Making our Government Look like our County

Laura Curran has pledged to make our government look like the citizens it represents, and that starts by hiring women.

Currently, under County Executive Ed Mangano, only 4 of the 21 senior County positions – including Commissioners, Deputy County Executives, County Attorney, Sheriff, Assessor, and Treasurer – are held by women. That’s unacceptable and it needs to change.

As part of her platform, Laura Curran has set a goal of staffing at least 50% of her senior leadership team with women. By bringing new people into government, Laura will fulfill her pledge to hire based on what you know, not who you know. Additionally, Laura’s plan will finally shake things up and end a failed status quo that created the mess in Nassau County. Women bring a different approach to government and Laura's administration will recognize the value of women and people of color in leadership positions.

Furthermore, Curran has pledged to form a government that recognizes the unique and growing diversity of Nassau County. Every day, Nassau County’s communities of color grow and the County’s government should reflect that. That’s why Laura plans not only to increase the number of people of color in leadership positions, but also to increase contracting opportunities for Minority and Women-Owned Businesses and recruit the most talented applicants for County government – not just hire from “the good old boys club.”

About Laura

I'm not a career politician. I'm a taxpayer, a homeowner, and a parent. And as a County Legislator, I've had a front-row seat to Ed Mangano's rampant mismanagement and culture of corruption.

I'm running for County Executive because Nassau residents deserve a fresh start. Let's fix the mess in Mineola and return our government to the taxpayers who deserve better than endless indictments and self-dealing.
