Letters: Why isn't Mangano's name on cameras?

Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano urged legislative leaders

Traveling around Nassau County, I see County Executive Edward Mangano's name on many posters and signs ["Cameras caught politics' ugly side," Editorial, Dec. 17].

Yet, the speed camera signs near schools and the red-light camera poles have no evidence of Mr. Mangano's contribution to the safety those devices afford. This appears to be an oversight that needs to be rectified.

Oh, good. Now we are going to let the people who are speeding and breaking the law make the decisions to run the county governments, both Nassau and Suffolk.

At least these cameras may have slowed people down a little. Plus, this was a good revenue source for the county without raising taxes.
