Spin Cycle

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

Seeking to capture what may be regarded as DA Kathleen Rice's turf, veteran Assemb. Richard Brodsky of Westchester -- a Democrat also vying to succeed Cuomo as attorney general -- rolled out endorsements Friday from Island colleagues Earlene Hooper (D-Hempstead), Marc Alessi (D-Shoreham), Steve Englebright (D-Setauket), Ginny Fields (D-Oakdale), Robert Sweeny (D-Lindenhurst) and Fred Thiele (I-Sag Harbor). They hailed Brodsky's work on mass transit, environment, authorities, LIPA, and property taxes. He's been active in pushing authorities reform for years in his legislative role.
