Endorsement: Anthony D'Esposito for US Congress (NY4)
The open seat in the 4th district (Town of Hempstead) pits Republican Hempstead Town Councilman Anthony D'Esposito against Democratic former one-term Town Supervisor Laura Gillen.
D'Esposito was elected to the Town Council in 2016 - and his tenure is noted for seriousness, fiscal responsibility and fighting crime. D'Esposito is a former NYPD Detective, and he is a fierce critic of the "no-bail" and high crime policies of the New York Democrats.
Gillen won a two-year term as Hempstead Supervisor - a term marked by lots of silly press conferences and an incredible inability to work with others. Even the other Democrats on the Town Board threw-up their hands in frustration - and couldn't work with her. After two years the voters had enough - and voted her out.
