Lawyers and judges are not exactly known for their fashion statements, but at a recent Dressed to a Tea event, they were the stars of the runway.
The Oscar-themed event was hosted by the WE CARE Fund of the Nassau County Bar Association and the Nassau County Women’s Bar Association, and raised money for several local charities. The night was a great way for members of the Nassau County legal community to relax and enjoy a fun evening with their colleagues at the Bar Association building in Mineola.

In stark contrast to run-off elections earlier in the year, Garden City’s general village election turned out to be quite routine and all candidates were elected. Voters trickled in to village hall to support the Community Agreement candidates: John J. Watras running for mayor along with trustees Dennis C. Donnelly (East), John A. DeMaro (Estates), Robert A. Bolebruch (West) and Richard V. Silver (Central). Allen S. Mathers ran for village justice.
The village’s new mayor, John Watras along with the trustees will officially swear in on April 1.
John Watras was elected Garden City’s 45th Mayor on March 19 during the general village election. He will be sworn in on April 1 at village hall. Watras, who won the February run-off election when challenged by fellow trustee Laurence Quinn, was unanimously selected by the Western Property Owners Association’s (POA) nominating committee.
A veteran of village politics, he has18 years of service under his belt with the Western POA having served as a village trustee for the past ten years. As trustee, Watras has held various positions including, Finance Chairman, trustee liaison to the Garden City Historical Society, the Garden City Public Library, Board of Cultural and Recreational Affairs, Zoning Board of Appeals, senior citizens, and the Environmental Advisory Board. Prior to his election to the village board of trustees, Watras served as President and held several director positions.

“The comptroller is there to protect the taxpayers.”
That is what former Nassau Comptroller Howard Weitzman says is the job of a comptroller. It’s something he says he did during his eight years in the position, and it’s something that he wants to do again. Weitzman was elected to the position in 2001 and 2005 before being narrowly defeated by current Nassau County George Maragos in 2009.
