Arnold W. Drucker | General Election - Nov. 7, 2017

Arnold W. Drucker is running for Nassau County legislator, 16th District

Arnold W. Drucker

Drucker said that living in the community and working as an attorney for 30 years has helped him develop “a skill set” enabling him to “hold the county government accountable.” Drucker said that during his tenure, he has provided “the necessary oversight on so many contracts that are presented to the legislature,” which he said are “misleading, bloated and full of unnecessary patronage, mismanagement and waste.” He said that by “not approving these third-party county contracts . . . I am forcing the county government that has been rife with corruption for the past eight years to be accountable to the taxpayers.” He added that “the current Republican administration has caused this county to have unmanageable deficits that require an outside monitoring authority like NIFA [Nassau Interim Finance Authority] to provide oversight that shouldn’t even be necessary because they are not doing things in an open and transparent way.”

Drucker, 60, of Plainview, is running on the Democratic, Working Families and Women’s Equality party lines. Drucker is an attorney with a general practice in Jackson Heights, Queens. Drucker earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from University at Buffalo and a law degree from Rutgers University School of Law. Drucker was appointed in 2012 to the Nassau Community College board of trustees and chaired the college’s presidential search committee, which hired W. Hubert Keen. Drucker won a special election in November 2016 to fill the seat of the late Judy Jacobs. He is a member of the board of trustees of the Plainview Jewish Center. During the 1980s and 1990s, he served on the board of directors of the Plainview Little League. He is married and has two children.
