The Lakeville Estates Civic Association will be hosting a meet-and-greet this month with candidates running for supervisor in North Hempstead and Nassau County’s 10th Legislative District this November.
The meeting will be held at the Manhasset-Lakeville Co. 5 Firehouse at 21 78th Ave. in North New Hyde Park on Wednesday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m.
The candidates running for North Hempstead supervisor are incumbent Jennifer DeSena, a Republican, and Democrat Jon Kaiman of Great Neck. The candidates running for the county’s 10th Legislative District are incumbent Mazi Melesa Pilip, a Republican, and Democrat challenger Weihua Yan.
In 2021, DeSena, of Manhasset, was the first Republican nominee to win the town supervisor election in more than 30 years, succeeding Judi Bosworth, a Democrat, who did not seek re-election.
Kaiman, who has served as the Suffolk County deputy county executive since 2017, previously served as North Hempstead supervisor from 2004 through 2013.
Pilip, of Great Neck, defeated Democratic incumbent Ellen Birnbaum in 2021 to represent the county’s 10th Legislative District, which covers Manhasset, Manhasset Hills, North Hills, Searington, Herricks and the nine villages on the Great Neck peninsula.
Yan, also of Great Neck, serves as a partner at Rise Capital and as the chief technology officer at Wonder Inc., a food delivery platform that connects top chefs from renowned restaurants with customers at home.
