Orthodox five towns resident to run for the Nassau County Legislature

The Nassau Republican party has a fresh face of its own, and he is determined to be a strong
representative for the frum community. Naftali (Nathan) Wein was born and raised in Lawrence and developed a passion for politics while studying in Fordham Law School. Wein attended Yeshiva Ketana, Darchai, and Yeshiva of Far Rockaway.

After getting married, Wein moved to Inwood and noticed an immediate drop in county legislative representation. At the same time, Wein was also shocked by the impact of the Nassau County Executives reassessment on local taxpayers. Wein’s opponent has supported reassessments back-door tax hikes.

Driven by his excitement for politics and the desire to improve his community’s well-being, he decided to run for Nassau County Legislator for the third district, which is comprised of Inwood, North Woodmere, Valley Stream, Elmont, and parts of Floral Parkand Lawrence.

Although we are often too busy with our everyday lives to be concerned with politics, it is important to realize just how much local elected officials influence our community.

In 2016 the Nassau County Legislature passed a law which denies work to companies that boycott Israeli goods and services or divert from Israeli businesses. With an estimated $3 Billion annual budget, this is a lot of money that will never fall into the hands of people who hate Israel.

This anti-BDS law was passed with the help of current local elected officials such as Howard Kopel who represents a portion of the five towns. Wein seeks to ensure that this bill is never overturned by Nassau Democrats.

Wein will also work hand in hand with Nassau’s police departments to provide enhanced police presence by our local Shul’s during Yomim Tovim and major events.

However, there is much work to be done, and if Wein is elected he will be involved in everything that occurs within Nassau County. Wein wants to lower taxes, install an elected tax assessor, and improve the water and electric quality.

“Too often does our power go out, and our water flow brown, and we need a representative who will stand up for the people”. Wein has a point. His opponent, Carrie Solages, was arrested in 2017 for a very public domestic abuse issue which may have been partially caught on camera. It seems that Solages was upset that his girlfriend has stolen his Marijuana. Solages was charged with assault and child endangerment and has kept a low profile ever since.

Wein is a husband, father of two, Fordham Law student, and a Carpenter. His wide array of interests gives him a unique perspective on how to help both business owners and professionals. The election will be held on November 5th , however there is early voting this year so votes can be made prior to that.
