County's Political Merry-Go-Round Continues to Spin
Nassau Republican legislators have appealed last week's Supreme Court decision in which Judge Joseph P. Spinola nullified a vote making Republican Peter Schmitt presiding officer of the Nassau County Legislature. The judge also ordered that the Nassau County Legislature reconvene, with all 19 legislators present, and remain in session until a presiding officer is elected with a minimum 10-vote majority. In his decision, Spinola stated that "it is undisputed that every presiding officer of the Nassau County Legislature since its inception in 1995 has been elected with 10 or more votes."
