My brother, Adam Haber, is running for the Democratic nomination for Nassau County Executive in the primary on Sept. 10, 2013. Adam is fiscally responsible and conscious about social issues. As a private citizen and as a member of the Board of Education in Roslyn, Adam has demonstrated strong leadership skills. With creative thinking he saved the Roslyn school district millions of dollars. The district is now thriving. He is an astute businessman with a take-charge personality. Two of his major goals as County Executive will be to create jobs and restore fiscal competence in Nassau County.
Adam truly cares about people who have experienced difficulties in their lives. He is a board advisor for All Hands Volunteers, a charity which gives financial aid and lends support to those who have been devastated by natural disasters. In 2005, Adam went to Mississippi to help build homes for people who lost everything to Hurricane Katrina. In 2008, he spent time in Iowa removing mold and gutting sheet rock in houses that were damaged by flood waters. In 2010, he traveled to Haiti and helped with the installation of a water filtration system and the rebuilding of a school. Adam did all of this before he even thought of running for office.
After Hurricane Sandy, Adam directed All Hands Volunteers towards the north shore of Long Island and rebuilt 200 homes that were destroyed in Long Beach. As his brother, I can tell you that he has been an altruist all of his life; he truly cares about those in need. He also truly cares about Nassau County and has the ideas, initiative and skills necessary to be a highly competent and effective political leader.
