Local Environment and Economy

Renewable energy is the future and rapidly growing. Long Island needs to lead in the economic boom that will result.

Suffolk County can become a hub for clean energy development and manufacturing, with great union jobs. That’s why I strongly support the development of wind and solar energy, the transition to electric vehicles, and the decreased use over time of coal and oil.

Climate Change is one of the greatest long-term threats facing Long Island. Rising sea levels cause coastal flooding – we see it in Mastic Beach, we see it in Riverhead, we see it in Montauk. As a coastal area that experiences extreme weather, our safety and property are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. We must take steps locally and nation-wide to save our planet or else we will be among the first to suffer.

It takes more than lip-service to do big, important things. We need to elect government representatives that share our vision and commit to tackling head-on the greatest challenges we face. It’s time for change.

The specifics:

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.
