Ferretti said, “As a lifelong Levittown resident and a graduate of Division Avenue High School, I have seen far too many of my classmates having to leave Nassau County as a result of the high cost of living.” Ferretti said one of the main reasons he decided to run was to “ensure that we hold the line on property taxes,” adding that he wanted to “expand the tax base by bringing in business to Nassau County, rather than increasing the tax burden on residential property owners.” Ferretti pointed to his work as a member of the Hempstead Town Industrial Development Agency, where he said he “voted to implement additional requirements for applicants to increase transparency while bringing business into the Town of Hempstead. I want to bring these principles to Nassau County.” He also said he would revamp the county’s ethics board to ensure it can be an independent voice.
