Nassau County voters cast their election ballots in favor of who they wanted to see representing them in local offices all the way up to federal offices. This resulted in several new faces on our local governing bodies, including the Nassau Board of County Commissioners, who welcomed two newly seated commissioners in November.
We’re hopeful – as are all the people who cast their ballots during the election – that our county commission will be ready to tackle the difficult issues that lie ahead, including finally addressing our county’s fiscal sustainability issues. We’ve detailed it before, but Nassau County remains at a crossroads. We are blessed with abundant, unparalleled natural beauty and numerous locational advantages. Yet, as a community, we have difficulty in effectively planning needed changes and addressing the challenges of inevitable population growth.
