I am writing to express my gratitude to the Town of North Hempstead community for electing me to serve as your next Town Supervisor. As I transition to my new role, which I will assume January 1st, please know that I am grateful for your support, and I am honored to serve this wonderful community. I would like to commend my opponent Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio, for running a formidable campaign. I look forward to working with her on the Town Board.
As we approach the start of the new year, I want to focus on building: building bridges, building our community and, yes, fixing the building department. I am eager to get to work representing the people of North Hempstead. Thanks to your support, I will be able to lead the Town in an inclusive way, making sure that everyone has a seat at the table and that everyone who has something to say is heard. I am committed to representing you and continuing and building upon the progress begun by my predecessor, Supervisor Kaiman.
Finally, please know that my door is always open. I am proud of my reputation as a person who listens and responds and works hard for my constituents. As a Nassau County Legislator, I work diligently and in a bipartisan fashion to serve the people I represent. As Town Supervisor I will continue to serve the community responsively with energy and enthusiasm.
I look forward to working with you and continuing our partnership in the coming years. Thank you again for allowing me the privilege of representing you as Supervisor of the Town of North Hempstead.
Nassau County Legislator, 10th L.D.
Supervisor-Elect, Town of North Hempstead

Negotiations are currently underway between the Village of Farmingdale and members of the local CSEA labor union. After a closed door executive session meeting, on Jan. 6, village trustees met with members of the labor counsel to iron out terms of a new contract proposal, which they said will hopefully meet the fancy of union leaders.
“We have sent our proposals out there,” said Farmingdale Mayor Ralph Ekstrand, “we are just waiting for the CSEA membership to approve it.”

The Indians' regular season came to a close recently, but not before the boys locked up several more post-season honors to complete a highly successful campaign that brought an undefeated season as well as Division and Conference Championships. Manhasset headed into the post-season with high aspirations and battled it out with rival Wantagh High School for two weekends in a row—at both the Class Country Championships and the State Qualification race—coming up just short on both occasions, but achieving many milestones along the way.
