Felix Quayson is running for Nassau County legislator, 3rd District

Felix Quayson

Quayson is concerned about the cost of tuition at Nassau Community College and the ability of young people to find good paying jobs in the county after they graduate. Quayson said he would advocate for more scholarships at NCC and to lower tuition costs at the school. "We need to help young people get solid jobs so they can be part of the middle class," he said. Quayson supports a proposal for the New York Cosmos soccer team to spend $400 million in private funds to build a soccer stadium, hotel and retail complex at Belmont Park. "This would bring more jobs to the district and to Nassau County" he said. "I am in favor of anything that will help our district and our community."

Quayson, 25, of Valley Stream, is on the Republican and Conservative party lines. He is making his first run for office. Quayson has a bachelor of science degree in health science and fitness management from Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, Maryland, a master of science degree from Hofstra University and expects to get his PhD next year in education leadership supervision and policy studies from American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts. Quayson is a professor at Washington Adventist University's School of Graduate and Professional Studies and serves on the board of directors of Kingdom Goals Inc., a Florida-based nonprofit that uses soccer to empower kids from underprivileged communities. He is married.
