The North Hempstead supervisor may fill vacant executive post, according to published report.

North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman is on a short list of candidates for the chief executive position at the Long Island Power Authority, according to a Newsday report

Kaiman, a longtime resident of Great Neck, has served as supervisor in North Hempstead since January 1, 2004. He is a Democrat.

After I left the terrible meeting I realized something that no one mentioned. The Town wanted to allow four story buildings then they went to three stories. Being that we allready have the Stannards building which is four floors and the three story building which houses the Dolphin Book Store when did the regulations suddenly change? Look at Craigslist and you will see numerous listings for residential units in commercial type buildings up and down Main Street. Why propose what we already have? Something certanly sounds rotten in Denmark as the saying goes. Everyone can come to their own conclusions which we might never know if they are correct or not. Things which make you go HMMMMM

My last comment should read a little differently. What I was alluding to is that if wee have residential/commercial; buildings and buildings which meet or exceede the hieght which is now being proposed then why is there the need for new zoning laws? Beautification yes that is definitely needed but that is not rezoning. Do you rezone to plant treets, flowers, shrubs, fix sidewalks and curbs?

Because promises were made during the election. Rezoning on Main Street Port Washington and the Roslyn Country Club deal. All behind the scene promises.

Hey Mr. Kaiman still want to be on LIPA's short list. We already have enough problems with LIPA, we don't need to add you to that mix.
