Flotteron, 57, of Brightwaters, is running on the Republican and the Libertarian Party lines. The incumbent is running for his second term.
- Flotteron said the overriding issue facing the county is the “fiscal stress” on county finances led by “total mismanagement” by the county executive. His solution: “We have to say no to some things.” And examine expenses to find a way to do things "cheaper."
- He’s also focused on gang violence and the opioid epidemic.
- He wants the county to find creative ways to fund law-enforcement priorities, such as applying for federal grants, and working with federal immigration and customs services on local policing issues.
