InfoThomas Suozzi is the county executive of Nassau County, New York. He was first elected in 2001, the first Democratic county executive since Eugene Nickerson left office in 1971. On November 8, 2005, he won re-election as the Nassau County Executive. He followed Republican Thomas Gulotta. Suozzi previously served as Mayor of Glen Cove, New York. He became County Executive at a time when the county was near bankruptcy, being elected by a margin of 2 to 1 in in a County with more registered Republicans than any county in New York State.

He was born and raised in Glen Cove, New York, graduated from Boston College and Fordham University. Suozzi is married to his wife Helene and has three children.

Suozzi has been a controversial and maverick figure, he has platformed for a "Fix Albany" campaign, blaming many of Nassau County's problems on the notoriously dysfunctional state legislature (which meets in Albany, New York). His criticisms included both Republicans and Democrats in the state legislature, even advocating for the defeat of incumbent legislators, Democrats included. Many feel this caused him to be left out of the New York State Delegation at the 2004 Democratic National Convention which nominated Senator John Kerry for President, although the Democratic speaker of the New York State Assembly has denied that was the reason.

A moderate Catholic Democrat, in 2005, he advocated curtailing abortions by speaking out in favor of alternate options for pregnant women considering abortion, including adoption and homes for single mothers. Many liberals accused Suozzi of paying lip service to the conservative and moderate pro-life voters in an attempt to neutralize any major Republican opposition.

Suozzi was reelected as county executive, defeating his Republican rival Greg Peterson 59%-38% on November 8, 2005. He has been rumored to be interested in running for Governor of New York in 2006.
