Supervisor Kaiman Calls State of the Town 'Excellent'
To an audience of about 130 constituents, community leaders and elected and appointed officials at the George Washington Manor, North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman delivered his third State of the Town address. The event, which is a luncheon hosted by the Port Washington-Manhasset League of Women Voters, was held on Feb. 9. In his address, the supervisor highlighted strong finances, renovated parks, and more accessible government as the town's major accomplishments this year. He also outlined three major initiatives for his second term: intermunicipal cooperation, community based planning, and the town's new 311/TOWNSTAT system.
