On Tuesday, Nov. 5, Manhasset voters will choose representatation at the most local level—our town of Manhasset. Richard Bentley, president of the Greater Council of Manhasset Civic Associations, says, “Manhasset residents need to go out and vote because that is where the elected officials focus their attention.”
Here's an overview of the top two races.
At the top of the ticket, Town of North Hempstead Supervisor is a two-year stint with a salary of $133,690 per year.
Facing off for the post are Dina De Giorgio (R) and Judi Bosworth (D).
De Giorgio currently represents the Sixth Council District for the Town of North Hempstead, a position not up for re-election. The area comprises the villages of Flower Hill, Plandome, Plandome Heights, Plandome Manor and Port Washington, where De Giorgio resides with her husband, Joseph D’Alonzo, and two children.
Bosworth currently represents the 10th Legislative District, which encompasses Manhasset, North Hills, Great Neck, Herricks and parts of North New Hyde Park. She resides in Great Neck with her husband, Dr. Jay Bosworth. She has two adult children and two grandchildren.
Also up for a vote: Town Clerk, a four-year post with a salary of $95,000 per year. The race is being fought by two Democrats, Wayne Wink and Leslie Gross, with Gross running on the Republican ticket.
Gross has held the post of Town Clerk for the past six years. She resides in Manhasset with her husband, Howard, and has raised two children and four grandchildren.
