Jeremy, The voters of the east end have ALWAYS voted in favor of ANY land preservation resolutions. The CPF was not done by the GFTEE by any stretch of the imagination. On the classroom time? Serious? For what we all pay in school property taxes, I would hope that the kids of Long Island are schooled in enviormental issues without the guidace of the GFTEE.

Hypocrites if you ask me. When I grow up (and get rich) I want to a liberal!

I am a big fan of the Group for the East End, because they protect all the things i love most out here - they make my drinking water safe by testing it and advocating to protect it - they're responsible for preserving many of the beautiful farm fields and vistas... they protect the osprey and the animal wildlife- they're the reason there aren't big box stores and skyscrapers in East Hampton... Yes - they used to be called Group for the South Fork - and then they got bigger. They need and deserve anyone who wants to swim in clean water and drink safe water's support. Sure - McMansions are eyesores. Sure SUVs are dopey. But every not for profit out here has to make money in the summer - and this not for profit serves everyone who likes to swim, fish and breathe!
