More than half of homeowners in Nassau County and almost one-third in Suffolk pay $10,000 or more in property taxes, compared with a national rate of 4.4 percent, according to Attom Data Solutions, a California-based real-estate information company. Previously she served as vice president of the South Manor Board of Education and spent time as a member of the Eastport South Manor Centralized High School Board of Education. The cuts are phased in over three years.
