Nassau isn't a joke, but having resided in the village of Hempstead for most of my life (and having family that still do) I must say that it's going in the wrong direction again. Nonsense at Village Hall, meter maids run rampant, gang-related problems, more prostitutes on the streets...ugh.

Mayor Wayne Hall and Village Attorney Debra Urbano-DiSalvo confirmed that Michael Abrahams was fired but declined to discuss the reasons for his ouster.

Mayor Hall should be fired. The Administrator of the Village of Hempstead was pay with tax money and it's a Public Position, Mayor Hall should speak up fast.

well with all those silly little villages out there it's always going to be something fishy in those village halls. They probably have about 100 mayors in nassau county alone for god sake.

This is better than a soap opera. Maybe there's an opportunity to get this on cable TV, proceeds to rduce the VOH tax bite. Maybe even on Larry Kung - after all this is more splicy than Paris Hiltern.

This manages to reach the paper with references to an affidavit from some woman who had sex with Abrahams in his car. However, the mayor and his newest incompetent attorney decline to discuss the reasons for Abrahams' ouster.

Abrahams is only a reflection of the people who hired him--the ever lying idtiot Hall. I guess Abrahams has outlive dhis usefulness as he helped Hall win his mayorality. Hall pays him with a job and when he learns that Abrahams wants to be mayor, himself, he gets fired in public disgrace.

Abrahams, reportedly, like all of Hall's people, entered Village Hall with a axe and a knife with the intent to humilaite and destroy the incumbent employees at Hall's behest. Although this situation wreaks of setup, Abrahams should remember; how one meets something,is how he is going to leave it.

If Ms. Hill isn't even opening up mail from the duly elected Mayor of the village she resides in, Hempstead is in bad shape. This makes her look petty & vindictive. It also makes Hempstead Village look bad. She was elected to serve all Hempstead residents and her Assembly district, no matter what ethnic background they happen to be. She better think her actions over. If the "caribbean" (that takes in people of African, Indian & Spanish descent) people of Hempstead decide they don't like her anymore, she could be unemployed! Hempstead Village needs all the help it can get. To give her assistance to a Republican when she's a Democrat, and the Mayor is a Democrat, is childish behavior. No one elected that Abrams guy to anything. He was given that job by the prior Republican administration. Abrams should be thankful that Mayor Hall didn't fire him when he took office! Ms. Hill has a history of going to other Trustees like Perry Pettus, instead of the Mayor. This has got to stop. This petty feud is giving Hempstead another black eye that it doesn't need. If she doesn't stop trying to save face & end this bickering, I for one, will remember this the next time she wants my vote! I'll remind my family, friends & neighbors of it too!

This also is a byproduct of Jay Jacobs not endorsing Hall for Mayor when he first ran. That act was a slap in the face to every Democrat in the village. Jacobs and the Democratic party hierarchy, take votes for granted by people of African descent. It's about time we make the Democrats come courting us, as they do other groups. They, like the Republican machine, have no concern for our concerns. We should all write & e-mail Jacobs and tell him since he didn't want to get involved in the village's future, stay out of our future! Don't hand pick who you want to do your bidding within village borders. We residents who can think and who are intelligent, just may surprise you!.

Hall did not know that Michael lived in Freeport. Everyone else in the Village knew it. By the way Earlene lives in NYC not in her district, selective coverage by Newsday again.

I believe that this article is an outright ploy of defamation of character. If Michael Abrahams was not fired for the information included in the sworn affidavit, then that information should not be included. The information about the affidavit seems as if the party involved is upset about something. If they did have consensual sex and they are both adults, then that is between the both of them. What would that have to do with his position as an adminstrator? Seems like the female involved needs to grow up and be a woman. Who really kisses and tells in 2007??????

No surprise there. What you say is true, not just with the security dept; our tax dollars hard work. They have way too much time on their hands....It is a boring party.....those that are not in extra marital affairs sit around reading magazines and doing cross word puzzles to pass the day in some, not all, high ranking offices at Town Hall. Their defense is that there isn't enough work and their parents paid their dues. The Town feels they are entitled to run their Town of Hempstead as they see fit over the Public's objections. The wheels of justice move slowly or have grinded to a halt. Beyond local elections nothing can be done and the democrats, probably no better, have decided it better to coexist than fight the GOP at Town Hall.

Shonique, I agree. This is the Hall administration at its best. They not only want to get people out of the way--they try to destroy them. The problem become this--when one digs graves for other people, the one diging may fall in it himself. Hall's intent was to remove Abrahams and ruin him so he would not have to deal with him running against him for mayor. Just wait--the truth will come out.

To the above poster--Abrahams was not employed when Hall became mayor. He was hired because he helped Hall win his seat--everyone knows that. Further, Abrahams was not a Republican when Hall hired him. Abrahams is toxic and Hall knew it. Frankly, both deserved each other.
