Outrage in Mineola

There are no words to describe the tone deaf action of the new Nassau County Legislature in voting itself and its officers a huge pay increase as their first major act!

Voting yourself a 42% pay raise when you haven’t demonstrated at all that you can perform the tasks that the people elected you to get done is the epitomy of hubris.

If they had waited until they had trimmed the size of county government, had gotten out of control spending under control, had reduced taxes to stimulate business, then we might not have objected.  But they have done none of these things.  Yet they think they deserve a raise?

This is why we need to nominate our own candidates for office.  You just can’t trust the Nassau County Republican machine.

There is a protest and news conference taking place right now outside the Legislature’s offices.  We will report on it as reports become available.

Ed Mangano should speak out against this outrage!

More here, here and here.

    Republican/Democrat, makes no difference. They will feel the wrath of the Tea Party/9-12 movement this fall.
    “We can do better-Yes we can!”

    I TOTALLY AGREE. WE NEED TO SET UP A PROTEST AND LET SCHMITT KNOW THAT HIS DAYS ARE NUMNERED. WE CAN NOT TOLERATE THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOR AT THE TAXPAYERS EXPENSE.
