Republican Town Councilman Christopher Carini was re-elected tor a second term. Carini, who’s from Seaford, has long advocated focusing on quality-of-life issues that he says plague Hempstead communities.
Carini was first elected to the Town Board in 2019. Republicans had originally nominated Erin King Sweeney, but she dropped out late in the race, and Carini was added to the ballot just six weeks before the election.
He said he kept his promises — keeping taxes low and making improvements throughout the 5th Councilmanic District, which stretches from Seaford to Point Lookout.
Carini beat his Democratic challenger, Jasmine Peña, by 5,491 votes.
“Thank you to everyone in this room,” Carini said on Tuesday night. “Tomorrow we start our work, and continue our fight for safe and affordable neighborhoods.”
