Brooks' husband, Bob Weisner, was arrested earlier this afternoon and arraigned on several charges in connection to the state's investigation. She refused to answer questions in that regard.
"There are two things I don't talk about- personnel issues and personal issues. My husband is a personal issue. As for me I can tell you that I am the County Executive today. I'm going to be the County Executive tomorrow, and I believe that I have two years left on my term. So you're going to be seeing a lot more of me," she said.
An independent investigation has found that Brooks was not involved in any wrongdoing regarding the local development corporations.
