The association’s annual meeting Oct. 19 at the Port Washington Yacht Club boasted an agenda filled with speeches from civic leaders, including Council of Greater Manhasset Civic Associations President Richard Bentley, Manhasset Park District Commissioner David Paterson and Nassau County POP officer Steven Krukowski as well as the Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth in attendance.  

The leaders addressed the 80-plus members in the audience on issues affecting the quality of life in Manhasset and spoke about parking issues on Plandome Road and the need for more police presence and enforcement of traffic laws, underage drinking and drug use and how officials are addressing these problems.

Curran and Martins spoke about their qualifications and experience that would make them a good fit for the position.

The candidates also addressed the issues of fully restoring the sixth precinct, including returning detectives and administration to the facility as well as repairs to the physical condition of the building. Both candidates agreed that they were fully committed to this restoration.

The pair discussed how they would fix the current property tax assessment system and the potential changes to the water supply threatened by the re-opening of the Jamaica wells in Queens, what would be the impact on the water supply and what could be done if the plan goes through.
