STATEMENT FROM NORTH HEMPSTEAD SUPERVISOR JUDI BOSWORTH
This past year has been a profoundly challenging time for our Town residents and Town government. In fact, it might be the most demanding time in our Town's history. I have been so proud to serve as your Town Supervisor as we made the difficult decisions during this pandemic. We always put public health and safety first and will continue to do so.
The pandemic has been a time of deep reflection. One of the lessons that has been reinforced for me is the importance of family and how essential the time is that we spend with our loved ones. So often, I have thought about the many things I would like to do in the future, and I’ve come to the realization that the future is now. Therefore, I have made the decision that I will not be a candidate for re-election as Town Supervisor for the Town of North Hempstead.
As many in Town Hall know, I often say "Family First." Now is the time for me to take my own advice. When my term concludes, I look forward to spending more time with Jay, my children, and grandchildren. Change is healthy and now is the right time for me to conclude my tenure in office.
During my years on the Great Neck Board of Education, the Nassau County Legislature, and as Town Supervisor, my mission has always been public service. While I have been proud to participate in the political process, public service has always been my priority. It has been an honor to serve as your Town Supervisor, and I have every confidence our Town elected officials and workforce will maintain the standards of transparency, accountability, and fiscal oversight that have been my guiding principles in government.
Public service is not defined by the office you hold. It is defined by the love you have for your community and neighbors, and by being there for them. By that standard, I will always be engaged in public service.
