Jake Gutowitz

Jake Gutowitz is running for Nassau County legislator, 13th District

Jake Gutowitz


Gutowitz, 22, of Wantagh, is running on the Libertarian line. Gutowitz graduated in May with a computer science degree from LIU Post and worked part time as a software developer for a Long Island company before entering the county legislator race.


  • Gutowitz vowed, if elected, to fight tax increases and “do my best” to cut spending.
  • He is a proponent of ranked-choice voting, an electoral system in which voters rank preference on their ballots, which he called “a much more democratic way of electing candidates” because it “eliminates the idea that a vote for an independent or third-party candidate is a waste.”
  • He said that he would work to end the use of red-light cameras, which he called “dangerous, unconstitutional surveillance” by the government.
