I guess this means that unions have another year to bilk money out of the pockets of hard working earners?
Way to rip-off the people and hold them hostage you should be proud to win such an election! The work you do for society is a true testament to your moral judgment.

You are a dipchit. It's public service that runs this county and provides necessary services. You're from a cesspool of boneheads and has never seen sacrifices.

"Felice, a six year incumbent..."

"Saobasto and Felice, once allies, first clashed last year when the union president removed her as one of the officials who received full time release from county duties to do union work."

What a racket - being on the county payroll, not doing anything constructive for the taxpayers of the county and getting county benefits to boot. How about letting the union pay these salaries and not the taxpayers?

It's the taxpayers who pay the salaries and benefits. Just in case you hadn't noticed, LI unemployment and foreclosures are skyrocketing. Just thought you might be interested.

I guess, instead of seeing three people standing around one shovel; we'll now see six again. Move along, nothing to see here.

When everyone in the private sector is being forced to make concessions or being laid off, whey are these union workers any different????? And they try to make Levy look like the bad guy. At least he is trying to save the county some money. More than I can say for Felice and the union workers.

They are convinced that the $150K cops, with $100K pensions after 20 year,$100K teachers, with $80K pensions after 25 years, and 98% of the LIRR retiring on $100K per year, plus their whole host of other fat benefits, like heavily subsidized health insurance for life, don't contribute to the problem.

They think they are entitled to this money and benefits from the taxpayers. Its the Union Monkey mentality.

By all means! Pass me that shovel....
Got nothin else to do, seein as how civil service closed their eyes when my position was unjustifiably phased out.
So yea, I have plenty of time to either watch you not shovel, or I can grab that shovel, and you can watch a real worker bee show you how it's done. Heck, I'll even do it just for the medical coverage I no longer have.

As if civil servants aren't taxpayers. What happened to all those people who work in the private sector making 2-3x a civil servants salary. You lost your income so you now need someone else to blame. You didn't save in case something happens. As to the foreclosures---most of those people couldn't afford these homes in the first place, but yeah, blame the civil servant who always made less than the private industry. Maybe you should blame the banks for their greed, or better yet, your own selfishness and stupidity for not taking responsibility for your life.
