The race for Suffolk County executive is officially underway, but one politician is missing from the headlines: In March, current Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy bowed out of the race and returned $4 million in campaign funds after the county district attorney’s office raised questions about improper fundraising within his campaign.
You’d think it would be time to regroup, maybe think about a second career, but Levy’s still trying to push local legislation targeting Suffolk immigrants. At a June 7 meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature, the county executive intends to introduce two employment verification bills, both of which would encourage discrimination against immigrant workers.
The Suffolk County Legislature needs to send a strong message to Levy that his penchant for anti-immigrant policies and rhetoric won't be tolerated anymore, even from a lame duck.
Sign this petition and tell the legislature to vote down these two bills, and to instead investigate the extent of Levy's corrupt fundraising.
