Sheriff's Union Disagrees With Undersheriff Appointment
The Sheriff Officers Association (ShOA) of Nassau County, the union that represents more than 1,000 correction officers at the East Meadow-based Nassau County Correctional Facility (NCCF), is speaking out against Sheriff Edward Reilly's recent appointment of Michael J. Sposato as undersheriff. While ShOA reps argue that Sposato is not qualified for the position, Nassau Local 830 of the Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA), the union representing some 10,000 civilian employees - including more than 100 at the jail, fully supports the appointment.
