TOBAY Town Clerk - Busy, Busy, Busy

In the Massapequan Observer it says that republican Town Clerk Steve "When will Venditto leave so I can be Supervisor?" Labriola "...expanded office hours and improved systems and procedures resulting in increased operating efficiency."
But Wait!
Former Town Clerk, the defeated Martha Offerman who is now a former Democrat and running for the Legisalture against supurb first-termer Diane Yaturo, also takes credit for expanding office hours; "Among the many innovations she [Offerman] brought to the town clerk’s office during her tenure was the establishment of evening hours, several nights a month, to make the many services offered by her office more accessible to the taxpayers and residents of Oyster Bay."
"opened the Office of the Clerk for evening hours until 7:30 p.m. every Tuesday. Whether you need a marriage license, birth certificate, senior beach pass, passport application, or a parking permit they may now be obtained at a time convenient for the public."

The current hours of operation according to the Town website
"Town Clerk's Offices' Late Hours 2005
The two Town Clerk's Offices, Town Hall East, 54 Audrey Avenue, Oyster Bay, New York 11771 and Town Hall South, 977 Hicksville Road, Massapequa, New York 11758, will be extending their hours until 7:30 p.m. on each of the following Tuesdays:"

So, in 2003 Offerman campaigned on having expanded hours on tuesday till 7:30pm. Now Labriola is campaigning on "expanded office hours" which is THE SAME as when Offerman was there. What did Labriola expand? Looks like NOTHING.
Labriola told a fib.
