Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano has focused on rebuilding Nassau County's economy by creating private sector jobs and putting people back to work. As a former small business owner, Ed Mangano knows firsthand the challenges New York businesses face because he has faced them too.
To improve the business climate, the County Executive has worked tirelessly to attract homeland security jobs, along with composite manufacturing and film and television industry jobs to the former United States Navy-Grumman Corp. property on the eastern end of Nassau County. In doing so, the County has experienced growth in jobs and increased revenue from these industries. Nearly 15,000 jobs are now on this property.
County Executive Mangano and the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency have approved economic development projects that will create nearly 24,000 new private sector jobs. According to Camoin Associates, an independent economic analysis firm, these projects are estimated to generate more than $42 billion in economic activity for the local economy.
Building on his efforts to attract new jobs, improve the local quality of life, and increase County revenue without raising property taxes, County Executive Mangano created a plan to enhance the Hub's present sports and entertainment center by addressing obstacles to redeveloping the full 77-acres site while adhering to the Town of Hempstead's mixed-use zoning requirements for the property. The Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum will soon be transformed into a world class arena with surrounding entertainment and job opportunities.
