Something is fishy when NIFA is only enforcing a pay freeze and hiring freeze on Nassau County workers. You know the one who do the real work getting their hands dirty everyday and putting their lives on the line.

If Mangano refuses to raise taxes but is allowed to hire political friends to $100,000 a year jobs while UNION workers and being fired and frozen their is corruption going on.

Either have NIFA enforce and all around freeze or open up a federal investigation into corruption by NIFA and the Nassau GOP.

Spelling errors:

Should read:

If Mangano refuses to raise taxes but is allowed to hire political friends to $100,000 a year jobs while UNION workers ARE (emphasized) being fired and frozen, THERE (emphasized) is corruption going on.
