Suozzi's Plan

I've long been a fan of Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi. He bucked the Nassau Democratic machine to get the nomination, and ousted the incredibly corrupt Republican machine from the total power it had been enjoying for years.

Now, though, I don't know what to think. He's running a quixotic race against Eliot Spitzer for NY Governor, and his platform seems to be delay or cancel the aid promised by CFE in order to fund property tax cuts for suburban homeowners.

As a suburban homeowner, I say bravo. But 1.1 million NYC schoolchildren need that money more than I do. I doubt Mr. Suozzi will get my vote in this primary.
