Judge Rules in Favor of Jacobs' Unaffiliated Party Status
A state supreme court judge ruled late Jan. 19 in favor of Nassau County Presiding Officer Judy Jacob's (16th L.D.) 11th hour political maneuver to change her party registration from Democrat to unaffiliated (a.k.a. "blank") in an effort to prevent a bipartisan-formed coalition from unseating her. In his decision, Acting Supreme Court Judge Antonio J. Brandveen endorsed the Nassau County Democratic Committee's motion disenrolling Jacobs from the party. But contention among the legislature is far from resolved and when the vote deciding who will be presiding officer will take place is still unknown. As a result, Jacobs remains in the top seat as a "hold over."
