Asked why residents should vote for him, he said, “My experience as a manager of a small business allows me to understand the importance of fiscal responsibility and how to best use the assets available. It’s time to look at the future of the Fire District. We need plans in place so that the district is on a stable fiscal footing for the future. Taxes are high in Oceanside and Nassau County. It’s not an accomplishment to remain under the 2 percent state cap. We should do better, and have no tax increases.”

The Board of Commissioners oversees the Fire Department budget and makes major purchases, while the day-to-day operations of the department are handled by the chiefs.

Candidates must gather 25 signatures of registered Oceanside voters to get on the ballot. The deadline for submitting petitions is Nov. 28.
