Democratic hopeful Dean Hart called out his Republican opponent, Michael Montesano, for not passing legislation that would name a portion of a state road after the Long Island legend Billy Joel. Hart believes that he should take over Montesano’s seat on the New York State Assembly because he will correct this injustice. Hart even said he plans to pledge $1 million to construct a giant statue outside of the Nassau Coliseum when it reopens next year. Here’s the full story.
I can’t express how much I support this motion. Although I’m not from Long Island, I’m from New York and this is Billy Joel’s sanctuary. The man has only blessed our ears with his piano wizardry and hit songs for over forty years. I mean I guess that’s important, right? I bet Montesano has never seen Joel play at Madison Square Garden. He’s only shattered the record for most performances played there by a single artist and he continues to play at MSG at least once a month. It was one of the best concerts I have ever been to and if you haven’t gone, stop what you are doing and go buy tickets.
I’ll cut Montesano a little credit. He did try to get a portion of a road named after Joel, but it was shut down because Joel is still alive. I feel like there’s a saying for this. “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” That’s right, try harder! It’s time to give this living legend the honor he rightfully deserves.
If Hart gets this done, he should not only be elected to the New York State Assembly, but he should be the next president of the United States.
