On Tuesday, August 6, Friends of John DiMascio, candidate (R,C,I) for Nassau County Legislature, hosted an enthusiastic crowd of more than 100 supporters at the Swan Club. Attendees were of all political affiliations and from all across the 11th Legislative District, which includes the communities of Sands Point, Port Washington, Roslyn, Roslyn Harbor,
Greenvale, Glen Head, Glenwood Landing, Sea Cliff and Glen Cove. With flag lined walls, flag center pieces, and pleated flag fan draped entry tables, the patriotic themed event was most appropriate for John, a Vietnam veteran and a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), the American Legion, and the Vietnam Veterans of America. DiMascio, a highly respected and accomplished attorney and former court officer, is on the Board of Directors of the North Shore Sheltering Program, serves as a pro bono attorney for the
Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and is annually recognized as a “Top Legal Eagle” by Long Island Pulse Magazine, among many additional distinguished awards. DiMascio has already received the endorsements of the Fraternal Order of Court Officers of New York State and the Court Officers Benevolent Association of Nassau County.
After a rousing welcoming speech by John Canning of Sea Cliff and an enthusiastic introduction by Paul Meli of Glen Cove, John took the podium and delivered a heartfelt and inspiring presentation of his goals if he becomes the next County Legislator for the 11th L.D. DiMascio is running against incumbent Delia DeRiggi-Whitton. Integrity, ethics, transparency, honest leadership, respectful dialogue and intelligent decision-making are a few of the refreshing qualities we can all look forward to receiving when John DiMascio takes his seat on the Nassau County Legislature. DiMascio is also committed to no tax-increases, efficient government, and encouraging business and economic development here on Long Island.
DiMascio’s Glen Cove campaign headquarters will be located at 149 Glen Street, Glen Cove. A Grand Opening event is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 15 at 7 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
