What is Cathleen Rice doing about the huge gang problem in Nassau County? DWI's are easy. People are getting shot and killed every week. "She wants to be a Senator?"

Her incompetence will be welcomed in that corrupt body, as for her being the chief law enforcement person in Nassau, she's just another shyster in over her head

Agreed a big waste of our tax dollars goes into more unnecessary things, and the press portray Nassau to be one of the safest places what a load of crap
