Nassau Democrats designate candidates slate


Nassau County Democrats will seek to expand their hold on county, town and city offices with a slate of candidates announced at their party convention Wednesday night.

Hundreds of supporters gathered at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City to designate candidates for elections this year in the Nassau Legislature, Hempstead Town and elsewhere throughout the county.

The key races are in the legislature, where Republicans hold a narrow majority, Nassau Democratic chairman Jay Jacobs said.

The party will also challenge Republicans' longtime hold on Oyster Bay Town government, with candidates such as Town Clerk James Altadonna Jr., a Republican who will run for supervisor on the Democratic line.
