SAMPLE ELECTION BALLOT COURTESY OF


ELECTION 2020

Dave McDonough Incumbent

Party: Republican, Conservative, Independent Age: 83 Professional experience: New York state assemblyman Education: Bachelor of Arts, Columbia University On the issues: David McDonough said he supports the Small Business Emergency Recovery Act, which would immediately direct the state’s $890 million settlement reserve fund to small businesses, move tax deadlines for remittance and repurpose available tax credits to help existing businesses. Since March, he said he has advocated for small businesses

and was among the first to call for regional reopenings, along with being a part of “Jump Start New York” to aid residents and businesses and provide economic recovery. “We need to stop the high out-migration that is hurting our economy and diminishing the tax base,” McDonough said. “We also need to provide incentives to encourage students to stay in New York after graduation. I co-sponsored legislation called the New York State Diplomas to Home Owner-

ship Program, which encourages home ownership for young professionals by providing financial assistance with student loan debt equal to 10 percent of the purchase price of a property, up to $15,000.” To assist older adults, he said, he has co-sponsored legislation to establish a phased-in real property tax exemption for persons 80 or older. He also co-sponsored legislation to establish a 25 percent increase on the real property tax-relief credit for 2020 and generate a permanent credit for Basic and Enhanced STAR recipients.

Kevin Gorman Challenger

Party: Democratic Age: 69 Professional experience: Purchasing supervisor Education: Bachelor of Science, Fordham University On the issues: To help the economy recover and provide funding for the people who need it most, Kevin Gorman said he would reform the tax rates to give a “boost to struggling small businesses and individuals affected by the coronavirus. If the very well-off contribute their fair share of tax revenue, we can give relief to middle-class working families, small businesses and individuals who so desperately need the state government to step up in

this time of need.” Home ownership is a crucial component of building and maintaining the middle class, he said, so affordable home loans and increased inventory of affordable housing for both renters and buyers is needed. Property tax relief for seniors and middle-class homeowners is also important, he said. “When I am elected to the New York state assembly, I will work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to help Long Islanders obtain affordable

living spaces and ease the heavy burden of housing costs in our region,” he said. “My first duty as an assemblyman is to represent and advocate for my constituents,” he continued. “The things that matter to them, such as the toxic Bethpage plume, are my first priority. It is vital that we clean it up as quickly as possible for our environment and hold those who caused the contamination accountable. Additionally, we need tax reform to help those affected by the pandemic and to properly fund our schools.”

Includes North Merrick, Merrick, North Bellmore, Bellmore, North Wantagh, Wantagh and parts of Roosevelt and Seaford.

ASSEMBLY DISTRICT 17 John Mikulin Incumbent

Parties: Republican, Conservative, Independence Age: 32 Professional experience: New York State assemblyman Education: Bachelor’s Degree, St. John’s University; law degree, Touro Law Center On the issues: John Mikulin said his first priority is to ensure everyone is safe from contracting the coronavirus. He helped obtain personal protective equipment for local businesses and institutions, and plans to continue to ensure that businesses and first responders have needed PPE. Mikulin has also advocated for restaurants and bowling alleys to be reopened

with precautionary restrictions. He recognizes that Long Island is an expensive place to live, making it difficult for young people and older adults to stay here. Mikulin said he believes thought should be given to expanding senior and millennial housing, citing the redevelopment at the Nassau Coliseum as an opportunity for innovative housing. This year, Mikulin has been critical of the bail reform legislation passed in 2019, saying that it has

imperiled public safety more than any other legislation in memory. While reforms were needed, according to Mikulin, what was enacted went beyond what was necessary. He would work to repeal the law and replace it, if reelected, he said. Mikulin favors lowering taxes, saying that raising taxes now could force many to leave New York and expedite the exodus that has been occurring over the last 15 years. In addition, he wants to focus on Long Island’s education system, recognizing the burden that the pandemic has placed on districts. Schools must be given support not only to expand technology, he said he believes, but also be provided with the tools needed to maintain physical facilities amid the pandemic so all students can return to the classroom.

2020 Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3 Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
