County Executive Bruce Blakeman will give his first State of the County address on Monday – but News 12 wanted to hear what Nassau residents think are the biggest issues facing the area.
Multiple residents in Oyster Bay and Woodbury said the roadways are in poor shape and need fixing.
"The roads are completely messed up right now, it's terrible,” said one resident. “I've had to replace my tire multiple times within one month."
When it comes to money, specifically the issue of taxes, there were mixed reactions from those News 12 spoke with.
"Young people today, I don't know how they're going to do it – but as a senior, Nassau County has been very good to us,” said Ginny Brown, of Bethpage.
"Taxes...are very high in Nassau County, that's nothing new. But I wouldn't want to be any other place except here," said another resident.
Blakeman beat Democratic County Executive Laura Curran, who led Nassau through the COVID-19 pandemic.
News 12 will be covering his address live at 6:30 p.m. on Monday from the County Legislature Building in Mineola.
