egifter. The event showcased dozens of startups and entrepreneurs that are a critical part of our recovering economy. While at the event, Congressmen Steve Israel and Tim Bishop announced their proposed legislation that is designed specifically for small businesses called SAVE (Savings Accounts for a Variable Economy) for Small Businesses Act. The legislation, an idea conceived by Bob Fonti, the Chair of the Long Island Business Council, and Dr. Nathalia Rogers, a professor at Dowling College and director of their American Communities Institute, has garnered bi-partisan support as well as support from the business and labor communities. The initiative will help create more jobs, and move our local economy in the right direction. The leadership of Congressman Israel and Congressman Bishop on this issue is admirable as it is our small businesses that keep Long Island working!
