18. It was for years, and is where Al D'Amato came from...
Al was the bag man for the Margiotta Republican machine, but many years ago (how many I would have to look up) the Machine was tossed and Democrats took over.

It all had something to do with the county almost going bankrupt on top of a few select indictments.

Anyway, the Democrats put the county back on sound finances, and are still running it, but everything comes to an end eventually. Last I heard the Democrats are running scared-- Nassau doesn't actually like Democrats, just needed tham to fix things for a while.

Oh, and they keep putting Peter King back in the House every two years.
