David A. Adhami | General Election - Nov. 7, 2017

David A. Adhami is running for Nassau County legislator, 10th District

David A. Adhami

Adhami said, “Part of the reason I’m running is everything you hear on the news, from both sides of the political aisle, about corruption and waste,” Adhami said. “Being a child of Persian immigrants from a country, Iran, where elections traditionally were not held, I realize how fortunate I’ve been to grow up in this great country.” Adhami said, “I would like to be a voice for my people and the entire district.” Adhami said another reason he is running for public office is that he sees “too much wasteful spending.” He explained, “Coming from a long line of small business owners, I know that if a business doesn’t run itself in a financially responsible manner, then it goes out of business. When government doesn’t run itself in a financially responsible manner, they dip into the taxpayers pockets, increasing taxes and fees.” Adhami said, “I would stop the cycle of excessive spending and bring financial responsibility and accountability to the legislature.”

Adhami, 33, of Great Neck, is running on the Republican and Conservative party lines. Adhami is an attorney in private practice in Great Neck, specializing in civil litigation and criminal defense. He is a 2002 graduate of Great Neck South High School. Growing up, he worked in his family’s business, which included men’s clothing stores in Manhattan and Astoria, Queens. He earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Stony Brook University and a juris doctor law degree from Touro Law School. In October, he was elected to the board of Sephardic Heritage Alliance Inc., a charity that provides scholarships and other assistance to community members. Adhami is an active member of the Nassau County Bar Association. Adhami is single.
