Republican leaders of the Nassau County legislature called on County Executive Ed Mangano to resign.
Monday’s news conference came only a few hours after Mangano had given his State of the County address.
Mangano was indicted on federal bribery and corruption charges in October.
Presiding Officer Norma Gonsalves says it was a difficult decision to call for his resignation but Mangano has to do what is best for the county.
Mangano called the move by the Republican leaders “election season nonsense.”
