Laura Curran’s bio
Laura Curran has served as Nassau County Executive since 2018, when she became the first
woman to hold the office. Representing more than 1.3 million residents, County Executive
Curran prioritized restoring trust and fiscal integrity to a Nassau County government long
plagued by corruption and deficits. County Executive Curran implemented unprecedented
ethics reforms, bringing transparency and controls to County contracts. The County Executive
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. After the pandemic hit Nassau County, she led the County’s response to protect
and inform residents, while maintaining essential County operations and advocating for small
businesses and schools.
Under Curran’s watch, major crime in Nassau County hit historic lows, thanks to continued
commitment to community policing, which the County Executive built on by reopening two
police precincts and breaking ground on a new police academy on the Nassau Community
College campus. Nassau County was named by U.S. News & World Report as the safest
community in America for 2020. Following through on a campaign promise, Curran also fixed a broken property assessment system that amassed enormous debt while unfairly burdening half of taxpayers. She mobilized the County’s resources to battle the pandemic, establishing an elaborate contact tracing program. County Executive Curran also secured much needed
funding and personal protective equipment for many businesses, advocating to reopen safely,
while protecting lives and livelihoods.
The County Executive made a commitment to making Nassau County a better place to live,
work and play for all residents, even while navigating Nassau through the pandemic. Under
County Executive Curran’s leadership, the County repaved a record amount of roadway,
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. As the pandemic led to unprecedented challenges and change, County Executive Curran has led with dedication to the people of Nassau County and remains a tireless advocate for Nassau’s residents and businesses, providing decisive leadership while protecting residents’ health and safely
