Joseph Mondello gives Lou Savinetti new two-year term


Republican Nassau County legislators last week reappointed GOP Elections Commissioner Lou Savinetti to a new two-year term — nine months before his existing term expires on Dec. 31.

They acted on a Jan. 11 recommendation from Nassau Republican chairman Joseph Mondello. State law says Republican and Democratic elections commissioners must be nominated by their party chairmen.

Mondello’s recommendation basically ensured Savinetti three more years in the GOP elections commissioner post, which pays $180,314 this year.
