Poster - We're Fed Up With Excuses!!!!

Sachem Quality of Life's poster blaming an unsafe environment for children, falling property values, and the disintegration of the community on an "invasion of illegal aliens," questioning the willingness of government representatives to address the situation. The poster also lists email and mailing addresses, and information about their cable television show.

According its statement of philosophy and mission, Sachem Quality of Life was founded as a response to "government, by their action and/or inaction, [having] allowed the quality of life in our Brookhaven communities to disintegrate by allowing 'open air' hiring halls on our streets and overcrowded slum housing to propagate in our communities."
