After being elected to the Roslyn Board, Adam Haber realized that there was no direct, transparent way for citizens to voice their concerns about government. That's why he created Suggestion Box, a non-partisan forum whose goal is to create a better, more efficient government for Nassau County.

With Suggestion Box, citizens can:

  • Educate themselves about the issues facing Nassau County
  • Submit ideas to improve country government
  • Vote and comment on the ideas they like or dislike
  • Learn about the candidates running for office
  • Participate in weekly straw polls on current issues
  • Easily learn how to contact their local representatives

Our goal is the development of a public forum where citizens can learn about important policy issues in Nassau County and let their ideas and views be known.
