As a PTA mom and community leader, I believe we need a leader who will help make our county government work for us. I will be a strong voice in the Legislature, fighting against the overdevelopment that is plaguing our community. I will use my experience as Vice President at Capitol One to be a fiscally responsible voice that will help our community recover from the hardships faced over the last year.
I’m Carla Simpson, a PTA mom, community leader, and longtime resident of Legislative District 10. Thirty years ago, my parents chose to leave Brooklyn and raise me and my siblings in Hauppauge as my family highly values the suburban environment. With their support, I was able to become the first in my family to attend college, graduating from Dartmouth and Columbia, and am now raising my daughter, Ava, in the very same community that raised me over three decades ago. I’m ready to fight overdevelopment and protect the communities that helped to build my future. I have one goal in running to represent our community: making government work for us all.
On The Issues
I am a firm believer that elected officials have one overarching task in representing the people: making government work for the communities they serve. Unfortunately, many elected officials across Islip and Suffolk County seemed to have forgotten this. As your county legislator, I will fight to put an end to the overdevelopment plaguing our neighborhoods. I will continue the work of Legislator Cilmi and make the budget process more open to public view. And most importantly, I will be a fiscally responsible voice, ensuring our community can recover from the budgetary hardships faced over the last year without raising taxes and fees.
