levy trying to bully everybody, he has no idea how to run a government, he should be impeached. he's going to try to force his budget down the throats of every taxpayer in the county without the legislature accounting for what he does. that's the purpose of the legislature. Levy wants to be governor, doesn't care about Suffolk. Levy will sacrifice the future of Suffolk for his own political gains now. He wants to be able to say he saved al this money now, then when he's gone, we'll all be paying for it.

Levy owns the ethics committee and is using them to overtake the Legislature. There are no checks and balances in Suffolk County Government! Who is protecting us against Levy and his political machinery?

It is seriously time for someone to start the process of impeachment. Levy is out of control.

Levy seems like he is afraid to have good public discourse and LET truth find it's own level on if the nursing home should be sold. We are paying for this facility in our taxes and evidently the bonds that will no longer be paid by Medicare when the facility is closed. So we inherit what is unpaid. The diminishment of all health resources tells me to LET THE SUFFOLK COUNTY VOTERS DECIDE THIS ONE. NOT LEVY.

Once again, we are faced with a shinning example of those who would attempt to change the facts, which clearly state that Steve Levy is correct. Mr. Lindsay is that last person who should be suggesting that some form of ethics are in question; I'm surprised he's even familiar with that word. When it comes to the issues that matter most to the people of Suffolk County, Bill Lindsay is nowhere to be found.

And for this so called "transparency issue that Ms. Felice has charged against Steve Levy who has run an open and honest government unlike his predecessor, is the last to be talking about transparency, Superman himself couldn’t see through all the backroom hidden agenda dealings that Ms. Felice has been involved in during her kabuki theatre style reign.

Ed Romaine is a sleeze and he well knew that he should not be voting on anything to do with the nursing home. As usual he is selectively stupid
