“One cannot assume that without prompt and effective post storm policies implemented by government that the business climate will be returned to normal in Nassau County and across Long Island,” Daly said. “Accordingly, this task force has one central mission. We are to provide elected officials with the information they need to construct and implement executive orders that protect the businessman and woman struggling to open their store, the entrepreneur who just lost his startup company, the tax bill that just arrived at the demolished, empty and dark home of a county resident. From our perspective, the real crisis has just begun.”
