Oyster Bay is New York’s only municipality with a “junk bond” rating from Standard & Poor’s, according to Long Island’s “Newsday.”

Hart recently made headlines with a controversial campaign promise to erect a $1 million marble statue of musician Billy Joel outside Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Long Island.
