Suffolk County Legislators Are Asking "Where's Steve Levy?"

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - Has Steve Levy gone into hiding? Several days after the embattled Suffolk County Executive announced he would not seek re-election amid an ongoing campaign fundraising investigation, the question remains...where is Levy?

WCBS 880's Mike Xirinachs reports no one's saying publicly where the the county executive is, only that he's taking some needed time off.

A move that has legislator John Cooper question Levy's timing.

"This is not the time for us to have an absent county executive so my hope is after the next few days the county executive will come back, collect himself and get back to doing the peoples' business," said Cooper.

Cooper is not calling for Levy to resign amid all the controversy, but he's hopeful that if the controversy becomes too much of a distraction the county executive will, as Cooper told WCBS 880, do the right thing for the county.

"I remain concerned about how that's going to - long term - affect the ability of Steve Levy to lead," said Cooper.
