Tab M. Hauser is running for Glen Cove city council member

Tab M. Hauser

Hauser said his 18 years as a Flower Hill Village trustee and 32 years in business helped prepare him for a seat on the Glen Cove City Council. He said he is skeptical of plans by the slate headed by Councilman Anthony Gallo to cut city spending by 10 percent over two years. Hauser supports the use of tax breaks in some cases to attract businesses to Glen Cove. Tax breaks would depend on how much of an economic boost a company would provide the city, he said. Hauser backs the planned $850 million residential and commercial redevelopment of the Garvies Point waterfront on what had been contaminated industrial land.

Hauser, 56, is running on the Conservative and Reform lines. Hauser lived in Glen Cove in the early 1980s and returned last year. He served as a trustee and deputy mayor in the village of Flower Hill. He sits on Glen Cove's Industrial Development Agency board. Hauser is the former president of an electronics components firm and a security products company and works as a freelance photographer and writer. He earned a bachelor's degree in political economics from Fordham University and a master of business administration from the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University. He and his wife live in Glen Cove and have two children.
