SAMPLE ELECTION BALLOT COURTESY OF


ELECTION 2020

Kathleen Rice Incumbent

Party: Democrat Age: 55 Professional experience: Congresswoman for six years, former district attorney of Nassau County, Education: Undergraduate degree, The Catholic University of America, 1987; law degree, Touro Law Center, 1991 On the issues: Kathleen Rice said that coronavirus recovery for businesses, schools, hospitals, nursing homes and residents is among her top priorities. She is seeking to focus on creating new jobs to replace those that were lost, to help small and midsized businesses recover and provide continued finan-

cial relief to the families who have been most affected by the pandemic. Rice said she is committed to passing a bipartisan relief bill in Congress and having it signed by President Trump to support residents, front-line workers and small businesses that have been impacted. Another goal she has is to work to ensure more funding for schools, which have also been hit hard during the coronavirus pandemic, so that they can remain open and operate safely. Rice also said she is also

passionate about a need to reform police practices in her district and across the country to end racial injustice. She is a vocal supporter of the George Floyd Justice in Police Act, which would enact several immediate and potentially life-saving measures to reform police practices countrywide. Additionally, she said, she wants to address systemic inequities that exist in education, housing, health care and employment, and have been exacerbated during the pandemic. Other issues that Rice said she is passionate about include a call for immigration reform and stronger gun control legislation, action to combat the climate crisis and repealing the cap on the federal deduction for state and local taxes, which she called “harmful.”

Douglas Tuman Challenger

Party: Republican Age: 39 Professional experience: Commissioner of engineering for the Town of Hempstead (professional engineer and patent attorney) Education: Stevens Institute of Technology and Hofstra University Maurice Deane School of Law On the issues: Douglas Tuman said one of his main objectives would be to immediately deliver financial relief to small businesses, families and citizens in the form of standalone stimulus payments to help with Covid-19 recovery. He said his approach would improve the economy, which

would in turn increase patronage at local small businesses. He would also push the government to provide personal protective equipment to businesses to promote safety and expedite economic recovery, and has developed a six-part tax reform plan to help. He said he would also push for the government’s role in education to be one of support, not control. To address issues with race within the district, Tuman said, he would listen to and act on behalf of com-

munities of color. He said to provide safety and protection for all, officials must work to support and improve relationships between police officers and communities of color through joint community-law enforcement events and training. To improve schools and local infrastructure, he added, they must redirect federal funding to local schools, roads and public transportation. His other major goals include delivering Covid-19 relief to small businesses and residents on Long Island; supporting law enforcement; making Long Island more affordable through his six-part tax reform plan and promoting small business growth; reforming higher education; and investing in and improving local infrastructure.

District takes in a swath of south-central Nassau County, from Hempstead and Westbury to the North to Long Beach to the south, and Valley Stream to the west and Wantagh to the east.

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.
