Ambrosino said the town needs to focus on not raising property taxes while increasing development. He said the town should have existing shuttered buildings and underperforming real estate renovated for new incubators and apartments. He said the town should focus on preserving beaches and natural open space and encourage the use of parks. Ambrosino suggested increasing mass transportation to help residents get to Hempstead outdoor activities and improve access to New York City. Ambrosino has touted accomplishments with established market-rate rental housing and passing a crackdown on absentee landlords of blighted properties.
