OYSTER BAY DEMOCRATS RESPOND TO REPORTS OF ELEVATED RADIUM UNDER BETHPAGE SCHOOL
“The ‘Bethpage Plume,’ has been a black eye in our community for too long. And, only until recently, have elected officials been taking the issue seriously, as opposed to tossing it around like a political football. In response to most recent reports regarding elevated levels of radium under Central Boulevard Elementary School, we are calling for expediency in containing and cleaning up the Bethpage Plume. Because while the immediate threat of recently discovered Radium will be debated by a host of stakeholders, on every level of government, there is simply no excuse to continue stalling on the actual work of cleaning up the contamination that we all know and fear.”
