Donald N. MacKenzie | General Election - Nov. 7, 2017

Donald N. MacKenzie is running for Nassau County legislator, 18th District

Donald N. MacKenzie

MacKenzie said that he will “continue to support an agenda that emphasizes protecting taxpayers, public safety and economic development.” He says the legislature’s current Republican majority has “saved each homeowner thousands in taxes at the county level.” MacKenzie said that under Republican leadership Nassau County enjoys “the lowest unemployment rate in the region” and said Republicans have launched an “aggressive plan” for Nassau County’s future focused “on job creation, retention and attracting new business.” He said the legislature has “made additional savings through the downsizing of government, reducing the county workforce by over 2,000 workers and consolidating departments.” In light of recent corruption scandals, MacKenzie said the legislature has passed laws banning felons from holding office and amended the county code of ethics to include a “politically diverse” board of ethics. He said the legislature is also requiring ethics training for county officers and employees. MacKenzie added, “We have passed laws to enhance the transparency and openness of county government, including new disclosure requirements for lobbyists, vendors and consultants.”

MacKenzie, 47, of Oyster Bay, is running on the Republican and Conservative party lines. He is seeking his third term on the legislature. MacKenzie is an attorney in private practice in Oyster Bay hamlet. He graduated from SUNY Oneonta with a degree in business economics and received a law degree from the University of New Hampshire School of Law. MacKenzie started as a prosecutor in the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency. He was a court attorney in the Nassau County District Court law department and was a prosecutor for the Village of Roslyn Harbor. He served as a commissioner in the Oyster Bay Water District and was second vice president of the Nassau-Suffolk Water Commissioners Association. He is married and has two children
