Since it wasn’t surprising I was at the Nassau County Legislative Building for much of the day – from before noon until after 5 PM yesterday – I should have brought more food than a small coconut bar, especially since the meals others brought in were off-limits for my gluten-free diet.

The Nassau County Legislature voted to Close 4 of 8 Police Precincts, many hours into their Monday, March 5, 2012 meeting, which was so well attended by residents and Press that it was often Standing Room Only.
