Spin Cycle

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

 

The Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick in the City of New York hosts its big dinner at the Sheraton New York on Wednesday, with Archbishop Timothy Dolan due to speak. Sitting prominently should be three Long Islanders with names that -- as one crafty old pro put it -- “might suggest a background where Gaelic is not the first language”: State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano and Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy.

But they’ll be at a table, we are told, with those of a more conspicuous Emerald Isle lineage, including Association for a Better Long Island’s Desmond Ryan and Nassau's Patrick Foye, nowadays a Mangano deputy.
