Both of these women have yet to be paid and have yet to have their cases presented to and voted on by the Legislature of Nassau County. The Legislature and the County of Nassau have decided to play politics with these women, their settlements and their lives.

These games are being played to gain political advantage, in total disregard for the long term impact of their actions on Ms. Pellegrini, Ms. Frierson and the people of the County of Nassau. These women will come before the Press and community to let the political parties know that they will not stand by and be used as pawns in their political schemes.They will hold a joint press conference tomorrow Wednesday, May 29, 2013--10:00 a.m. at The Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington (556 Peninsula Blvd., Hempstead, NY 11550) to address these actions by the County and the County Legislature. Detailed copies of the facts alleged in their respective cases will be released to the Press.
