Suozzi Has Primary Cure for Medicaid
County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi has been outspoken in presenting what he sees as the future of Nassau County. "My plan consists of three major reforms," he said in his State of the County address. The first would be to further streamline the county, have open, honest government and upgraded county facilities. The second piece is a bold, far-reaching move: reform in Albany demanding State Legislators to stop driving ever-increasing costs, like Medicaid, down onto the local property taxpayer. The third would be a dramatic reform of the economic growth rules of the 1940s and 50s that no longer work in the suburbia of today.
