Dave Franklin of Port Washington is the Republican candidate for North Hempstead Town Council District 6, which includes the Port Washington peninsula, the Villages of Roslyn, Roslyn Estates, and Flower Hill.

Franklin is a former Commissioner of the Port Washington Police Department and remains active as member of a number of community service-based organizations including Kiwanis, Hibernians, Sons of Italy, and Knights of Columbus.

Franklin worked at MSG Networks for two years, and in 1983 accepted a job as an operations technician for HBO in Hauppauge.

Franklin spent 36 years at the company, moving up to a position as a radio frequency technician, then an operations supervisor, working nights to raise his sons during the day. In 2010 Franklin ran for a seat on the Port Washington Police District’s Board of Commissioners, where he served until 2019.

He graduated from Jersey Academy in Jersey City and spent some time at Saint Louis University in Missouri before attending Manhattan’s New School for Social Research, studying TV and radio.

  1. Lowering tax rates to mitigate rising costs of living
  2. Alleviating town board tensions
  3. Keeping the budget in check
