His district includes the towns and villages of Cedarhurst, East Rockaway, Hewlett, Woodmere, Inwood, Island Park, Lawrence, and Oceanside, along with the barrier island from Atlantic Beach to Point Lookout.

Ari plans to combat rising lawlessness, hate crimes, and acts of anti-Semitism and is firmly against the “defund the police” narrative and stands firmly beside our first responders.
