We’re proud to endorse Laura Curran for County Executive and we’re excited to join her team out on the trail.”

We have a mess in Mineola and Nassau County taxpayers, like the men and women of Steamfitters Local 638, are paying the price. I stand with them and everyone across our County who is ready to clean up our government. As County Executive, I’ll be an unapologetic fighter for the middle class because working men and women sustain our community as a great place to live and raise a family.”
