Legislator Arnold W. Drucker is currently serving his first term as Nassau County Legislator for the 16th Legislative District, following his victory in a Special Election in November 2016 after the sudden passing of former Legislator Judith Jacobs. Legislator Drucker is proud to serve the communities of Plainview, Old Bethpage, Jericho, Syosset, Woodbury, Hicksville, Old Westbury, and Roslyn Heights. He serves on four Legislative Committees: Government Services and Operations, Planning, Development, and the Environment, Public Works and Parks, and Health and Social Services. A lifelong resident of Plainview, Legislator Drucker and his wife, Franny, have raised two children. He and his wife enjoy travelling when their schedules permit, and walking with their two Goldendoodles, Louie and Callie.
Legislator Drucker is committed to continuing the work and legacy of his predecessor, the late Judy Jacobs, with renewed passion and dedication. As Legislator, he will focus on issues affecting the lives of all Nassau County residents, and will advocate for transparency in government and fiscal responsibility, Tobacco 21 Legislation, amending Nassau County’s Civil Rights Bill, and for maintaining public transportation, including the restoration of Able-Ride bus service to the 16th Legislative District. Nourishing and protecting education and ensuring access to affordable higher learning is one of Legislator Drucker’s top priorities. Prior to his election to the County Legislature, Legislator Drucker had served on the Executive Board for Nassau Community College since 2012, when he was appointed by Governor Cuomo. Though he no longer serves on the Board, Legislator Drucker intends to continue to support the college in its laudable mission. “Ensuring that our community college is a strong academic institution that offers our local residents and young people an opportunity for an affordable higher education that can and should be the foundation of their success is important,” said Drucker.

After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from SUNY Buffalo, Legislator Drucker received his Juris Doctor from Rutgers University Law School. He is admitted to the New York State Bar Association and the New Jersey State Bar Association. His expertise in Contracts Law will serve as a firm foundation for his commitment to transparency and fiscal responsibility for the residents of Nassau County.
As a newly elected member of the Legislature, Legislator Drucker looks forward to cultivating long-lasting relationships within the community. Legislator Drucker is an active community member and serves on several boards, including the Board of Trustees of the Plainview Jewish Center. He is also a member of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce. Through his law practice, which he has owned and operated since 1982, he is a member of the Board of Directors of ElmCor, a community-based organization. ElmCor’s dynamic work includes running many programs, including a youth summer camp, as well as providing counseling services and programs for victims of domestic violence and drug abuse.
