Lavine to Make Run for Assembly
More than 75 people braved the first heat wave of 2004 on Tuesday, June 8 to be at Village Square in Glen Cove at half past noon to hear the announcement from Glen Cove City Councilman Chuck Lavine that he is a Democratic candidate for the New York State Assembly's 13th District. Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp spoke well of the man she appointed to a city council seat vacated by Anselmo Grasiosi, who gave up the seat to relocate with his family. Mayor Holzkamp said, " As you know, I appointed Chuck Lavine to the city council because I know his wonderful character, great potential and his willingness to serve. Whatever role he plays in government, I know he will do the best he possibly can for his constituency. I wish him the best of luck."
Mayor Holzkamp Receives Election Opinion
Glen Cove Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp has announced that State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer has issued his opinion regarding the empty seat on the city council. Mayor Holzkamp said, "Mr. Spitzer's opinion states that it is within the governor's discretion to call a special election to fill the vacancy. Since the certification by the board of elections of the tie for the seat last February, I have maintained that the options available were unclear. Indeed, this was a rare event in the history of our city as well as the State of New York. It took a lot of patience as we waited for the State Attorney General's office to determine the proper procedures. I welcome the special election."
