These mostly blue collar workers are upset that Levy is making no attempts to fix the budget except off the backs off county employees. Either through lag payroll, concessions, salary freeze or reduction, stripping of benefits, and layoffs, there's no other cuts anywhere else.

County employees didn't cause this mess, and they don't mind helping out, but they shouldn't soley be the ones paying to fix it.
Unbelievable

Why do people like you think "these people" think they are exempt from layoffs. Why do people like you think "these people" want to raise your taxes. "These people" are Suffolk County residents too. People like you need to be more informed before casting stones.

STEVE LEVY sent out ILLEGAL lay-off notices. He had to pass it through the LEGISLATURE first. The PROBLEM is that the LEGISLATURES have FAMILY that work for the COUNTY. So, some LEGISLATURES wanted to recuse themselves from the LAY-OFF decision. So, LEVY took the LEGISLATURES family members off the LAY-OFF LIST. "THESE PEOPLE" as you call them do not think they are immune to lay-offs. "THESE PEOPLE" are trying to stop LEVY from conducting ILLEGAL practices; something which HALPIN did years ago, and was sued for. DON'T PEOPLE LIKE YOU READ THE PAPER! DON'T PEOPLE LIKE YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON UNDER YOUR OWN NOSE, IN YOUR OWN COUNTY!!

Honestly, "PEOPLE LIKE YOU" are
FREAKING UNBELIEVABLE!
