Completing his first month with
the Village, Silberg says he has
been amazed at offers of help and
support from Freeport business
people and residents as he pro-ceeds
to visit every corner of the
community. "I plan on taking up
everyone's offer of assistance. In
my efforts to make the new Office
of Business Development suc-cessful
and making Freeport's
retail and industrial 'body' 100%
healthy, I'll more than need help
and advice; I'll depend on it."
Silberg reported that one of his
first goals has been to begin to
get the message out that, "I am
anxious to help anyone wishing
establish or expand a business i
Freeport. With the Federal funds
available and expertise of our
staff, Freeport can provide a
valuable service to businesses."

The Freeport Stabilization and
Affirmative Housing Task Force,
meeting last Friday, .issued a
statement regarding the recent
U.S. Supreme Court decision that
municipalities and homeowners
can sue real estate firms under
the 1968 Fair Housing Act. "This
is an important milestone for inte-grated
communities such as Free-port.
The Court has recognized
such communities can become
segregated by the action of some
real estate firms who illegally
'steer' black homebuyers to inte-grated
neighborhoods while at
the same time directing white
potential buyers elsewhere," the
Task Force stated.
The group expressed satifact-ion
that the practice of racial
steering has now come under
greater scrutiny. Prior to the
Supreme Court decision, "The
New York Times, on April 9,
published an article dealing with
the subject which was followed by
a segment on "60 Minutes," over
CBS-TV. The Task Force pointed
out, however, that these reports
focused on the Chicago area. "It
is our hope that the media will
now focus its investigative skills
on Queens and Long Island real-tors.
We and similar groups in
Baldwin, Wheatley Heights and
elsewhere have proven that racial
steering is rampant on Long
•Vowing to continue and expand
the testing program by which the
practices of the real estate in-dustry
in Nassau and Queens
Counties are monitored, Task
Force member and Human Re-lations
Director Michael Kirwan
added that reputable real estate
firms have nothing to fear. "All,
we desire is a healthy housing
market in which blacks and
whites are made aware of all op-tions.
We cannot maintain inte-gration
unless all communities
are open to-all prospective buyers
regardless of race.''
Freeporters who wish to assist
in the real estate testing program
or who have complaints about
racial steering, are urged to call
Kirwan at FR 8-4000.
