Republican Felix Procacci, of Franklin Square, is running on the Democratic ticket this election season, challenging Republican incumbent, Kate Murray, for the position of supervisor for the Town of Hempstead. Procacci, a computer programmer, is basing his campaign on increasing town government transparency.
“For me this campaign is not political; it is a continuation of my efforts to reform town government, an effort that began almost three years ago when I attended my first town board meeting,” said the challenger. “Sixty-two consecutive meetings later, and with a greater understanding of town government, my goal remains the same: the reform of town government.”
Procacci has lived in Franklin Square for 15 years. He is a graduate of the City College School of Engineering, and has worked as an electrical engineer and computer programmer for the past 29 years.
Procacci believes that if the Town of Hempstead had a transparent government, either the current administration would not still be serving, or things would be running differently.
