Letters to the Editor: East Rockaway, Lynbrook
(Page 6 of 6)
County Executive Ed Managno tried to get this fixed through the lawsuit but did not win. We need our legislators to grow some backbone and work in Albany to get this fixed. Until that happens, it makes sense for the county to settle the grievances expeditiously. This timely settlement policy is just one example of Mangano’s common-sense approach to the county’s problems.
The fundamental problem in Nassau County is that taxes are too high. Mangano and the Republican majority Legislature have frozen property tax rates to address the problem and eliminated the Suozzi-enacted fuel tax, which has already saved Nassau homeowners over $100 million. If other jurisdictions, especially the schools, would freeze property taxes, we would be well on our way to a more prosperous county.

I would like to comment on the vile, disgusting and there aren't words to describe how awful it was mailer that we all got which crossed the line from politics to slander. What a shame that some people thought a certain person couldn't win on his merits so they or he used to unfortunate death of a child to smear his opponent. I won't jump in the mud with these thugs, they know who they are. Playing "who me?" Doesn't work, we've seen your fingerprints on elections before. All I can say is it disgusted me and I hope all moral people will stand up and say "enough already". Win on your record, not on how deep in the garbage you can burrow.

Francis Becker and Mangano should know everything there is to know regarding unmitigated disasters, they approved every budget submitted in by Tom Gullotta, they assisted in driving Nassau County into bankruptcy.

Wouldn't it be interesting to see a support letter of these guys by someone whose livelihood does NOT depend on my taxes?
