After 10 highly successful years as supervisor of the Town of North Hempstead, Great Neck’s own Jon Kaiman has stepped down, already beginning two new roles – special advisor for Long Island Storm Recovery and chairman of NIFA, both appointments by Governor Andrew Cuomo. We heartily congratulate our good friend and neighbor, Jon Kaiman, for these two new exciting challenges and we thank Jon for all that he has done for the Town of North Hempstead.
As town supervisor, Jon’s strong leadership and his great visions for our town have brought so much to the Great Neck community and beyond. For Jon, it was never just the town; his plans, his dreams, his work extended, too, to the villages and to each individual mayor.
Fearsome “once-in-a-100-year storms,” emergency plans, business revitalization, roadwork and so much more, they all extended from town-to-village, from village-to-town. With everyone working together, public officials were all able to join in as they kept the “great” in Great Neck. And, thanks to Jon, we all moved forward as one.
We have a tremendous amount of faith in Jon as he takes these new reins. We are confident that Long Island’s storm recovery will now be on the right path. We are highly confident, too, that Jon’s wisdom and talent will guide Nassau County through its turbulent financial times. Yes, we are comfortable that life will now be better in Nassau County, they we will all reap the benefits of Jon Kaiman’s experience and his knowledge.
Here’s to a wonderful new future for Jon Kaiman! And, yes, here’s to a wonderful new future for us too. Jon will remain our neighbor, and our friend, and we hope that these new steps bring not only a brighter future for all of us, but a beautiful future, too, for Jon, for his wife Kim, and for their three children.
