Thomas F. Liotti, criminal defense attorney, Westbury Village Justice and federal judge nominee, has written his fifth book entitled Judge Mojo: The True Story of One Attorney’s Fight Against Judicial Terrorism.
Mojo is a “non-fiction account” of a county court judge – “psychotic, armed and dangerous who stalked, threatened and harassed me and my family,” according to Liotti, of Westbury, whose firm is located in Garden City.
On June 30, Ken Jenks, a Westbury resident and veteran, was awarded a citation recognizing service to his country from Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano at the Westbury-Carle Place Chamber of Commerce’s Officers Installation Dinner.

“Judge McAndrews is a highly respected member of the legal community,” said Judge Anthony Marano. “He is a person of unquestionable integrity and brings a wealth of knowledge regarding all areas of the law. His extensive experience in criminal prosecution, law enforcement, and criminal defense litigation affords him the unique opportunity to serve the residents of Nassau County.”
According to Nassau County Police, on June 16 at approximately 1:30 a.m. near Nassau University Medical Center’s west entrance, Kim Wolfe, a Nassau Corrections officer from North Babylon, shot Stacie Williams, a 45-year-old Hempstead resident working the night shift in the maternity ward.

On June 3, a little over two hours yielded a significant amount of progress at the Westbury Board of Trustees meeting.
The first order of business was the approval of a special use permit for the new Dunkin’ Donuts store located at 467C Old Country Road in Westbury. The permit will allow extended hours of operation for the business (open 24 hours a day) as long as the following conditions are met: delivery trucks are only allowed from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., garbage trucks must only operate between the same hours but never on weekends, regular inspection of the parking lot to ensure cleanliness, an annual renewal application for the special use permit and a posted sign stating patrons must be considerate of noise after 10 p.m. The Dunkin’ Donuts agreed to the terms in order to comply with the town’s wishes of decreasing residential traffic and not posing a negative impact on the adjacent residents of Rockaway Avenue.
Eleven-year-old Michael Taylor, a student at Bowling Green Middle School, is on the fast-track to success as he prepares to fly to Los Angeles on June 25 for a national academic competition.

On Friday, May 28, the Village of Westbury Building Department, accompanied by the Nassau County Police Department, executed a search warrant with respect to alleged multiple code violations in a central Westbury area home.
The home had been the target of previous village enforcement action. One man believed to be the owner of the property, according to police, was the subject of an open arrest warrant associated with past village housing violations; he was arrested and issued an appearance ticket.
On June 2, the Carle Place School Board announced that Superintendent W. Michael Mahoney will retire on Sept. 20, and Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Personnel David J. Flatley, of Levittown, will be the next superintendent of schools.
On May 25, a declaration was made by members of the Westbury Board of Education to remove trustees Dr. Pless Dickerson, Floyd Ewing and Larry “Chip” Zaino, Sr. The three trustees were sent letters the following morning informing them that their seats were considered “vacated” on the grounds that they missed too many meetings.
According to School Law, a book published by the New York State School Boards and Bar associations, a vacancy can be declared if “the record clearly shows that a board member has failed to attend three successive meetings and has no sufficient excuse for the absences.”
Westbury Village is asking the Nassau County Association for the Help of Retarded Citizens (AHRC) to look elsewhere when it comes to operating another community residence for children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities.
Earlier this year, AHRC, a non-profit organization, entered into a contract to purchase a home on Rugby Road for the intention of operating a community residence. While sympathetic to the needs of the AHRC client population, as well as the services the agency provides, Westbury officials believe the village has “done its share to be welcoming and accommodating to persons with these and similar needs…” when compared to some neighboring communities.
