MINEOLA, NY – Coinciding with the release of the third and final installment from the three-part Local Economic Acceleration Plan (LEAP) series, Nassau County Comptroller Jack Schnirman welcomed a panel of experts for a roundtable discussion focused on innovative ideas that will drive our economy forward as we rebuild post-COVID. The roundtable discussion was streamed on Facebook Live.
The roundtable included:
The third chapter of the series features actions that could help cut costs for local government and increase the efficiency of taxpayer money. This release follows up the first and second installments in the series, which featured the first eight opportunities for New York State and local governments to help accelerate economic growth in our communities and focus on opportunities to generate revenue.
“As we complete our LEAP trilogy, I am appreciative of innovative local leaders for joining with us to share our focus on growing the local economy, generating new revenue streams for the County, and saving taxpayer dollars. We all recognize the critical need to look to innovative and proven solutions that can help reinforce Nassau County as a place with opportunity for all residents and
better align the County for the demands of the post-COVID economy,” said Nassau County Comptroller Jack Schnirman. “The process of putting together these reports was in-depth. In addition to being research driven, we talked to experts and stakeholders all over Long Island for months. We did deep engagement focusing on solutions and background research on best practices. We focused on what they saw as opportunities and priorities to highlight in our post-COVID economic recovery. I am proud of this report and am hopeful that policymakers will seize the opportunity and pursue the several avenues we highlighted that will allow Nassau County to continue to make good on ‘The Deal’ to our residents.”
