Joseph Saladino of Massapequa is the Republican candidate in the upcoming election for the 12th Assembly District. The seat was vacated by Steve Labriola earlier this year, who was elected Oyster Bay Town Clerk. The 12th AD includes the communities (or parts of) Farmingdale, the Massapequas, Plainedge, Island Trees, North Wantagh and Seaford.
Hempstead Town Councilman Gary Hudes recently attended the Bagel Bowl Fundraiser, which was sponsored by the East Meadow Hadassah-Simcha Group. The Bagel Bowl Fund Raiser was held at the East Meadow Bowling Alley and net proceeds will benefit Hadassah's "Check it Out" program.
