Governor Cuomo proposed a 10-point Women's Equality Act which has stalled in the New York State Senate. Both Democrats and Republicans agree on the first nine points; the 10th point will codify Roe v. Wade. Democrats and pro-choice groups agree with the governor's plan. Republicans and those opposed to a woman's right to choose are against it. Do you support all 10 points of Governor Cuomo's proposed Women's Equality Act?

For the past three years, Nassau County's 7,000-plus employees have had a wage freeze imposed by NIFA (Nassau Interim Finance Authority). The wage freeze was instituted because, in recent years, Nassau County government has had a difficult time balancing its budget. Though Nassau County's sales tax revenue has increased as a result of economic activity due to the cleanup and rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy, county workers' wages have remained frozen. Do you believe the county executive should lift the wage freeze and honor previously negotiated contracts sometime in 2014?
