Lavine Ousts Sidikman From 13 A.D.
The crowd grew steadily at the Polish Hall in Glen Cove after 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 14, as residents came to hear the results of the 13th A.D. primary race between longtime incumbent David Sidikman and City Councilman Chuck Lavine. The results, however, were slow in coming and more than one politico was seen wiping his brow with a handkerchief. But spirits were kept high, with Lavine's most vocal cheerleader, County Executive Thomas Suozzi calling out, "Let's hear it for Chuck Lavine!" every so often. The race was so close that at one point Suozzi announced that the results might not be in until close to midnight, but added a comment that clearly pleased the crowd. Stating that Sidikman had taken Plainview, as expected, and Lavine Glen Cove, as expected, the county executive added, "But we did better in Glen Cove than Sidikman did in Plainview."
