News, views and commentary on Long Island, state and national politics.

Republican Nassau Executive Ed Mangano is due to attend Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's third State-of-the-State address today in Albany. A group of other Long Island luminaries has also checked in.

But Democratic Suffolk Executive Steve Bellone won't attend, and is sending Deputy Executive Jon Schneider for the event. Bellone is reportedly scheduled to hold a fundraiser tonight. Of course, anyone can watch on a live stream video these days .?.?.
