WOODBURY - Nassau County executive candidate Tom Suozzi spoke to News 12 Long Island this morning ahead of his first public press event of his new campaign.

The former Nassau County executive wants to run against Ed Mangano for his old seat back. Suozzi lost to Mangano in 2009 by just 390 votes.

"Nassau County has really gotten worse and worse over the past three years, and there's no vision for the future — all this massive borrowing, these phony budgets, I just got fed up with it," Suozzi says.

But Mangano says voters can see a clear difference between his record and Suozzi's, which included raising taxes.

Before Suozzi can take on Mangano to get his old job back, he could face a fierce primary against fellow Democrats. North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jon Kaiman and businessman Adam Haber are also vying for the seat.
