Calm leadership

In any emergency, it's important to stay focused and remain calm.

As my aunt, Dr. Robyn Gershon (clinical professor of epidemiology at NYU School of Global Public Health), recently told Newsday (you can read the entire article at the bottom of this)

citizens (should) be "prudent and not panic," make contingency plans for school closures, and be conscious of handwashing and not touching mouths, noses, and eyes.

I was very proud when I read my Aunt Robyn's wise advice to Newsday readers. She is a true expert in the field of public health. I was also pleasantly surprised at the nice compliment she gave me:

As for politicians? Be calm, and present the facts. (Her nephew, she notes, is very calm.)

Here's the latest coronavirus fact sheet from Dr. Gershon.

Meanwhile, here's what you need to know about our campaign: Like you, we're watching the latest developments, making sure our staff and volunteers are safe, while still running a busy campaign. For now, we're continuing to build our grassroots campaign, petitioning to get on the ballot, and organizing in communities throughout the east end of Long Island. We are all pitching in. When it comes to events, we're working with hosts and making sure that all precautions are being taken.

If I'm elected, you can count on me to trust the scientists, share the hard facts and always tell you the truth. And remain focused, calm and steady.

For 25 years, I have been a common-sense businessman — not a career politician — so I look at things differently. I know about fixing dysfunction. It starts with hard work, a commitment to results, and perseverance — not scoring cheap political points. We can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
