Laura Curran Protects Taxpayers While Corrupt Political Machine Uses More Than $100,000 in Public Funds to Finance Political Agenda

Laura Curran Releases New ad. to Set the Record Straight on Who’s Really Looking Out for Taxpayers

BALDWIN, NEW YORK - Documents procured through a recent Freedom of Information Law request submitted to the Town of Oyster Bay reveals that thus far in 2021 the Town of Oyster Bay has already spent more than $100,000 in taxpayer money to attack Nassau County Executive Laura Curran. From January through April of this year, the Town of Oyster Bay sent out 486,625 political mailpieces that cost a total of $112,842.50 to produce and mail.

Previously, Newsday has reported that the Towns of Hempstead and Oyster Bay have sent hundreds of thousands of political mailers at taxpayers’ expense in an attempt to discredit the County Executive.

The County Executive has kept her promises to put taxpayers first: She took on the political machine by enacting the first ever gift ban for County employees. She refused to put her name on County signs at the taxpayers’ expense. She achieved multiple budget surpluses thanks to dogged fiscal discipline. She secured the first positive bond rating for Nassau County in fifteen years. When making the revisement, Moody's cited "three straight years of improved financial results."

“The County Executive knows real leadership means taking on the tough fights and doing the right thing, even when it’s hard,” said Curran Campaign Manager Shelby Wiltz. “These taxpayer-funded, partisan attacks are an insult to Nassau taxpayers. While the machine printed propaganda on the taxpayers’ dime, the County Executive balanced the budget and secured a positive financial outlook for Nassau County for the first time in fifteen years. In response to the machine’s misuse of taxpayer funds, Curran for Nassau is releasing a new video ad, Taking Out the Trash, to set the record straight.”
