Nassau County Executive Edward Managano has projected that he will get  $315 in savings over the next four years from union concessions  — a plan that has some fiscal analysts scratching their heads and wondering how he will do it.
 

Maybe he’s hoping to talk give-backs while on the links.

An invitation to  Mangano’s first golf outing as county executive shows that five county union presidents are members of his fund-raising committee: Mike Adams of the Sheriff Officers Association; James Carver of Police Benevolent Association; Jerry Laricchiutta of the Civil Service Employees Association,  Gary Learned of the Superior Officers Association and Tom Willdigg of the Detectives Association.


The event starts at 6:30 a.m. at the Bethpage State Park Red, Blue and Yellow courses on June 28th, with a 1 p.m. reception at Carlyle on the Green.
