Laura Curran has served as Nassau County Executive since 2018, when she became the first woman to ever hold the office. Representing more than 1.3 million residents, Curran has prioritized restoring trust and fiscal integrity to a Nassau County government long plagued by corruption and deficits. Curran has implemented unprecedented ethics reforms bringing transparency and controls to county contracts. She has also successfully advocated for new economic development and downtown revitalization projects across the County, helping increase the number of good-paying jobs for residents, providing additional housing options for residents across income levels and locating both near public transit.
Major crime in Nassau County has hit a historic low under Curran thanks to continued commitment to community policing, which the County Executive has built on by reopening two police precincts and breaking ground on a new police academy on the Nassau Community College Campus. Following through on a campaign promise, Curran also fixed a broken property assessment system that amassed enormous debt while unfairly burdening half of taxpayers.
Curran has made a commitment to making Nassau County a better place to live, work and play for all residents. Under her leadership the County has repaved a record amount of roadway throughout the county, increased accessibility and language access of government services, and dedicated significant funds to revitalizing parks throughout the county—with a commitment to making parks and playgrounds accessible to all. The accessibility and sustainability of all County services and programs is paramount and Curran has made a commitment to continuing to improve on these initiatives to better the lives of Nassau County residents.
