Nassau CE Edward Mangano will deliver his first State of the County speech Monday night in an unusual setting: a research facility/incubator in Bethpage.

Sorry for the trick question on a Monday morning.

The fiscal situation was so glum in March of 2009 that Suozzi did not give a State of the County speech, the only year he did not during his eight years in office.


Instead, he met the County Charter requirement to report on the State of the County annually by sending a glum, three-page letter to the legislature on June 30th, and made it public a few days later when Newsday asked about it.
