Ralph Suozzi has always been inept. This is more proof, however, put the blame on all the people who voted for him.

I have to agree with this one. I, for one, did NOT vote for Souzi. Enough with the Souzzi's in this City, they are dragging it down.

Yes, and he also gave a 10% raise to his deputy mayor who doesn't even live in the City. Moreover, the police chief is paid $165,000 per year and others are paid six figures for a job that an NYPD cop would do for $60,000 to $75,000. Mid level management in Long Island Corporations don't get that kind of money with the job security, pensions, etc. Public servants are becoming far better paid than the private sector in Nassau - it's ridiculous!!!

ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY. Better paid AND they keep all the bells and whistles benefit packages which were traditionally offered becuase they were being paid less than the private sector.

LOL. "it was a mistake that will not happen again".If the Mayor of Glen cove and the city comptroller do not know manadted NYS law then they should not be in their positions. This is the tip of the iceburg with funny money in Glen Cove, all fanageled to help Tom Suozzi.

Residents of nassau county need to be reminded that the Glen cove sewer treatment plant was built with public funds, state and federal, and it is not any Suozzi's position to trade without a public referendum on the transfer.

The cities financial problems were not from Tom Suozzi's tenur, another laughable line from Suozziville.If NIFA was not running Nassau County the "bond ratings' would be in the tank just like Glen Cove's

If Nassau had a real DA and not a Suozzi puppet, this would be Grand Jury fodder....

Since no one seems to be able to straighten it out, maybe the City of Glen Cove should disolve and become part of the Town of Oyster Bay.

How's that for consolidation Tommy?

In this article, Ralph is quoted saying he thinks $1.6 million is insignificant. If you do the math at Ralph's rate of pay, it would take him 16 years to earn that much money. Much more if you use his net pay instead of gross! And very much more if you include the interest!(aka Debt Service) Of course he can say it is insignificant, he's not the one paying it. WE ARE.
"But Ralph Suozzi said the borrowing was "so small, it's almost insignificant.""
Definitely: the Police should go to the County, and they City should dissolve.
We can save $100,000 plus plus plus if we do not have a City Council any more, and we can save lots of Money with NO More Mayor nor Deputy Mayor.
After all, if the County is running the Sewer, why do we need a Director of Public Works for over $100K?
BUT maybe the Town of Oyster Bay won't take it!

A vote for HILLARY CLINTON is a vote for Tom. If you are OUTRAGED by what you see here, go to the polls on February 5, and vote for someone else.

It will send a message.

I agree with "Angelo's" posting about the deputy mayor. Big raise and doesn't live here. But the GCPD Chief is paid appropriately for his police station/precinct.
