Gunther, 30, of Levittown, is running on the Libertarian party line in his first bid for public office. He is working toward an associate degree at Nassau Community College and works as a FedEx operations administrator.
- Wants to improve county infrastructure and privatize roads, granting naming rights for specific streets to companies who agree on upkeep as a way of reducing taxes. He says local libraries and parks can also be privatized, funded with voluntary solutions, and that the current county tax assessment system needs to be replaced.
- Opposes red-light cameras as dangerous, saying the fines for these violations are “money grabbers” for the county.
- Favors legalization of all drugs, though he says he’s never used them. Gunther opposes Nassau’s recent opt-out of decriminalization of marijuana.
