Letters: Islandwide partnership

Partnership worksCounty Executives Steve Levy and Edward Mangano should be applauded for their initial willingness to work together to address regional issues ["Working together," Opinion, Dec. 23].

Supporting key transit investment projects, like the Third Track and double- tracking the Ronkonkoma line, as well as channeling funding to municipalities willing to promote smart growth and develop in a more sustainable manner, would be good first steps.

Presenting a united front on these issues will show that the region is willing to adapt to meet the economic, environmental and quality-of-life issues of the 21st century.
