Donald X. Clavin, Jr. was elected Hempstead Town Supervisor in November of 2019 after serving 18 years as the town’s receiver of taxes for America’s largest township. Clavin was re-elected to a second term as supervisor in November of 2021.

As receiver, Clavin was the first in New York State to implement the first paperless e-Billing system in New York State, as well as Long Island’s first Autopay tax payment feature and drive-thru payment options.

As supervisor, Clavin followed through on a commitment to modernize the Building Department, working with his colleagues on the Town Board to bring the department online for the first time and streamline services by eliminating multiple trips to Town Hall and processing applications electronically.

Earning his Bachelor of Arts from Canisius College in Buffalo, Clavin received his doctorate of jurisprudence from Hofstra University School of Law. He gained experience working as a trial attorney who practiced in all New York courts as well as United States Federal District Courts.

Clavin then worked in the Office of the Nassau County Attorney as deputy county attorney.

There, he was responsible for defending various agencies of government ranging from the Department of General Services to the Nassau County Police Department.

After leaving the County Attorney’s office, Clavin entered the private sector and went on to represent various corporations including Home Depot and General Motors.

Clavin is a lifelong resident of the Town of Hempstead, where he and his wife, Nancy, are raising their two daughters and son. Clavin’s mother was the first woman to ever serve as Valley Stream Village trustee and his father served as district court judge.

Clavin is a member of the Kiwanis Club of Garden City, Irish Americans in Government, the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the Nassau County Bar Association and the Knights of Columbus. Clavin also served as a volunteer on the Valley Stream Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Committee in the Village of Valley Stream.
