Last week, Sea Cliff Mayor Bruce Kennedy officially announced his candidacy for New York State’s 5th Senate District. The previous week, he became a Democrat after being ousted by the Nassau GOP as a Republican Assembly Candidate for implementing New York’s Marriage Equality Law and officiating same sex weddings.
“This is about being a public servant,” Kennedy said. “I took an oath to uphold the constitution and the laws of the State of New York.”

A total of 11 members of St. Dominic Track Team (grades 1-8) recently medaled at the Nassau-Suffolk CYO Championship Finals at Mitchel Field. In the finals, the athletes competed against the finalists from all three regions, representing more than 2,500 athletes from 23 other parishes.
In addition to the student athletes’ success, the track coaches were honored as well. St. Dominic CYO Track coaches Phil Schade (grades 1-3), Julie and Mike Keffer (grades 4-6) and Rich Cameron (grades 7-8) were selected by peer coaches in their region for the NSCYO Team Sportsmanship Award. The Saint Dominic CYO track program, in its second year, has already proven to be a force to be reckoned with and the young runners are among the best on Long Island.
