Four villages in the Roslyn area will see elections on March 18, with only one village having contested races.

Village of Roslyn Deputy Mayor Marshall Bernstein and Trustee Craig Westergard are unopposed for their seats. Voting will take place at Roslyn Village Hall at 1200 Old Northern Blvd. on March 18 at 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Two trustees from Roslyn Estates, Brian Feingold and Stephen Fox, will also be running  unopposed. Voting will take place at Village Hall, 25 The Tulips in Roslyn, on March 18 from 12:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

East Hills Trustees Clara Pomerantz and Emanuel Zuckerman, running for re-election under the Unity Party banner. Voting for those races will take place at Village Hall, 209 Harbor Hill Road in East Hills, between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. on March 18.

In Flower Hill, the mayor’s seat and three spots on the Board of Trustees are contested for the first time in several years.

Deputy Mayor Brian Herrington is running for mayor under the Flower Hill Party banner, with incumbent Trustees Randall Rosenbaum and Gary Lewandowski on his slate. Current Mayor Robert McNamara will be running for a trustee position under the same party. Under the Liberty Party banner, three-year Trustee Kate Hirsch is running for mayor, with residents Diane Turner, Jay Silverman and Jeffrey Greilsheimer rounding out her slate.

The last month has seen Hirsch challenge the Flower Hill Party’s petition with the aim of having it thrown out, only for the Nassau County Board of Elections to rule in the party’s favor. Hirsch then filed an ethics complaint against Flower Hill’s chief election officer, Village Administrator Ronnie Shatzkamer, alleging that she was assisting the Flower Hill Party in their campaign. Both Shatzkamer and mayoral candidate Herrington have denied the allegations.

Flower Hill’s election will take place from 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on March 18, with residents invited to vote at Village Hall at 1 Bonnie Heights Road in Manhasset.
