Westbury, NY,

Glen Cove Mayor Tom Suozzi defeated the Democratic party machine in prevailing over Assemb. Tom DiNapoli in yesterday’s Democratic primary.

Surrounded by his family, friends and supporters, Suozzi was both joyous in victory and somber as he recalled the tragic events at the WTC and his own personal loss. He praised the spirit of the American people and the greatness of America and promised to live up to the ideals "that make this country great."

Despite the predictions of some pollsters and pundits, Suozzi proved that it is people that elect candidates, not endorsements.

Suozzi praised DiNapoli as "A great Democrat and a great leader."

If elected, Suozzi promised to "Break the back of machine politics in Nassau County" and take on the patronage and waste that have made Nassau County one of the worst run counties in the nation.

Suozzi concluded his thank you’s of the evening by thanking the volunteer workers of his campaign. He told them, "I couldn’t have done this without you. Don’t ever let me forget who you are."
