Statement by Nassau County Executive Laura Curran Regarding
Conviction of Former County Executive Edward Mangano
Mineola, NY — Today is a sad reminder that for too long, Nassau County’s taxpayers paid a high price for a government that did not work for them. Our residents have footed the bill for a culture of corruption that has been allowed to permeate throughout our County government, enriching the few while betraying the many. Today I want our residents to know this: Nassau has turned the page.
I took office with a simple promise to restore trust and fiscal integrity in Nassau, and I’m proud that my Administration is delivering on that promise:
We are doing the right things for the right reasons because for far too long our leaders did the wrong things for their own reasons. My Administration is moving full-steam ahead on my anti-corruption agenda, which will entail additional reforms to bring more transparency and oversight into how we spend taxpayer money. There will be daunting challenges ahead, but we are well on our way to restoring integrity to Nassau County government.
