Lamarre wants to hold the line on property taxes, rehabilitate abandoned homes in the district and expand programs for youths, including additional after-school programs, community centers and mentoring programs. “Too many youths in the district are getting in trouble with law enforcement,” he said. “We are trying to have a paradigm shift and a change of behavior of people in the Second District.” Lamarre is also concerned about political corruption and would focus on increasing oversight of employee time cards to ensure that county workers are working the hours they are paid for. “I will have zero tolerance for corruption,” he said. “We also need to fight patronage and wasteful spending.”

He also served as the secretary-treasurer of the Business Network International, a networking group. He is owner of County Cleaners Corporation in Uniondale. He is married, with a daughter
