Levy boots remaining members of the Hispanic Advisory Board

Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy has decided to reorganize the Hispanic Advisory Board by telling all current board members to re-apply for their jobs.

Members of the board received a letter from Executive Levy telling them to send their resumes in by August 29. Levy says the head of the board asked him to reorganize because a lot of members have currently left. According to Levy, the situation is not considered a firing but more of a ?new reconstitutioning of the board.?

A Hispanic advocacy group is urging people not to apply for a job on the new board because they believe the new members will be used by the county executive.
