Previous hires include former Democratic aides Fran Evans and Gerry Twombly and Joanne Maglione, who was a deputy county attorney for Suozzi.

Mirza, who ran twice for the county legislature, now actively supports Adam Haber against Suozzi for the Democratic nomination for county executive, saying he wants a change in party leadership. Christopoulos was unavailable.-- Celeste Hadrick
