Thank You

Thank you once again for choosing me to represent the Fourth Councilmanic District on the Hempstead Town Board. I was truly touched by the overwhelming amount of support I received on Election Day.  The nearly 18,000 votes, an astonishing 71% of total votes cast, was not only humbling but also recognition that my work for our community has made a difference.


Together with Supervisor Kate Murray, not only have I consistently fought to hold the line on taxes - but have actually reduced total town taxes for the past three consecutive years.  The Towns AAA Bond Rating from Wall Street - the highest available, positive fiscal outlook and Excellence in Financial Reporting Award for seven straight years underscore the type of quality government with outstanding services that youd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.


Im also committed to continuing to provide my stellar constituent services to neighbors; if you have a problem or concern youd like addressed  please dont hesitate to call my office at 516-812-3200 or e-mail me at  Id be happy to help.


Although I dont get inaugurated until January, I am ready to continue fighting for lower taxes, more efficient government, municipal services that are the envy of countless municipalities across the nation and the preservation of the outstanding suburban quality of life we treasure - and want for our children and generations to come - here in Hempstead Town.


It is an honor to have been re-elected to serve another term.  I pledge to continue providing my outstanding services and representing every neighbors; my pledge to you is that you will never regret putting your trust in me.
