In other Lighthouse Project news, New York State Governor David A. Patterson will hold a press conference at Nassau Coliseum TODAY at 11am giving his full support and backing of the Lighthouse Project. A little over a month ago, Patterson assigned his top people to the project so the State could help out in any way possible.

At 11 a.m. on Monday, July 27, New York State Governor David A. Paterson will hold a press conference at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum to address the significance of the Lighthouse Project. Principals Charles B. Wang and Scott Rechler, Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi, and Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray will join the Governor at the event.

The Governor’s press conference is the first time he is publicly sharing his stance on the project. It comes at a critical time for the Lighthouse, as a public hearing on the project is going to be held on August 4.

The conference will be held outside the box office at the Coliseum.

If you can make it out to the Coliseum today to show support for the Lighthouse Project and the New York Islanders, please do! Unfortunately I am working up in Huntington this morning and cannot get down to Uniondale.
