Cross-endorsed County Court candidate Tim Mazzei may have resigned early as a Brookhaven Town board member, but the Republican started the next day as a part-time assistant town attorney.
Town Attorney Annette Eaderesto said Mazzei will help with the newly established housing court -- in which the district court sets aside one day a week to deal with town code enforcement and quality of life issues.
She said that Mazzei can work up to a maximum of 17.5 hours a week and will make $71.42 an hour or as much as $1,249 weekly. He will also continue to receive town health insurance.
If he works the maximum hours each week to year’s end, he will make about $22,500. The rate of pay is more than Mazzei made as a $67,986-a-year town board member. With both major and minor party backing Mazzei is virtually assured election as judge which will pay $174,000 a year.
