Nassau County Executive
County Executive Laura Curran is the 9th County Executive in County history, and the first woman elected to the office. Ms. Curran, who previously served as a member of the Nassau County Legislature for three years, represents more than 1.3 million residents, with her priorities focused on reestablishing faith and trust at the highest levels of government, working with local municipalities to foster economic development and regional projects that support and enhance the use of mass transit, and the restoration of order to the county budget process.
A strong advocate for government reform, County Executive Curran issued an executive order shortly after taking office barring any member of her staff, including department heads, commissioners and deputies, from holding a position of authority in a political party or committee. A short time later, County Executive Curran issued a zero-tolerance executive order for gift-giving among vendors and county employees. As part of a broader contracting reform package, Curran also introduced the program, Ethical Standards in Contracting, which is overseen by the Deputy County Executive for Compliance and includes annual mandated compliance training to be required of all contracting officers.
As County Executive, Ms. Curran is committed to community-based organizations and has embraced ACLD’s mission to provide opportunities for children and adults with autism, learning and developmental disabilities to pursue enviable lives, promote their independence and foster supportive relationships within the community.
County Executive Curran began her career as a reporter at the New York Daily News and the New York Post and was an adjunct professor of journalism at SUNY Purchase. She started in public service as a Trustee on the Baldwin Board of Education from 2011-2014, serving as president in her final year. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts at Sarah Lawrence College, and lives in Baldwin with her husband and their three daughters, Claire, Julie, and Molly.
