Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy may have been spurned by his neighbor Edward Mangano today, but Levy picked up the backing of another county executive, Chemung County Executive Thomas Santulli, who is president of the state Association of Counties.
Levy also secured the endorsement of Chemung County GOP chairman Michael Krusen.
“As a fellow county executive, Steve has a firsthand experience with the challenges local governments all over the state are facing,” Santulli said in a statement.
“Steve has successfully led one of the largest counties in the nation through difficult financial times, holding the line on taxes and spending without reducing vital services. He is the kind of executive New York needs for its next governor.”
