Itamar moved from Brooklyn to New Hempstead 16 years ago because he and his wife, Elana, wanted a quieter and more peaceful life for themselves and their children. Soon after, Itamar began his career assisting others in the county. He joined and remained an active firefighter for almost 10 years, and served his village, his town and his county in various elected and appointed positions. Most recently, he was Counsel to Thomas P. Zugibe, the Rockland District Attorney, working to keep our communities safer. Itamar's goals include: keeping taxes low and the quality of county government high; working with various groups to ensure that all needs of county residents are met; and ensuring that, whatever our differences, we can calmly and reasonably discuss the issues without resorting to the hateful rhetoric that is so endemic in today's political climate. Itamar looks forward to working with all open-minded people, of any political party or persuasion, to accomplish these goals.
