Like and share my site please! Ned Newhouse is running for Town Council for the Town of Oyster Bay, a 60-year-old businessman from Woodbury New York. He grew up in Massapequa and attended Birch Lane school in Bar Harbor. He’s had homes in Syosset and now Woodbury where he has raised his family for the last 18 years.
Hailing from a family with a long tradition of hard work, integrity and honor, Ned Newhouse has been involved with speaking out about issues that face the people of the Town of Oyster Bay and Nassau for years. “People deserve dignity and for their government to treat them with respect of their interests and their hard-earned money. This is not happening and that’s all my reasons for running to help us all.”
“I got involved in government because the people’s interests were not being represented. It was sickening that our taxes kept rising when inflation was flat, the roads became a horror, and all the while, corruption, waste and fraud prevailed. I had a choice, I could sit around and complain, or I could do something about it. I’m running to utilize my business turnaround and negotiating experience for the benefit of the 300,000 residents of The Town of Oyster Bay. Its high time that someone stand up and say NO to political favors, $850+ an hour outside law firms, patronage jobs, contracts for bad actors and treating people like the enemy for demanding ethics. I’m here for one reason only: serve the people with dignity and respect, to make TOB a great smart place to live and bring a business to!
Ned is a self-made business man with a BS Degree in Printing and Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1984. While he started work for his family, he left the family business 25 years ago, and blazed his own trail as a media entrepreneur, working in startups in the technology and digital media. At 25 he became the Associate Publisher of Mobile Office Magazine in the early days of Cellular and then co-founded one of the first companies in the Digital Advertising, 24/7MEDIA in 2004. He was its first VP Sales, hiring and leading a 50-person sales force from dollar 1, generating over $60 Million Dollars in profitable revenue. Four years later he became the Chief Revenue Officer of Bankrate.com and help lead one of most successful turnarounds in the Internet. Bankrate was a 25-year-old company that had never made a dime in its history and was an 83-cent penny stock. Four years later Bankrate became a $50 stock at a 28% profit. He knows how to say no to bad ideas, unify people and smartly negotiate like its his own money while ALWAYS telling the truth. After several other C level positions in private practice, he returned to his family business Conde Nast 8 years ago, where he works as an Executive Director.
“You’ll find me always eager to learn more, really listen to people so I can make decision based on your needs, not my own. I want to bring integrity back to The Town of Oyster Bay. We must have a plan that is shared everyone in public to get a long-term road repair and repaving plan, stop pet million-dollar projects, protect our wonderful and prize-winning shorelines, enhance our safety, our schools, reduce our expenses and rid ourselves of out of control debt! Like me, you made a choice to raise a family here after you were probably raised here too. We must leave something wonderful for our children and their families! What do you have now? $700 Million in debt or $7,000 for every family! 30 cents of every dollar you pay in taxes, just goes to paying the interest on debt. That is a horror show today and a definite bankrupt future unless we undo the cycle of bad behavior.
I am here to serve YOU! Unselfishness is what you we all should expect from government and public servants, and when you don’t get it, its time to make a change for it. I ask for your support in this quest of good with at least your vote for TownCouncil on November 5th.
