Walker (Deputy County Executive) cautioned that politics had derailed past attempts to build a new arena. "This has been the single most politicized issue for the past eight years," he said. "We asked for a stand-alone election to avoid the silly [political] season." I HATE DONT LIKE YOU ANTI-LONG ISLANDERS!!!! Sorry, lost my compsure...
