Suffolk Ballot Won’t Have Campaign Finance Measure

David M. Schwartz reports in Newsday  that Suffolk County voters will not be voting on whether to provide public financing for county legislative races and to increase legislators’ terms of office:

“Sponsor Rob Calarco (D-Patchogue) said he didn’t want a pending referendum to be seen as an attempt to influence the Village of Islandia’s decision on whether to allow a video slot machine casino at the site of the Islandia Marriott Long Island.” and


“the unanimous committee vote to table the bill means the full Legislature won’t vote on the item Tuesday, the deadline to put the referendum on the November ballot.”
