The Issues We Face
There are many issues affecting
the community of South Yaphank
as well as neighboring
Many of these issues are
controversial and some can be very
polarizing but they do affect the
quality of life of the residents and
must therefore be addressed.
While there are no "quick fixes", we
try to remain vigilant and to stay
abreast of current developments and
situations. We focus on facts
and we pride ourselves on that.
We do not allow rhetoric, rumor or
hearsay to guide our actions and
because of that we have earned a
great deal of respect from the
various governmental and
non-governmental entities with which
we interact as well as from the
decision-makers who represent them.
his approach may lack
excitement and sometimes may
seem slow or ineffective, but we
have learned through the years
that thoroughness and
intelligent interaction is far
more successful in the long run
than emotional recklessness.
Many decision-makers have come
to accept (and have often
stated publicly) that if
SYCA says it, it must be true
and that validates our efforts.
