Mr. Masri has interests in gardening, saltwater aquariums, and a touch of local politics. He then jumped into local politics for the first time when he became aware of multiple improprieties within the village government. To make a difference, Mr. Masri ran for Trustee in the 2012 election for a seat on the Board of Trustees in the village of Saddle Rock within Great Neck, County of Nassau, Long Island. His mission - To put an end to the local corruption enabled by the Board of Trustees to facilitate the Mayor's agenda. Sasha strongly believes in transparency between the village and the government. He wants to listen to his neighbors - explore capital improvements that have been neglected for decades. Changing the formula on how the village calculates the property tax. Most importantly, Sasha wants to utilize his degree in Public Accountancy and his experience to dig into the financial numbers. He believes if he analyzes the cash in and the cash out of the village's finances and third-party contracts, it may shed light on why the real estate tax is high compared to other villages of the same size. Sasha has stated that he has learned a lot from the experience. How the local government is supposed to work (which is why he ran in the first place) rather than how it's working. In order to be on the ballot, he had to secure approximately 250 signatures from the residents by going door to door which took a few weeks because there are 750 households within the Village. "The nicest part of the experience was being able to meet my neighbors."
