Has anyone ever wondered why Nassau County Legislators have never received a pay increase? There was one legislator that had always stood in the way. He balked his own party twice. He was punished for this but Dave Mejias believed that it wasn’t right to increase his own salary when so many families in Nassau County were suffering. That was then. Now we have a county legislator who, after being on the job for only a few days, blindly supported the party bosses and voted for pay increases. We assume that he knows the dire state of our economy, yet Joe Belesi’s first act in office was to line the pockets of his fellow Republicans. Have buyer’s remorse? You bet. Joe Belesi is going to end up costing us.
