Turley Redmond & Rosasco Partner Endorsed by Newsday for Suffolk County LegislatureMonday, October 29, 2007
Turley Redmond & Rosasco founding partner William "Bill" Turley was endorsed today by Newsday as Smithtown’s next representative in the Suffolk County Legislature. Bill, who has been practicing workers’ compensation and disability claim law on Long Island for over 20 years, impressed the Newsday staff with his innovative ideas on clean energy and immigration.
- 13TH DISTRICT
North Smithtown, part of Huntington
Republican Lynn Nowick, 60, of St. James, is running for a fourth term. Her assiduous constituent services assure her popularity. But she has few constructive new ideas, especially regarding the 800-pound gorilla in her district: the fate of the former Kings Park Psychiatric Center.
On this vexing issue, her Democratic opponent, William Turley, 49, of Fort Salonga, agrees that the legislature has little influence beyond rhetorical support of a better proposal for the complex’s use. But Turley, an attorney specializing in workers’ compensation, brings a refreshing and progressive perspective that differs sharply with Nowick’s in every other respect. He favors hiring halls for migrant workers, wants stricter penalties for sex offenders but is concerned about the constitutionality of residential restrictions, and would push for alternative energy policies in the county to offset dependence on foreign oil. We endorse Turley.
For many disabled clients on Long Island and New York City, Bill has been a steady hand guiding them through the disability claim maze. Good luck Bill on November 6th!
