Don't look for Jon Kaiman's name on the ballot for Nassau county executive this fall.
"He will not be seeking the Democratic nomination for County Executive,"
Kaiman's spokesman Justin Meyers said.
Back in February, Kaiman, now serving his fourth term as North Hempstead supervisor, was considering a run for county executive, with local Democrats looking to unseat Republican County Executive Edward Mangano.
Having formed a campaign committee to explore options, Kaiman told Patch in February that seeking nomination is an “evolving process” and that he would “see what happens over the next few days."
But Kaiman declined Democratic Chairman’s Jay Jacob's recent invitation to participate in the Nassau County Democratic executive committee screening of county executive candidates, Meyers told Patch Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Democrats Tom Suozzi, the former county executive, and Andrew Haber, a Roslyn school board member, remain in the race.
