Suffolk County’s budget is a complex document that puts forward our priorities for the coming year.
The County’s $3.2 billion dollar budget assigns priorities to protecting the public health and safety of all residents in seemingly the most efficient and effective manner. Additionally, the county’s capital budget invests funding to maintain and improve the county's infrastructure, roads, bridges, buildings etc. The County Executive and members of the Legislator share the fiduciary responsibility to ensure that tax-payer dollars are spent wisely and appropriately. As Legislator in the 15th LD, I will bring my experience to bear and provide crucial input as the budgets are fashioned and priorities are set. I believe that the County should look at innovative financing proposals, cut spending where possible and solicit ideas for cost savings from front line workers.
