Nassau one of the first stops on Levy's path to Albany

A local anti-tax group — the Nassau County Civic Association — just took on added political significance.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy, expected to announce he is running for governor on Friday, is to speak to the group next Tuesday night at the Plainview-Bethpage Library.

The co-sponsors of the event, according to the meeting notice, are “two of the largest TEA party groups on Long Island, the Conservative Society for Action (CSA) and the Nassau County TEA Party Patriots.”

“Steve Levy will address the following topics: the fiscal crisis facing Albany and America, his philosophy on the role of government, and his reform agenda,” the notice said.

Even before word leaked on Levy’s run for governor, the group was advising its members that although the meeting was at 7 p.m.: “please arrive earlier as seating is limited.”
