Late last night, Suffolk County Legislator Jon Cooper, who is a facebook friend of LI Politics.com, added this remark to a post regarding New York State’s Equal Marriage Law.
“I spoke earlier today with my State Senator, Carl Marcellino. He’s no profile in courage, that’s for sure. I warned Carl that I’ll run against him in 2012 if he votes against the marriage equality bill and the measure fails. This guy is the poster child for cowardice…shame on him!”
Jon Cooper has represented the 18th Legislative District in Suffolk County for the last 12 years. He cannot seek re-election based on term-limits.
