Geraldine Hart, Suffolk's top cop, to be Rep. Lee Zeldin's guest at State of the Union 

Suffolk Police Commissioner Geraldine Hart will be GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin’s guest at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address tomorrow night.

Jason Elan, spokesman for Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, said Zeldin’s office called the county executive, who gave the green light for Hart’s attendance, deeming it nonpolitical.

Zeldin in a Friday statement said Hart has “more than earned her corruption-busting, crime-stopping reputation,” and said he has worked with her, “to combat the heroin and opioid abuse epidemic and gang violence on Long Island.”

Hart said she is attending to represent her officers, “who are on the front lines keeping our communities safe.”
