COUNTY EXECUTIVE CURRAN STATEMENT ON AMAZON DECISION TO CANCEL QUEENS HQ2 PLANS


Mineola, NY — “On behalf of all of Nassau County, I want to express deep disappointment in Amazon’s decision to cancel its planned move to Queens. Long Island was poised to reap enormous benefits from the move, which would have brought a flood of new high-wage jobs, business development, and much-needed tax revenue to the entire region.

Two-thirds of Long Islanders supported this move because they knew it would be good for them, their families, and their pocketbooks. I want to thank Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio for their tireless advocacy for this important project. I will continue to work to revitalize the County’s economy with innovative housing, jobs, and entertainment, as we are doing at the Nassau Hub. I urge Amazon to please reconsider their decision.”
