Ed Mangano Starts Cutting Government Spending
The newly elected Nassau County Executive revealed today his plans to fill the budget gap.
With the repeal of the onerous home heating tax, imposed by the previous Democrat executive and legislature, other ways of balancing the county revenues against the county expenses had to be found. Ed Mangano laid out a series of budget cuts and personnel reductions to cut expenses and bridge the gap.
While more specifics about the cuts will be provided in the future, we think he has taken a giant step forward in breaking the county’s propensity to tax, tax, tax.
