Update: Labriola To Step Down

Town of Oyster Bay clerk to join Nassau County Comptroller's Office.

Oyster Bay Town Clerk Steve Labriola is resigning his post to join the Nassau County Comptroller's Office, officials said.

Labriola is expected to step down some time this week and is set to become the chief deputy to Nassau Comptroller George Maragos, according to a Jostyn Hernandez, a spokesman for the comptroller's office. 

He will serve as chief of staff for Maragos and is set to start the job on Friday. He takes over for Frank Moroney who is the new Head Counsel for the Nassau County Legislature.

"Steven Labriola brings extraordinary administrative, governmental and financial qualifications to the Office of the Nassau County Comptroller which will be instrumental in helping to further streamline government, cut costs and eliminate wasteful spending,”  Maragos said in a statement.

Labriola was elected town clerk in 2003 and is in his fifth term. Prior to that, the Republican served as a member of the State Assembly from 1997 through 2003.

He has also served as director of operations for the town and has been active in several civic organizations, including the Order of Sons of Italy in America, Knights of Columbus and the Knights of Pythias. 

As town clerk he modernized a number of the clerk's operations, including initiating credit card payments for certain fees while overseeing offices in Oyster Bay and Massapequa.

I have to agree with John about the county debt....having to layoff after buying big parks one in Massapequa "dog park" which will just be another drug park . Forces retirements and layoffs . I'm sure that wasn't all on him in fact maybe that's why he's getting out buy STABLE IS AN ODD CHOICE OF WORDS

Mr. Wasley you are right.Taxes from people that are. Employed is what drives an economy. Free market jobs. Not municipal workers who don't produce and just get PAID from taxpayers. Plus there are less people working and paying taxes than there are people benefiting from the Tax Base.

Something Steve did for my wife and I was in 2004, he married us in a wonderful ceremony at the gezabo in the Town Square on a beautiful October day. Yeah, it was his job, but he made it so much more special and we never forgot that he was just as happy officiating our marriage as we were being married. hanks again Steve. Charlie and Diana Bradley
