Councilman D’Esposito to Work with Zeldin to Protect Taxpayers and Keep Neighbors Safe

Tax Relief, Broken Economy, Supply Chain Crisis, Soaring Inflation, Energy & Drug Crises and Violent Crime Top D’Esposito’s Priorities

Hempstead Town Councilman Anthony D’Esposito has received the endorsement of Congressman Lee Zeldin (CD 1) as the Councilman launches his bid for the Fourth Congressional District.  Zeldin, the Republican and Conservative candidate for Governor, indicated that D’Esposito will be a valuable partner in government as they collaboratively work to protect taxpayers and keep neighbors safe.  The duo is committed to tax relief, fixing the broken economy, addressing the supply chain crisis, fighting violent crime and dealing with soaring inflation, as well as tackling the energy and drug crises.  Further, Zeldin said that D’Esposito’s background as an NYPD Detective will prove invaluable in making a positive impact on the issues of public safety and drugs at the federal level.

“I want to thank Congressman Lee Zeldin for endorsing my candidacy for Congress in the Fourth District,” said D’Esposito.  “With Lee Zeldin as our next Governor and me in Congress, we will constitute a powerful force to protect taxpayers and keep neighbors safe.”

“Anthony D’Esposito is a proven tax fighter, having cut or frozen taxes in each of the last four budgets as a Hempstead Town Councilman,” said Zeldin.  “What’s more, his experience as an NYPD Detective will ensure that residents have a knowledgeable and effective advocate for public safety at the federal level.  I enthusiastically endorse Anthony D’Esposito in his bid for Congress in the Fourth District.”      

D’Esposito has a vast amount of experience that has prepared him to serve the residents of the Fourth Congressional District in Washington.  His tenure as an NYPD Detective and his service as the Island Park Fire Department Chief, along with his work as a Town of Hempstead Councilman, have given him a unique perspective on providing tax relief, delivering quality government services, protecting the public against violent criminals and responding to emergencies. 

During the Councilman’s tenure with the NYPD, D’Esposito made almost 700 arrests, many of them associated with serious felonies including assault, drug dealing and murder.  As the Chief of the Island Park Fire Department, he led Hurricane Sandy recovery operations in the Village of Island Park.  Indeed, virtually every house in his hometown was flooded.  On the Hempstead Town Board, Councilman D’Esposito has helped prepare four consecutive budgets, each of which have frozen or cut taxes for residents of America’s largest township.  Finally, D’Esposito has spearheaded a drug awareness and Narcan training program, which has been applauded by law enforcement officials.

“Anthony D’Esposito has proven himself as a crime fighter in the NYPD, during his tenure as the Chief of the Island Park Fire Department and on the Hempstead Town Board,” said Zeldin.  “He has kept neighbors safe, fought crime, is taking on the drug epidemic, cut taxes and helped his community recover from a major natural disaster.  Anthony D’Esposito is the best qualified candidate to be our next Congressman in the Fourth District.”

“I want to thank Congressman Zeldin for his endorsement in my race for Congress,” concluded D’Esposito.  “I am eager to partner with him and make our communities safer while protecting taxpayers.  Together, we can fix the broken economy, reverse ‘criminal friendly’ laws, win the war on drugs and implement real tax relief.”
