As an NYPD Detective, Anthony made more than 600 arrests in connection with murders, shootings, assaults, bribery and possession of illegal firearms. He stood up against the deadly cashless bail law adopted by Democrats in Albany, and advanced by Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in Congress, and he’s witnessed the havoc that illicit drugs and dangerous crimes can wreak on neighborhoods. That’s why Anthony has made his commitment to public safety the centerpiece of his public service. To combat the heroin crisis affecting suburban communities, Anthony has hosted hundreds of Narcan training forums—training and equipping over 10,000 residents with lifesaving Narcan doses.


As a Hempstead Town Councilman, Anthony believes in protecting taxpayers by “doing more with less” and has used this approach to provide effective, conservative leadership in America’s largest town. He has cut or frozen taxes in each of the last four budgets passed by the Hempstead Town Board—resulting in multiple credit rating upgrades from respected Wall Street credit rating agencies Moody’s Investors Service and S&P Global Ratings.
Anthony led the Town’s pandemic response, providing assistance to local businesses, healthcare providers and struggling families. As Councilman, Anthony helped address food insecurity, enable businesses to keep their doors open and support local schools, hospitals and first responders. This built upon Anthony’s work to help Nassau County in the aftermath of the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy.


Recognized for his unyielding commitment to Sandy recovery efforts, Anthony was appointed Co-Chairman of New York State’s Community Reconstruction Plan. As Councilman, Anthony was responsible for passing several Sandy initiatives that helped streamline the local recovery process.


Anthony serves on the Board of Directors for the Francis X. Pendl Nassau County Firefighters Museum and Education Center and is on the Board of Directors of Limb Kind Foundation. He is a Second Battalion Delegate and a member of the New York Association of Fire Chiefs, as well as an honorary member of the Nassau County Firefighters Pipes and Drums.


Anthony also serves on the Board of Directors of RVC Blue Speaks, an organization that helps promote autism awareness. He is a member of the Italian Americans in government and is a co-founder of the Jimi Gubelli Foundations. He is also a member of the Fraternal Order of Police, 3rd Degree Knight, Father Joseph O’Connell Council Number 3481, Knights of Columbus of Oceanside and a member of the Order Sons of Italy in America, Judge Frank A. Gulotta Lodge Number 2180. He also serves as Co-Chairman of the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program.


The East Rockaway Chamber of Commerce honored Anthony as “Man of the Year” in 2016 and he was also honored by the Oceanside United Soccer Club as “Volunteer of the Year” for 2019-2020. Councilman D’Esposito is the proud recipient of the “Anthony D’Esposito Award for Excellence” in 2020 by the Board of Directors of the Law Enforcement Officers Weekend (LEO Weekend), an organization which supports law enforcement families affected by a line of duty death or serious injury. In 2021, Anthony received the Congressman Norman Lent Award for Public Service and the SCOPE Educational Services Community Service Award for Outstanding Service to the Island Park Union Free School District. He was named “Man of the Year” by the Chabad of Hewlett and has received the Nassau County Francis X. Pendl Humanitarian Award, Town of Hempstead Distinguished Service Award, and more than 50 police department medals for his commitment to service and protecting residents, including the 2016 Public Service Award for the New York Police Chief’s Benevolent Association. He was also honored by the Nassau County Sheriff’s Correction Officers Benevolent Association for his dedicated public service.
