Moller said her priority, if elected, would be to clean up potential town corruption. She said she wants to see an inspector general hired to review the town’s contracts. Moller said she’s concerned about affordable housing options within the town. Her goal is for young residents who grew up on Long Island to return to raise their own families, but they often can’t afford to buy a house or rent an apartment in Hempstead. “There’s no option but having a house here,” she said. Moller wants to see the town work with school districts and Nassau County to combat the opioid crisis because she said currently different entities are working separately. “It’s something that’s devastating to our communities and it’s in every community right now,” she said. Moller also hopes to reduce the amount of mass town mailings and would start an email program instead.
