“Nassau County Legislator Peter Schmitt was a great public servant, an even greater man, and a true friend. Like so many others whose lives were touched by Peter, I am stunned and saddened by his tragic passing.
Peter was a man of principles who never hesitated to stand up for what he thought was right. Throughout his service in the Nassau County Legislature, he was a tireless advocate for his constituents, as well as all the residents of Nassau County, and never stopped working on their behalf. He leaves behind a legacy that will last for generations to come.
My most heartfelt condolences go out to Peter’s wife and best friend, Lois, his daughter Samantha, and his entire family.”
