Investigation alleges town clerk tried to bribe, obtain private photos of female employee

An investigation has revealed that Hempstead Town Clerk Mark Bonilla allegedly tried to obtain private images of a Hempstead worker, according to law enforcement officials. The town attorney’s office conducted its own review of complaints made by employees and reported results of their findings to Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice’s office.

According to a criminal complaint filed by DA investigator William Walsh, Bonilla on Aug. 19 attempted to secure intimate photos of a female employee who recently filed a sexual harassment claim. The document obtained by Anton Community Newspapers suggests the town clerk attempted to force town employee Alex Desidoro, 21, to give him photos of the woman because Desidoro had an intimate relationship with her.

Approximately 1,500 participants were in attendance; many of them cast white carnations into a reflecting pool located at the base of a 30-foot steel remnant from the fallen towers. Attendants included families of the victims, clergy members, firefighters, police, rescue workers and the common citizen.

Novel Examines One Man’s Life After War

Levittown takes center stage in this tribute to American veterans

In an uncanny parallel of one man’s life after returning home from World War II and the state of a nation in the latter half of a century, William Panzarella brings Levittown to life in his fourth novel, American Horse. The characters are genuine with a certain familiarity, especially to Levittown.

“I always wanted to write a ground-level view of the ‘Greatest Generation’, but did not want to just write a history book. In American Horse, I am able to take the reader on a personal journey through the ’40s to early ’80s, as seen through the eyes of the main character, Frank Keller.”
