When I ask the residents of Glen Cove what’s the most important issue we face, the answer is always the same- OUR TAXES ARE TOO HIGH! Over the past 7 years the Suozzi administration has raised your property taxes an astounding 60%. Couple that with wasteful spending and $71million in debt and you have the reason why State Comptroller DiNapoli named Glen Cove the most fiscally stressed municipality on Long Island.
Why would things be any different with me as your Mayor? I’m a successful entrepreneur with a proven record of success in the business world. My years of running my own business with comparable revenues have equipped me with the tools to identify a problem and create a solution before it has a major impact on operations. I can and will make the tough decisions that are needed to bring our taxes under control, grow the revenue and manage the expense side of the business.
There is little room for argument that things are not good in our city. As bad as they are, there is nothing broke that my team and I can’t fix. A simple plan of savings through increased oversight of department managers and budgets in real time, early retirement incentives, making the golf course a cash positive operation and better utilizing our IDA and the resources at their disposal to assist our local merchants and attract new businesses are just a sampling of our plan to bring financial stability to our city and create a prosperous and healthy Glen Cove for years to come.
As your Mayor I will manage the city in way that hasn’t been done in a long time. With fresh ideas, a real business plan and a long term goal of reducing our taxes and debt while improving our quality of life. My team and I have a plan for a better Glen Cove and we need your support to make it happen.
God Bless America.
