The New York League of Conservation Voters has endorsed Democrat Jon Kaiman for North Hempstead Supervisor.
The organization promotes clean air and water, renewable energy and open space through political action, according to its website.
“I’m proud of my record on the environment,” Kaiman said in a statement. “As Supervisor, I’ll continue to protect our air, water, and soil, so generations to come can enjoy North Hempstead’s beauty.”
Kaiman, who served as supervisor from 2004 through 2013, is running against Republican incumbent Jennifer DeSena, who was first-elected in 2021.
The Great Neck resident currently serves as the Suffolk deputy county executive, where he has served since 2017 under Steve Ballone, who is term-limited.
Kaiman was also a candidate for New York’s 3rd Congressional District, where he finished second in the August Democratic primary behind Great Neck businessman Robert Zimmerman.
Before working as deputy executive, Kaiman served as the head of NIFA, a state oversight board that controls Nassau County’s finances.
He also served as an adviser to former Gov. Andrew Cuomo on the Superstorm Sandy recovery effort.
Prior to being elected supervisor, he served as a Nassau County District Court judge for three years.
