Fifteen mayors from North Shore villages have endorsed incumbent Republican Supervisor Jennifer DeSena, her campaign announced Monday.

Barbara Donno of Plandome Manor, Bonnie Parente of East Williston, Pedram Bral of the Village of Great Neck, Paul Ehrbar of Williston Park, Michael Koblenz of East Hills, Marvin Natiss of North Hills, Kevin Fitzgerald of Floral Park, Sandy Quentzel of Roslyn Harbor, Paul Pereira of Mineola, Christopher Devane of New Hyde Park, Pater Cavallaro of Westbury, John Popeleski of Manorhaven, Randall Rosenbaum of Flower Hill, Lawrence Ceriello of Munsey Park and John Kurkjian of Plandome endorsed the supervisor, who is seeking her second two-year term.

The mayors, who represent over 115,000 North Hempstead residents, commended DeSena for including a 10% tax cut in her budget proposal, pushing back against Gov. Kathy Hochul’s housing plan and preserving the suburban way of life in the area.

“In these challenging times, leadership is not just about making promises, but about delivering results,” the mayors said in a joint statement. “Since being elected Town Supervisor, Jen has collaborated with local stakeholders, listened to the concerns of our residents and taken action to create positive change. We are confident that Jen DeSena is the leader North Hempstead needs to help our Town move forward.”

DeSena, of Manhasset, is running for re-election against Democrat Jon Kaiman, of Great Neck, who held the position from 2004 to 2013.

DeSena said in a statement she is humbled by the endorsements and that she looks forward to continue building relationships with community stakeholders.

“These mayors represent a diverse cross-section of our Town, and their collective endorsement speaks to my ability to bridge the divide, find common ground, and drive positive change across our great Town,” DeSena said. “I have cherished my time collaborating with these amazing local officials, and I look forward to continuing this important partnership in my second term, as we work to prioritize taxpayer relief, public safety, and protecting our suburban quality of life against attacks from Albany.”

  1. Only ONE of the nine village mayors in Great Neck endorsed her, the MAGA Mayor of Great Neck, Pedram Bral. No surprise there. And these 15 mayors don’t represent a cross-section of the town, they’re all Republican loyalists who will support whoever the party tells them to.
    We need to end the pain this town has endured under DeSena’s tenure and re-elect Jon Kaiman as Town Supervisor!
