Romney Visits Oyster Bay Thursday

Presidential candidate to attend back-to-back fundraisers in Muttontown and Old Brookville.

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign will stop in Oyster Bay Thursday night for two fundraisers. The former Massachusetts governor will stop in Muttontown and Old Brookville for a reception and dinner before moving on to Ohio.

Romney will travel to Old Brookville for the first fundraiser, held at the home of Elizabeth and Lee Ainslie at 5 p.m. The Ainslies, though not affiliated with any party, are active in North Shore open-space preservation, said Newsday Thursday.

TOBAY Councilman Chris Coschignano is reported to be a cochair of the event, along with Nassau Republican Chairman Joseph Mondello, author Nelson DeMille, and several other prominent current and former Republican officials.

Tickets to the Ainslies' general reception are $2,500, while each photo session with Romney will cost $10,000 per photo, said the report.

Afterward, Romney will dine at the home of Republicans Jodi and Robery Rosenthal in Muttontown. Robert Rosenthal is the former owner of the Islanders hockey club and currently runs an investment banking firm.

Photo receptions and dinner at the Rosenthals' will cost $25,000 per couple, with "VIP" tickets hitting $50,000 per couple, reported Newsday.

According to the report, contributions will only be deposited into the accounts of Romney for President, Inc., the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the National Republican Congressional Committee.

According to Politico.com, he will travel to Ohio Friday for a rally at Lake Erie College.

How can anyone Vote for a terrorist like Hussien Obama....Presidents back in the day were business men....Not concerned about public speaking and trying to appeal to every group...A president is a leader who does what he thinks is in the best interest of the general dumb public weather it is popular or not.....Start with deporting illegals who already broke the law, send money out of the country, and are just not immunized since birth like everyone else.....U have 6 children in a class of 25 on L.I. who have parents who pay school tax.....80% of the children are using resources and not putting back in,,,its a bankrupting system just like many other tax based companies....Hospitals, police, schools,,,The tax payer cant fill the gap any more and thats the bottom line...the taxpayer is so nice they will let their communities go bankrupt before saying boo about a minority group....

Would you have us bar them from public schools only to then support them on welfare for the rest of their lives because they are uneducated and unemployable? Those children didn't choose to enter the US illegally. Who could sentence them to illiteracy because of an offence they did not commit?
