Nassau voters should elect a comptroller that is the most qualified, possesses a CPA background for the position, is honest and looks out for taxpayers. Howard Weitzman was all of the above when he was in office. Howard Weitzman brought in the most qualified professional staff, which proved its worth by always looking out for the interests of Nassau’s residents. Even Maragos believes Howard Weitzman staffed his office well and complimented him on how he ran his office. Alas, Maragos didn’t follow in his predecessors footsteps.
Howard Weitzman is a CPA with private and public sector financial experience. During his eight years as Nassau County Comptroller there were balanced budgets every year, 13 bond upgrades, and he produced ground-breaking audits of county agencies and special districts.
The choice is evident in this year’s comptroller race. Howard Weitzman is competent, experienced and trustworthy.
