North Hempstead Hosts Community Forum with
Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo
Cuomo continues his Community Partnership Initiatives
New Hyde Park, NY—Supervisor Jon Kaiman welcomed Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo at a Community Forum to address the concerns of Nassau Country residents at Clinton G. Martin Park, April 29, 2008. The Community Forum is part of a major initiative designed to make the Attorney General’s office more responsive to the needs of Nassau County residents.
“I welcome Attorney General Cuomo back to North Hempstead and I applaud the Attorney General for spearheading this forum,” said Supervisor Kaiman at the forum. “Tonight’s event helps residents know and understand all the resources and safeguards available to them. I am happy to have taken part in this forum and I look forward to my continued work with the Attorney General and his staff on the critical issues facing the Town of North Hempstead.”
North Hempstead hosted the forum for the public at Clinton G. Martin Park. At the forum, the Attorney General and his staff met with local residents and held a series of breakout sessions on student loans, health care, and consumer fraud.
“Tonight’s event is a perfect example of how government can work to help people directly,” said Attorney General Cuomo. “Working together with community leaders, business owners, residents, and community groups, we can collectively better the lives of all Nassau County residents.”
North Hempstead Councilwoman Lee Seeman added, “Tonight’s community forum was an excellent opportunity for North Hempstead residents to meet with Attorney General Cuomo and his hardworking staff to discuss the issues that matter here in Nassau County.”
