(Below is a copy of a letter emailed to Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano re: Senior citizen partial tax abatement)
Dear County Executive Mangano:
I cannot comprehend how your administration permitted state legislation that was vital to senior citizens with moderate income to sunset at the end of 2016.
Moreover, your administration failed to inform our senior citizens that they should expect a drastic increase in their property tax bill. As you know, many seniors live on fixed incomes and this increase will be devastating.
The Deputy Speaker Earlene Hooper and I have discussed this matter at great length. The Deputy Speaker will introduce curative proposed legislation and I will be a co-sponsor.
