Islip: Greene back in a town job
Former Islip Town Board member Pamela Greene has returned to the town's payroll.
She began work Tuesday as an assistant town attorney making $50,000 a year, less than half what she was making when she left a county government job in 2012. A town spokesman said that Greene will handle law enforcement issues like town code, building and parking violations. She fills a vacant position that has been empty since her predecessor, who was making $56,500 a year, left in November.
Greene spent 19 years as an Islip Town board member, ran a close but losing three way race for town supervisor and was former County Executive Steve Levy’s $115,000 a year director of real estate for nearly four years.
The town job comes after Greene last spring considered a political comeback by running for county legislature and accepted a town GOP decision to pick Anthony Musumeci as their candidate. He lost in November.
