There is a rumored possibility that Congressman James R.
Grover Jr. will receive an appointment for a judgeship. If this
happens Gilbert Hanse, who lost his recent bid for Suffolk County
Executive, will fill Grover's spot.

We understand that there may be quite a shake up of GOP leadership
in the Town of Babylon since Curcio was against taking any
Conservative Party help. It was only in Brookhaven Town where
the Republicans had Conservative backing and won. Recent GOP
Suffolk scandals spilled over in various ways in Suffolk voting.
Many Congressmen were very happy they didnt have to run this
year. Added to the mixed emotions about Vietnam, the general
disapproval of the high cost of living, the controversial Constitution,
no one was sure which way the voting would go.

Funny difference in talk after elections in contrast to before elections.
Take the Nassau County Budget GOP Sol Wachtler who is still
a Supervisor, is no longer talking about a 20% budget decrease.
As a matter of fact, Hempstead Presiding Supervisor Ralph G. Caso,
said that the Wachtler cut does not appear to be in the cards. Even
Eugene Nickerson, called for a seven cent cut, when just before the
election he had announced a possible slash of 12 cents. At the time,
the police budget had not been prepared, so the difference is in a pay
raise for policemen.
