WOODBURY - A new poll shows that most Long Islanders don't have much faith in the honesty and integrity of elected officials.
The latest News 12/Hofstra poll asked respondents for their views on alleged local government corruption. Nearly 54 percent said they believe it's a serious problem. About 35 percent said it's a minor problem, while about 5 percent said it's not a problem at all on Long Island. Another 7 percent were undecided.
It comes after several high-profile arrests, including that of state Sen. Dean Skelos and his son, who are facing federal corruption charges.
