MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — In a county where registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by 100,000, incumbent Laura Curran lost her bid for re-election as Nassau County executive. As she exits office after leading 1.5 million residents through the pandemic, she recently sat down with CBS2’s Jennifer McLogan. “Two weeks before the election, polling by both parties calls your lead somewhere between large and enormous,” McLogan said. “Unfortunately, it’s sad. But it’s fear and anger that will often drive people to the polls,” Curran said. Canadian-born Curran, the first woman elected as Nassau County executive, was done-in by bail reform, although she criticized it as too...

Laura Curran appeals to the center-right for reelection

On a recent October evening, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran made her pitch before a room full of mostly white, older voters of the Plandome Heights Civic Association at a yacht club on Long Island Sound. “Good evening everyone. It’s late and it’s chilly, so I’m just going to get right into it,” she said before launching into a 10-minute stump speech covering COVID-19, policing, taxes and the true bread and butter of any local politician – paving roads. Curran had her talking points down pat: Nassau County has the highest rate of vaccination in the state; the county has been rated the safest in the nation two years running by U.S. News and World Report; and she tackled the tricky business of reassessing home values to make property taxes more accurate. She seemed well received, with the occasional head nod or chuckle at a light quip.
