KEVIN C. SURDI
- Surdi, 35, of Bay Shore, left his job as a Huntington Hospital emergency room nurse to run for the first time, backed by the Conservative Party.
- As a business consultant and former hospital director of emergency services, he has trained major companies on how to hold difficult conversations and influence behavior changes.
- He got his bachelor’s in nursing from Molloy College and a master’s in business administration from Grand Canyon University.
- He helped turn the surgery recovery room and other hospital areas into intensive care units for COVID patients.
- He would end all COVID-related mandates, saying they have wreaked havoc on the economy, but he is not against vaccines.
- He favors cutting “frivolous” spending and government leaders’ salaries before raising taxes.
- Lowering healthcare costs is a top goal, and noting that the overdose antidote Narcan is available for free, he would propose offering certain lifesaving drugs free also, such as insulin and EpiPens.
- He would reverse bail reform, the expunging of criminal records and other changes he believes have increased crime.
