The Ever-Vague Peter Schmitt

In a Newsday article about Nassau County Comptroller Howard Weitzman's call for an additional $30million cut from the County budget, Souzzi is on board with that plan to save Nassau County finances "If the economy stays like it is now, maybe the county won't be in trouble, but I'm not willing to take that chance because it could get worse"
Legisaltor Dave Mejias takes the bold step of putting his cards on the table "There has to be more cuts, and everything is on the table, youth board programs to parks. And I'm not for raising property taxes above the 3.9 percent already called for."
Minority Leader Peter Schmitt?
Well, he takes the easy way "I would look for ways to work with the county executive to eliminate his onerous tax increase."
Could be a little more specific, Peter?
You are the Minority Leader who wants to be the Presiding Officer. Surely you can offer up an idea or at least draw a line in the sand. Can't you?
