Conservation League Endorses Wink

The New York League of Conservation Voters has endorsed Wayne Wink (D, I, WF) in the special election to fill the vacant seat in the county legislature. The other candidate is Louis Chisari (R, C). The vacancy is in District 11. All of Glenwood Landing and Roslyn Harbor and portions of Glen Head and Sea Cliff are in District 11.

The election will be held on Tuesday, March 27. Vote at your usual polling place. More information about the candidates and the special election can be found below in several previous postings.

To find out if your are in District 11 and where to vote, contact the Nassau County Board of Elections (571-2411)). The Board of Elections says it plans a mailing to households in District 11 notifying them about the election.

The election will decide which party holds the majority in the Nassau County Legislature, which is currently tied at 9 Republican seats and 9 Democratic seats.

For details about the NY League of Conservation Voter's endorsement of Mr. Wink, visit the league's website website.

Mr. Wink, who currently is a councilman on the North Hempstead Town Board, voted to deny the Glen Harbor application for a change of zone from industial use to multi-family residential use for the property on Shore Road in Glenwood Landing just south of the Glenwood Landing Power Station. The board ruled in favor of the applicant by a vote of 2 against, 5 in favor. At the time, Mr. Wink said he voted against the application because too many unanswered questions remained.
