“There are many issues that we face as a County. Having lived here all my life, I have a unique perspective of where, as a county, we came from, where we are now and what we must focus on, or what our “vision for the future” should be. The tremendous growth we have seen in recent years has had an effect on all of us and we must work hard to maintain a good quality of life for ALL citizens of Nassau County. I have attended every port meeting beginning two years before I was elected to my first term. I have the Knowledge, the Experience, and the Leadership Ability to make sure YOUR Port continues to grow, prosper and provide jobs for ALL of Nassau County. I am the most qualified candidate for this position. I have several goals that I will work hard to accomplish in my next term. I will be discussing those at length in the coming weeks. As your Port Commissioner, I promise to work diligently toward these goals and not violate the trust that you have placed in me. I look forward to serving you four more years as your Commissioner for the Ocean Highway and Port Authority, District 2. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns and I earnestly ask for your vote to elect me as your Commissioner for Ocean Highway and Port Authority, District 2.”
