Open Nassau: Modernizing Government to Meet The Needs of the Next Generation
Nassau County Comptroller Jack Schnirman was elected in November 2017. After earning a Master’s Degree in Public Policy from the Harvard University, John F. Kennedy School of Government, he returned home to clean up local government.
As Comptroller, Schnirman has brought a new energy to his position as the County’s Chief Financial Officer. He has increased transparency, launched smart audits and strengthened oversight of the county’s finances and contracting processes. His administration has forged new partnerships with leaders in the nonprofit, MWBE, and tech communities. He has been an advocate for protecting local businesses and is pushing to grow our economy.
He previously served as the Town of Brookhaven’s Chief Deputy Town Supervisor, helping stop the abuse of taxpayer dollars on no-bid contracts, patronage, and scandals.
Prior to being elected Comptroller, Schnirman served as Long Beach City Manager. He helped put the City on the road to recovery from the brink of bankruptcy. On Schnirman watch, Long Beach’s bond rating was upgraded twice and received nine consecutive credit positive reviews.
