Statement from Minority Leader Kevan M. Abrahams Related to Ted Nugent, Eisenhower Park Rally

(MINEOLA, N.Y.) - The following is a statement from Nassau County Legislature Minority Leader Kevan M. Abrahams:

“We have been advised that Ted Nugent is no longer a part of this weekend’s scheduled rally at Eisenhower Park. While we are glad that the Nassau County Police Benevolent Association came to its senses and publicly disavowed its support for this event, we remain deeply troubled by their decision to use official PBA social media platforms to support and promote the participation of such a bigoted, divisive individual.”

“We were outraged by Ted Nugent’s presence because we have deep respect and appreciation for the thousands of Nassau County law enforcement officers that faithfully honor their oath and work diligently to uphold the values of dignity, honor and respect as they serve and protect our communities. They deserve better than the hatred that Ted Nugent continues to espouse.”

“We urge all participants to wear masks and take all necessary health precautions to protect themselves amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of all, we urge you to come in peace.”
