Former Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi will consult Cablevision's Local Media Group, the group's president Tad Smith has announced.

Smith emphasized in a memo to employees that Suozzi's role will not involve lobbying, but mostly focus on the company's "MSG Varsity" initiative. The memo praises Suozzi's "considerable skills in understanding the needs of communities we serve."

This is the first public announcement of Democrat Suozzi's professional  plans since Republican Ed Mangano unseated him in the November election.
