Ed Mangano was a horrible County Executive, a horrible campaigner and his record is that of failure. His lies were many and were easily refutable. You actually have to work hard to fail against that. But that is seemingly what the Nassau County Democrats have done. The message of "tea party" and "guns" is not a message for a County Executive race. That was an incredible waste of time and resources. So-called consultants are hired from outside the County that know nothing about the voters here. Stop hiring poli-sci majors and start hiring communications experts.
Sadly when the Nassau Democrats had the last 2-4 years to make their case, they did not. They had 2 years to develop a bench of strong candidates, they did not. We have 2 years to rebuild. Two years from tonight. Join me.
