Press Conference to Announce New Legislation to Prohibit Smoking at Athletic Fields

Recently, I held a press conference at Tri-Village Field in Greenlawn to announce new legislation that is aimed at prohibiting smoking at all Town-owned athletic fields. The legislation is scheduled for a public hearing on Tuesday, August 16 at 2pm to consider this proposed measure. I was joined by Suffolk County Legislator William “Doc” Spencer and local resident, Daniel Stratton.

I stated, “The goal of my legislation is to protect residents and their families from the health concerns related to secondhand smoke. If passed, this will extend my no smoking legislation to include playgrounds, beaches and athletic fields. My sincere thanks to Legs. William“Doc” Spencer for his support. And a special thanks to resident, Daniel Stratton for bringing this proposed code amendment to my attention,”

For a copy of this legislation or for more information, please call 631-351-3171 or send an e-mail to: MCuthbertson@HuntingtonNY.gov
