SENATE DISTRICT 7 Anna Kaplan Incumbent

Party: Democrat Age: 55 Professional experience: State senator and former trustee of the Great Neck library board, former member of the North Hempstead Board of Zoning Appeals, former Town of North Hempstead councilwoman Education: Undergraduate degree from Yeshiva University Stern College for Women; law degree from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law On the issues: Anna Kaplan said she would continue to fight for more aid from the federal government if she were reelected, calling it “unacceptable for the federal govern-

ment to be holding aid hostage, especially at a time when New Yorkers need it most.” Above all, she said, she would continue to fight for aid for local school districts, governments and hospitals, and would look for ways to increase the state’s revenue without raising taxes, like legalizing mobile sports betting. Additionally, Kaplan said, she has used her position as chairwoman of the Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business Committee to keep local

business owners informed about grants they could apply for in the aftermath of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s New York on Pause order, chaired the first virtual hearing in the State Legislature about the federal response on the economic impact of the coronavirus on New York’s small business community, and introduced legislation to reduce the tax rate on manufacturers and create a sales tax exemption for employees to purchase personal protective equipment. In terms of social issues, Kaplan said she believes it is important to develop trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve, and has supported a package of legislation to increase police departments’ transparency and accountability.

Dave Franklin Challenger

Party: Republican Age: 63 Professional experience: Police commissioner of the Port Washington Police Department from 2011-19, Technician and operations supervisor for HBO from 1983-2019 Education: Two years of college, one year of technical school On the issues: The State Legislature needs to look critically at spending and prioritize the state’s needs, according to Dave Franklin. He said the state was already $8 billion in debt before the coronavirus pandemic, and the state is losing an average of 270 New Yorkers a day to more

tax-friendly and businessfriendly states. As a result, he said, the tax burden is falling on middle-class residents, and to alleviate that, “we have to create more jobs and find different ways to generate revenue.” He also said the state government should let all of the small businesses reopen, considering the state’s infection rate has been below 1 percent for two months. Small-business owners, he said, will probably be more meticulous about keeping their places

clean and safe. Additionally, he said, restaurants in New York City should be allowed to provide indoor dining, and Governor Cuomo should relinquish his emergency powers. As the former Port Washington police commissioner, Franklin said he has experience with police protocols, and believes police should undergo ongoing training, including diversity and deescalation training. In 2019, he noted, Port Washington was named safest town in New York state. If he were to be elected to the State Senate, Franklin said he would order environmental and occupational studies to determine why the cancer rate in Elmont is so much higher than in neighboring communities, and would work to ensure the situation is properly investigated.

Includes Great Neck, Port Washington, Roslyn, Albertson, and parts of North New Hyde Park, Floral Park, Elmont, Franklin Square, Mineola, Old Westbury, Westbury and Hicksville.

ElECTIoN 2020

STATE SENATE 9 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.
