It may be Cooper Macco‘s first run for public office, but this Democrat has deep Long Island roots. Macco has gotten to know his neighbors and his community well throughout the years, and he sees his bid for Assembly District 12 as a way to give back. After witnessing the stress and struggle that unaffordable childcare has had on his community, Macco wants to prioritize expanding the child tax credit and making universal pre-k a reality. Like a true Long Islander, he is a self-described water rat! Between campaigning, kids, and a career as an attorney, he always makes time for boat trips and family outings to the beach!
