Nassau Dem offers more than promises

Nassau County Legis. David Denenberg wowed the audience Thursday at the 10th annual Earth Day celebration at the Charles A. Reinhard Early Childhood Center in Bellmore.

The Merrick Democrat said warm and fuzzy things about Earth Day, but the less-than-voting-age audience roared — actually they were more like a lot of loud yips — when he announced he had brought flavored ices for everyone.

He also asked the youngsters to propose two ideas that would benefit the environment countywide or in Bellmore. If he got good ideas, “I’ll be back with a pizza party.” More roars and yips.

Republican Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano, who brought a plaque, got a polite reception.
