Peter J. Schmitt passes away

From Newsday:

 "Peter J. Schmitt, presiding officer of the Nassau County Legislature, died of a heart attack Wednesday, county officials said.Schmitt, 62, a Massapequa Republican, had the attack during a meeting in County Executive Edward Mangano's office, officials said.'

Schmitt is a long-term public servant who earlier this year got himself into some trouble and was found in contempt by a federal judge: http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2012/06/09/l-i-lawmaker-peter-schmitt-found-in-contempt-by-federal-judge-fined-2500

From a hockey standpoint, he also has not been a friend of the Islanders in the ongoing arena saga, as these blogs noted:
