Sound Off: What is The Most Important Issue in This Year's Election?

Which issue will be on your mind as you cast your ballot Tuesday?

Long Islanders head to the polls on Tuesday to elect a host of county and town leaders. 

Here in Suffolk, voters will elect a new county executive, who will be tasked with solving a severe cash crunch. County lawmakers recently said they believe County Executive Steve Levy's 2012 budget proposal is short by more than $124 million.

All of the 18 seats on the County Legislature are up for grabs and voters will also cast their ballots for town supervisors and town board members. 

With that in mind, we want to hear from you. What is the most important issue in this year's election? Vote in the poll below and share your thoughts in the comments.

If the economy improves county government will be fine they rely to heavily on sales tax revenues until that there is not much they can do you can only cut so many jobs. believe it or not local government workers provide many essential services.

The best thing anybody can do at this point, get to the voting booths ASAP and vote these Lib's the heck off our tax rolls! Send them packing, take back our state, our town and watch how much money you save. Besides the black clouds will begin to fade away and sunny days ahead! You can't lose, it's the safest bet we have! No more of the same. It's the definition of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over yet expecting a different outcome. Stop it already!

No the economy is dead, and it's because the lib's have been hard at work destroying what is left of capitalism. So if the out of work, down on their luck, good citizens of our Island want to turn this ship around, they have to agree to smaller gov't. and conservative values once again.
