Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano celebrated the inauguration for his second term Thursday at Bethpage High School, his alma matter.

Various speakers included Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Rep. Peter King, as well as Senators Charles Schumer, Alfonse M. D'Amato and Dean Skelos.

"Ed Mangano has had four years of moments," Cuomo said. "In those four years, he has demonstrated a leadership capacity that is extraordinary."

Christopher Macchio serenaded the audience with performances of "Nessun Dorma" and "You Raise Me Up." The oath of office was performed by the Honorable Thomas Feinman, after which Mangano offered his gratitude to the residents of Nassau County.

"Now is the time for me to thank Nassau County," Mangano said. "Thank you for allowing me to serve as county executive for a second term. The support is overwhelming and very heart-warming."

When, why and how?

Taxes go up because the school districts tell the assessor's office how much they need to operate. Folks they are both government entities. I am curious why do we as hardworking taxpayers have to pay someone's medical and subsidize someone retirement? How does this better educate the children? These people make enough money and should be able to pay for there own medical and fund there own retirements. C'mon enough is enough.
