Fiscal Responsibility

As Vice President at Capitol One, I was responsible for successfully managing over $1 billion in assets. In other words, I know a thing or two about what it means to be fiscally responsible. Here in Suffolk County, it is time we have a representative who knows how to take a serious look at our finances and determine how to keep our budget on track while also protecting the hard working people of our community. Once in office, I promise to do just that. Programs like the notorious red light cameras put a serious strain on our community, continuing a trend of Suffolk County “nickel and diming” its residents while also disproportionately affecting communities of color. Our government shouldn’t set out aiming to raise revenues by finding minor violations and hassling hard-working people. Using my large-scale financial experience, I will fight to end the wholesale exploitation of hard-working Suffolk County residents to fill the budgetary holes created by irresponsible governance.
