SAMPLE ELECTION BALLOT COURTESY OF


ElECTIoN 2020

Kevin Thomas Incumbent

Party: Democrat Age: 36 Professional experience: State senator, former civil rights attorney Education: Bachelor of Science, St. John’s University; law degree, Western Michigan University Cooley Law School On the issues: From the start of the coronavirus pandemic, KevThomas said he has worked to ensure health-care and essential workers and senior living facilities had as much personal protective equipment as possible. He worked with state and private groups to set up as many testing sites within his district as possible. He secured funds

and resources for several food and PPE distributions throughout the district. And his staff, he said, helped constituents and small businesses with issues ranging from unemployment and mortgage relief to grant applications. The lack of affordable housing and skyrocketing costs are driving out seniors who have lived on Long Island for years and preventing young people from moving in and starting their families here, Thomas said. In his first term, he voted to

permanantly cap the property-tax levy cap at 2 percent and continue middle-class tax cuts. He voted against tax hikes over 40 times, while delivering Nassau “its fair share of state resources,” he said, noting, “I believe in smart affordable transitbased housing development, and I secured $225,000 for a housing study for the Town of Hempstead.” Thomas also said he helped secure “record school aid for Nassau County,” and over $500 million to clean up the Grumman-U.S. Navy underground toxic plume, which is spreading from Bethpage to Wantagh. Saving Nassau University Medical Center is also a top priority for his next term. “I will continue to fight to protect our taxpayers, bring the school and infrastructure funding our district deserves,” he said.

Dennis Dunne Sr. Challenger

Party: Republican Age: 70 Professional experience: Hempstead Town councilman, formerly a Nassau County legislator On the issues: Dennis Dunne said he helped provide coronavirus relief in his role as a Town of Hempstead councilman. “In fact,” he said, “I worked with Supervisor Don Clavin in developing the township’s Covid-19 response.” Among the important measures that the town implemented were zoning provisions and “express building permits” for outdoor restaurant dining. At the state level, he said, “our representatives

need to advocate aggressively for more federal funds and allocate state resources directly to our local communities and our region’s businesses.” Housing affordability has been a serious issue in all of the suburbs that surround New York City, Dunne said, noting that Hempstead Town is the first town on Long Island to create an affordable component in its building zone ordinance. “I am an advocate of requiring all multi-family residential developments to have a set

aside for next generation or workforce homes,” he added. “I have also supported the development of transit-oriented housing in our township. Finally, I would like to see New York state incentivize affordable set-asides in the development of multifamily developments in our region.” His major priorities in the State Senate would include community safety, as well as controlling taxes and spending. He noted that his opponent supported the bail reform law, which, he said, “has dumped thousands of criminals back onto our streets.” “Also, he said, “New York state has fallen prey to fiscal mismanagement and gluttonous spending. Budget transparency and openness are lacking in the state’s budget process.”

Includes Garden City, Hempstead, Lakeview, Uniondale, East Meadow, Salisbury, Levittown, Bethpage, Old Bethpage, Farmingdale, North Massapequa, North Wantagh and part of Massapequa.

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.
