Suozzi Primary Victory-He Said He Could Do It and He Did
To the campaign theme of, "I can do it because I've done it," Glen Cove Mayor Thomas Suozzi proved himself right with a surprise victory in the Democratic Primary for County Executive over his opponent, entrenched Democratic Party politician Assemblyman Thomas DiNapoli. On Sept. 25, Suozzi defeated DiNapoli by more than 5,000 votes. With all 1,072 Nassau County Election Districts reporting in to the County Board of Elections at 11 a.m. on Sept. 26, the final tally in the primary is: 36,796 votes for Suozzi; 31,719 votes for DiNapoli. The turnout is a record and larger than the turnout in the last Presidential Primary between Al Gore and Bill Bradley.
Ferry Commuters Left Stranded by Fox Navigation
As commuters traveling to downtown Manhattan from Glen Cove boarded the 6:30 a.m. Fox Navigation high-speed ferry on Sept. 25, a note they were given announcing the end of several daily runs to Manhattan surprised them. The letter blamed operating costs and environmental considerations for the curtailment of ferry services. Equally astounded were City of Glen Cove officials who were not informed of the ferry operator's decision. The new ferry service will now be one trip to South Ferry at 6:30 a.m. and one trip back to Glen Cove at 5:00 p.m., leaving the majority of ferry commuters who prefer traveling at 7:50 a.m. with little choice.
