Former Nassau Co. Executive Tom Suozzi seeks return to office

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - Former Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi is running in the Democratic primary to get his old job back.

Suozzi was beaten in 2009 by Republican Edward Mangano after serving two terms as county executive.

He is being challenged in the Democratic primary by businessman and Roslyn School Board member Adam Haber.

Haber claims his business experience can help the financially strapped county. It's been under a control board since 1999.

The winner faces Mangano in November.

In Suffolk County, three-time incumbent District Attorney Thomas Spota faces a Republican primary challenge from attorney Raymond Perini.

Spota is also running as a Democrat.

He won a court fight this summer over term limits. A state court ruled the DA's office is not subject to a county term limits law.
