It’s round two for county District Attorney Madeline Singas.
Singas is running for re-election and her campaign has announced that it already has $962,702.
“Four years ago, I campaigned on a simple premise: that the Nassau DA should be an experienced prosecutor, not a politician,” Singas said in a news release. “We’ve taken on government corruption, MS-13, and the heroin epidemic, and crime in Nassau County has fallen to historic lows.”
The campaign raised $417,974 of its current funds in its most recent sixth-month filing period, which began in July and ended earlier this month.
Singas, a Democrat, has served as Nassau County district attorney since 2016.
She has worked in the county’s district attorney office since 2006, when she was appointed to lead the Special Victims Bureau. Singas became chief assistant district attorney in 2011 and then acting district attorney in 2015, replacing Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-Garden City).
In May, Gov. Andrew Cuomo appointed Singas as the special prosecutor for a case investigating allegations that former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman abused several women.
Singas grew up in Astoria, Queens, and lives in Manhasset, according to the Nassau County Democratic Committee.
