Stay On Long Island

Long Island communities invest fortunes in educating young people.

Unfortunately, Long Island sees little return on these investments as most of its college graduates are forced to migrate to other states in search of jobs and affordable housing.

Seeking to stem Long Island's "Brain Drain" is a new Islip-based grassroots group called Stay On Long Island. The group seeks government action to spur the development of both better paying jobs and lower-cost housing.

Suffolk County Legislator Ricardo Montano introduces the group at the Suffolk County Legislature at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow, November 27th. The group also holds its first public meeting at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, November 29th, at The Suffolk Coummity College's Brentwood Campus.
