Spin Cycle

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

There will be an interesting mix of geography and politics and career trajectory Tuesday night.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy, hoping to be governor, will be in Nassau County to talk to anti-tax activists about “the fiscal crisis facing Albany and America, his philosophy on the role of government, and his reform agenda.”

Former Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi, who lost his bid for a third term, will be on Staten Island, to speak at a symposium at Wagner College on “What’s Wrong with Albany and How to Fix It.”

Who would have thought six months ago that Levy would be bringing his own GOP race for governor into neighboring Nassau?

And that Suozzi would be out of a political job and lecturing about his glory days when he was beating up the state’s political establishment and dreaming of the governor’s mansion himself?
