A New Day Dawns in North Hempstead
New Year's Day 2004 was a day of changes for the Town of North Hempstead. After 10 years as supervisor of the town, May Newburger chose not to run again and she was succeeded by Great Neck attorney Jon Kaiman. Of historic significance was the swearing in of the first town board elected by councilmanic districts. Instead of four council members elected townwide, there are now six, each elected from an individual district. The change was noted by many distinguished guests at the ceremony, which was held at Clinton G. Martin Park in New Hyde Park. Among those in attendance were U. S. Senator Charles Schumer, US Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy, Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi and a host of other elected and appointed officials. In addition to Mr. Kaiman, the oath of office was administered to Rocco Iannarelli as receiver of taxes, Michelle Schimmel, town clerk, and councilmen Robert Troiano Jr., Thomas Dwyer, Angelo Ferrara, Wayne Wink Jr., Anthony D'Urso and Fred Pollack.
