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.

ASSEMBlY DiSTRicT 22 Michaelle Solages Incumbent

Party: Democrat Age: 35 Professional experience: State Assembly member Education: Bachelor of Science, Hofstra University On the issues: Michaelle Solages is seeking her fifth term representing the 22nd Assembly District. During her eight years in office, Solages has focused on issues such as childcare, funding for programs like universal preschool on Long Island and legislation to achieve greater parity in health care within disadvantaged communities, where infant mortality rates are higher.

Past achievements include expanding Medicaid coverage to pay for access to donated breast milk for premature babies, or those whose mothers cannot produce their own, as well as legislation to provide lactation accommodations in public buildings. Her current efforts include establishing a universal pre-kindergarten program on Long Island through partnerships between local public school districts and non-profits. Additionally, Solages is seeking to pro-

vide greater access to healthy foods within disadvantaged communities as part of a systemic effort to address health disparities. Most recently, Solages submitted legislation to expand state paid family leave to include parents who are adapting to their children’s distance-learning curriculum during the coronavirus pandemic. Generally, Solages has centered her efforts around providing public services for working families and mothers.

Nicholas Zacchea Challenger

Party: Republican Age: Undisclosed Professional experience: Auditor for the U.S. Government Accountability Office and U.S. Department of Energy; auditing consultant for 24 government, non-governmental and corporate organizations, as well as a variety of other short-term consulting and advisory projects Education: Doctorate in economic science On the issues: Nicholas Zacchea is seeking to leverage his decades-long career as a government auditor and economic consultant. As an auditor in the U.S. Govern-

ment Accountability Office, his responsibilities included providing data-backed analyses to U.S. Congress members to inform their policy decisions. After, he worked as a consultant for a number of government and non-governmental organizations, providing input on economic issues ranging from corruption to public finance. With a doctorate in economic science, Zacchea said he promotes a data-driven approach to government. He looks to bring greater efficiency to state operations

through a close look at its finances to end fraud, waste and abuse through robust systems of accountability, transparency and oversight. While he is not opposed to public aid programs, he does believe assistance should not come in the form of direct financial support, which he says could dampen productivity. Instead, he favors mechanisms such as tax credits and low-interest, long-term loans to help provide or pay for services. On proposals for higherdensity housing, he believes they are the consequence of poor fiscal management, as local governments seek to expand their tax bases. He does, however, believe they can be appropriate to address housing disparities in high-tax areas such as Long Island.
