WOODBURY - Nassau County's financial watchdog says some employees should lose their raises.

The chairman of the Nassau Interim Finance Board has asked County Executive Ed Mangano to take back wage increases for appointed non-union workers in the county.

Mangano gave $800,000 in raises in the past year, despite a three-year wage freeze.

Some workers received a pay hike of $25,000 to $35,000.

Mangano has been defending the raises, but says he will sit down with NIFA Chairman Jon Kaiman for a discussion later this week.

A spokesperson for Mangano says they've made across the board cuts and that the raises are related to “promotions and responsibility adjustments that have resulted in net savings for the county.”
