Senator Balboni Runs for Reelection
''New York will come back ... we will be stronger,'' says New York State Senator Michael Balboni, a resident of East Williston. Although a great deal of the senator's time during this post-9/11 period has been devoted to his enormous responsibilities regarding emergency management, he is equally proud of the long list of diverse legislation he has developed these past few years. Balboni is running for his fourth term in the 7th Senate District.
Murray Challenges Balboni This November
"There's a high level of hypocrisy in the Senate and someone has to get out there and talk about it," state senatorial candidate E. Chris Murray of Westbury said weeks before the Nov. 5 election. He vows to do just that if voters let him grab current Senator Michael Balboni's seat in the 7th District, which covers several communities, including Floral Park, Hicksville, New Hyde Park, Westbury, Mineola, Manhasset, Port Washington and Great Neck.
