Democrats Step Up to the Plate
Whether it was the baseball frenzy caused by the possibility of a Subway Series or just her usual manner of speech, Judy Jacobs frequently used the metaphor of "stepping up to the plate" in a Monday interview about the Nassau County budget. Ms. Jacobs, the Democratic Majority Leader of the Nassau County Legislature, said that the last few weeks have been "heartbreaking," as the county lost many of its longtime leaders to early retirement incentives. She mentioned specifically Parks Commissioner John B. Kiernan, Senior Citizen Affairs Commissioner Rena Iacono and Consumer Affairs Commissioner James Picken. "It's a brain drain," she said. Ms. Jacobs and her staff have been working day and night to complete the majority budget which was officially presented to NIFA (Nassau Interim Financial Authority) Thursday, Oct 19.
