Williams said she wants to focus on unincorporated communities and cut through red tape between residents and Hempstead Town. She said she is concerned about redistricting that has taken away rights of residents to be fairly represented. She said contracts are not fairly awarded through open bidding and town jobs need to be more publicly advertised. Williams said she wants to bring resources to parents with special needs children. She said she would ban tax-funded political mailers, and she plans to work with small businesses and labor unions to promote growing the economy and shopping local.
