Statement from LIA President Kevin S. Law on Nassau Coliseum

"Nassau County received two fantastic proposals to redevelop the Coliseum and unfortunately one of them had to lose but in the end Nassau County residents and all Long Islanders win because we will soon finally have a new state of the art venue for sporting and entertainment events. I commend County Executive Mangano for a transparent competitive process and congratulate Bruce Ratner and welcome him to the Long Island business community and I am confident Ed Blumenfeld will work with  Nassau officials and the local community to develop the remainder of the property at the Hub consistent with the economic development goals and strategies for our region."
