Burns, 50, is running on the Democratic and Working Families party lines. Burns is seeking her first term on the Nassau County Legislature.
- Burns said she would work to keep Nassau County's assessments accurate — a key approach to solving the county's fiscal issues — and work to educate residents about how the system works.
- Burns said she would enact ethics reform regulations and said county vendors and assessment grievance firms should be barred from contributing to the campaigns of candidates for county office.
- Burns said public financing of campaigns could help solve the problem of money in politics, but said any approach cannot be imposed on overburdened taxpayers.
