Majority Seat in Nassau County Legislature Up for Grabs in Special Election March 27

Voters in Glenwood Landing, portions of Glen Head and Sea Cliff, and the rest of Nassau County Legislative District 11 hold the key to which party takes the majority in the county legislature (see previous postings, including VOTE March 27 in Special Election to Select Nassau County Legislator Representing Glenwood Landing and Western Glen Head, March 15; Musical Chairs Upstate Affect Glenwood Landing & Glen Head, February 18).

The number of Republican and Democratic seats in the Nassau County Legislature is currently tied at nine since Craig Johnson (D), who represented District 11, was elected to the NYS Senate in a special election earlier this winter.

Wayne Wink of Roslyn is the Democratic candidate. Louis Chisari of Garden City Park is the Republican candidate. Mr. Wink also is endorsed by the Working Family and Independent parties. Mr. Chisari also is endorsed by the Conservative Party. Both candidates are attorneys.
