I am running for County Legislature because I can make a difference for all of our communities. I believe that elected representatives should come from all walks of life. Today, we have too many professional politicians serving in office who are not getting the job done for our families. I believe my background as a doctor, businessman and community leader will bring a new perspective to Suffolk County government at a time when new ideas are desperately needed.
Over the next few months I will detail my ideas for improving Suffolk County. We must ensure integrity in government by ending ”pay to play” and enacting tough, independent ethics laws. We must ensure that individual communities get the help they need from the Suffolk County Police so our families are safe. The environmental challenges we face are complex. We must preserve our sole source aquifer and the Long Island Sound. Suffolk needs a new economic development policy which will create permanent employment for our youth. Finally, we need to dig into the County Budget, line-by-line, to reduce costs and keep our property tax burden from increasing.
I pledge to give you honest, responsive and creative representation as your next Suffolk County Legislator. Please feel free to contact me directly at 631-754-0277 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your concerns. I hope that by Election Day, November 8, I will earn your trust and vote.
