Nassau County executive Ed Mangano's statement to the media after referendum defeat.
“The people of Nassau County have spoken and I can take joy in knowing that we celebrated democracy today. Over the course of the past several weeks, we all learned a lot about our County and what is needed to improve our local economy. I can tell you this, tonight is not the end of our journey, but merely the beginning. In the coming weeks I will explore a path for new opportunities and growth in Nassau County.”
