SAMPLE ELECTION BALLOT COURTESY OF


ElEcTioN 2020

Todd Kaminsky Incumbent

Party: Democrat Age: 42 Professional experience: New York state senator Education: Bachelor’s degree, University of Michigan; law degree, New York Law School On the issues: Todd Kaminsky is chairman of the Senate Environmental Conservation Committee. He said his biggest accomplishment this term was passing the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, a law that he authored, and that he said is the nation’s strongest stateled effort to address the climate crisis, protect against extreme weather and create new green jobs. He also

helped secure benefits for 9/11 responders and wrote legislation providing funds for Long Island Rail Road infrastructure and capping property taxes. Kaminsky said he supports stronger measures to protect the barrier beach and is looking for ways to strengthen the current legislation. He was a co-sponsor of the bail reform bill, but believes changes in the legislation may be necessary to provide judges with more leverage over cases. He supported the Super Block proj-

ect in Long Beach and favors further economic development in the city. He has fought against state tax increases. Additionally, Kaminsky said he wants to ensure that next year’s state budget contains funds to support adult homes in Nassau County. Kaminsky has been an advocate for pension reform, working to strengthen antibribery laws and working to increase oversight of local government contracts. He has been an advocate for LIRR commuters and a supporter of Industrial Development Agencies, which foster economic development on Long Island. The IDA recently backed the Super Block in Long Beach.

Victoria Johnson Challenger

Party: Republican Age: 60 Professional experience: Took leave as chief of staff and office assistant to Assembly representatives on Long Island Education: Bachelor’s degree, State University of New York at Potsdam On the issues: Victoria Johnson is a strong supporter of police and is highly critical of the bail reform law. She said she believes judges should have more jurisdiction over sentencing, and over who should and should not be eligible for bail. Johnson acknowledged

that support for police and opposition to the bail reform law are the main thrusts of her campaign. She also said she believes more environmental support is needed for Long Beach’s North Park section and raised questions about the impact that the Super Block project might have on the local infrastructure, including sewer and water. Johnson was the daughter of a retired NYPD patrol officer and developed a deep sense of the importance of law enforcement,

she said. She decided early in life that the best place to raise her two children was Long Island. Over the years, she has maintained a steady career as chief of staff to Republican legislators on Long Island. She focused on constituent outreach and support in her state legislative district. Johnson said her opponent is focused on the needs of New York City progressive politicians, who do not have the interests of Long Islanders at heart. Johnson particularly opposed Kaminsky’s sponsorship of the bail reform bill, which she said allows “dangerous criminals to roam our streets without consequence.” If elected, Johnson said she would work to overturn the legislation.

Includes E. Atlantic Beach, Long Beach, Point Lookout, Island Park, Oceanside, Five Towns, Valley Stream, N. Valley Stream, Rockville Centre, and parts of Elmont, Franklin Square and Baldwin.

ElEcTioN 2020

SENATE DiSTRicT 8 John Brooks Party: Democratic Party/ Working Families/Independent Age: 70 Professional experience: State senator since 2017 Education: Bachelor’s degree, New York Institute of Technology; Associate’s degree, SUNY Farmingdale On the issues: As a former vice president of the Seaford Board of Education, John Brooks said he has a “keen interest in the well-being of school districts and investment in the youth of his district.” Currently, Brooks is working on securing state aid for the schools to meet the technological needs to support dis-

tance learning. His focus is for all school districts to have equal footing so families can have adequate access to education, including after the coronavirus pandemic. Brooks has also been a proponent of reforming Long Island’s property taxes based on current marketassessed home values. He argues that, as Nassau County already has one of the highest median annual property taxes in the country, there must be a fairer method of assessing taxes. He

has also proposed legislation to cap the percentage of district property taxes used to fund school district expenses at 50 percent, as opposed to the 65 to 75 percent that the estimated average is at around his district. He has supported the idea that small businesses should have a multi-year window to borrow money at lower interest rates because of the financial strain that the coronavirus pandemic has put on them. He opposes the federal cap on the income-tax deduction for state and local taxes paid. And Brooks is developing a proposal to provide a more affordable health-care plan.
