Living on Long Island is costly, and one of the biggest concerns of many residents is the school taxes in Nassau County.
With the election for Nassau County Executive now in full motion, both current county executive Edward Mangano and former executive Thomas Suozzi are now about to begin convincing voters that their plan will be best for the next few years.
Both politicians have blamed each other for the growth in school tax rates, and for the hike in property taxes.
According to a report in Newsday, Nassau school tax rates increased this year by an average of 6.8 percent, far more than what most local homeowners probably expected.
While the election will not take place until November, it is clear that there will be many different issues to debate among the two men. Will Mangano come out on top, like he did when he defeated Suozzi in 2009? Will Suozzi stage the political comeback of the year?
We shall have to wait and see, though it will certainly be an election to remember.
