Suffolk County, NY - August 27, 2013 - William Lindsay, Presiding Officer of the Suffolk County, has appointed Legislature Al Krupski to the Operating Budget Working Group. Over the next few months, the bi-partisan group of legislators, along with their independent Budget Review Office, will review County Executive Steve Bellone’s proposed 2014 budget and will craft a response. 
 
According to PO Lindsay, “I am pleased to appoint Legislator Al Krupski to the Operating Budget Working group, in his first few months he has proven himself a valuable asset, with years of government experience, and a common sense approach he brings a fresh perspective to issues facing county government, he is an excellent addition to the group.”
 
Suffolk County is facing unprecedented financial challenges which include lower revenues coupled with increasing cost of operations,” said Legislator Krupski “but I am encouraged the Working Group has started early on the organizational process so when the County Executive’s is released, the Group can jump right in to work.”
