Islip Supervisor Candidate Tom Licari on LIMA

September 19, 2015

"I applaud and welcome Steve Bellone's allocation of $1.5 million to improve and expand the Long Island MacArthur Airport infrastructure and services. Let us not forget one of the reasons for the deficits of the last few years at MacArthur is that the current commissioner achieved his post by way of political patronage from a Republican administration that promised a nationwide search for the best candidate. Under the last Democratic administration, the airport was run by Teresa Rizzuto, a professional airport manager. Any position of importance, such as commissioner, should be based on the best qualifications and not as a result of political payback."
- Tom Licari, Candidate for Islip Town Supervisor
