Nobody in Nassau Wants to ‘Get the Boot’

Written by Margaret Whitely: mwhitely@antonnews.com Friday, 30 March 2012 00:00

County to come down hard on scofflaws

The “boot” in question is not that nifty, expensive leather fashion item, but rather the immobilizing device that is placed on a car as a result of not paying traffic fines for parking or getting caught going through red lights. And, no doubt, it will cost more than that pricy footware you’ve been eyeing.

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced that the Nassau County Boot and Tow Program has begun, as of March 26. This program has been set up to help collect unpaid fines from scofflaws with parking or traffic violations.

Fifteenth term in office will be his last

U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-Queens/L.I.) will not seek re-election to the United States Congress next year. The announcement came late on Thursday, March 15, following the federal circuit court’s approval of Congressional district lines, a decision that Ackerman’s office called “extraordinarily favorable” to the congressman who is serving his fifteenth term in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Announcing his decision not to run for a sixteenth term of office, Ackerman added that, if he had chosen to run again, he would have run “with the primary-free backing of the Democratic Party virtually assured.”
