Nassau County sues to stop NIFA takover
GalleriesNassau County Executive Edward Mangano
Nassau County filed a lawsuit late Monday to block a state oversight board from taking control of the county's spending.
After the suit was filed in the county clerk's office, Deputy County Executive Patrick Foye resigned in protest. Foye said it was "irresponsible and wrong" to sue the state and "smear duly appointed members of a state board created to help elected county officials fix Nassau."
