Candidates for Nassau Co. Exec.

With incumbent Ed Mangano having problems, Democrats are hoping to pick-up the Nassau County Executive’s seat this fall.

So far, three names have surfaced:

  1. Nassau Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs is supporting Legislator Laura Curran (D-Baldwin).  She supports a New Yorkers Against Gun Violence mandatory firearms storage proposal for the county.
  2. Assemblyman Charles Lavine has the backing of the Assembly Democrat Leadership.  Lavine has a long record of supporting antigun legislation in Albany.
  3. County Comptroller George Maragos. Does not have a record on the issue that I’m aware of.

Assuming Mangano does not run for another term, possible Republican candidates include:

  1. Former State Senator Jack Martins. Voted for the SAFE Act and ran for Congress last year as the gun control candidate.
  2. Hempstead Town Councilman Bruce Blakeman. A perpetual candidate who has run several times for higher office and lost each time.
  3. Hempstead Tax Receiver Donald Clavi. I have nothing on him.

A largely uninspiring bunch of people.
