Adam Haber isn’t the only Roslyn resident running for countywide office. Nassau County Legislator Wayne Wink (D-Roslyn) has formally announced his candidacy for Nassau County Comptroller.
“Nassau County’s financial house is broken, and I am running to fix it,” said Wink. “Our comptroller is supposed to be the chief fiscal watchdog for the county, but rather than following our budget crisis the current incumbent has spent his entire time in office campaigning for any office but the one he currently holds. We need thorough oversight, fiscal transparency and timely payments to those who provide goods and services to the county –and not politicized opportunism. The hard-working taxpayers of Nassau County deserve nothing less.”
Wink said he would run a vigorous, energetic, issues-based campaign alongside the rest of the Democratic slate. His policy platform, he added, will be centered on ushering in an era of oversight to Nassau County government – notably the proposed redevelopment of the Nassau County coliseum. Additionally, Wink said he would continue to propose a fresh, sensible approach to the assessment system and local government operations.
Wink has served as an elected official for over last six years as a local member of the Nassau County Legislature, where he has served as Deputy Minority leader and chairman of the Finance and Government Services and Operations Committees. Prior to his election to the Legislature, he served as a member of the North Hempstead Town Council from 2002-2007.
