Supervisor Bosworth Re-Elected For Second Term with 68% of vote
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth was re-elected on November 3 to another two-year term with 20,122 votes, or a 68% margin of victory over her opponent.
“I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve as Supervisor of the Town of North Hempstead for another two years,” the Supervisor said. “Fiscal responsibility, open and transparent government, environmental protection, and responsiveness to our residents and businesses will remain of paramount importance to me as I prepare to begin my second term. I am looking forward to working together with our dedicated Town Council as we continue to make the Town of North Hempstead one of the best places to live, raise a family and retire.”
Supervisor Bosworth first took office in 2014, as the 37th Supervisor of the Town North Hempstead, following six years with the Nassau County Legislature as the representative for the 10th District and 16 years serving as trustee on the Great Neck School District Board of Education.
In the coming months, Supervisor Bosworth will be focusing on several initiatives, one of them being drawing businesses to downtown areas.
“We will be working with a cross-section of groups, including chambers of commerce, business owners and prospective owners, realtors and members of the community to address the empty stores on the main streets of our community,” the Supervisor said.
One of the Supervisor’s initiatives includes a seminar hosted by the Town’s Business & Tourism Development Corporation (BTDC) and the Building Department on “What to Know before Opening or Expanding a Business.” The BTDC is also offering a matching grant beautification program to revitalize and beautify the Town’s commercial or mixed use “downtown” areas.
Other efforts that will be continued include the visioning for revitalizing the Town’s waterfront, offering Building Department programs aimed at convenience and customer service, advocating for the re-opening of the 6th precinct, enhancing programming at the Yes We Can Community Center in New Cassel, and a dedication to infrastructure improvements through projects in the Town’s 5-year Capital Plan.
Supervisor Bosworth will begin her second full-term as Supervisor on January 1, 2016.
