Nassau GOP Maintains Majority in County Legislature

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York It was a good night for incumbents in the Nassau County Legislature as Democrats and Republicans alike walked away from Tuesday’s elections unscathed.Victories by sitting legislators across the board means the 19-member body will essentially look the same come January as Republicans managed to hold on to their 12-7 majority led by Presiding Officer Norma Gonsalves (R-East Meadow).The results weren’t unexpected, but Republicans had hoped to steal at least one seat from the Democrats to give them a supermajority, which would’ve allowed the GOP to approve bonding without the Democrats’ approval.Only one seat is changing hands and that’s because Francis Becker (R-Lynbrook) is retiring at the end of the year. Republican C. William Gaylor of Lynbrook defeated his challenger James Paymar, a Democrat from Rockville Centre, to keep Becker’s seat in the hands of Republicans.Shortly after Democrat Madeline Singas claimed victory in the race for Nassau County District Attorney, Nassau Democratic Committee Chairman Jay Jacobs called all the legislative incumbents up to the stage to be recognized.Minority Leader Kevan Abrahams (D-Freeport) spent his brief time at the microphone congratulating Singas on her resounding victory over Republican Kate Murray.,Alure cube,Alure cubelast_img read more
