Senior Councilman “honored and truly touched” by unanimous nomination vote;
Pledges to go all-out highlighting his successes
When the Town of Hempstead Republican Committee gathered on Wednesday, May 22, Senior Councilman Anthony J. Santino was unanimously re-nominated for his position on the Town Board representing District 4.
“I’m honored and truly touched to receive the Republican nomination for Town Board. I’ve worked hard during my time on the board to keep America’s largest township a great place to live, work and raise a family. Working with Supervisor Kate Murray, we’ve consistently held the line on town taxes while maintaining a Triple A credit rating from Wall Street,” said Councilman Santino.
With a high-powered wind turbine at the Department of Conservation and Waterways, the Town of Hempstead has blown past the 100,000-kilowatt hour mark, generating over 128,000 kilowatt hours in just 24 weeks. The wind turbine, erected in December 2011, currently provides power to Long Island’s only hydrogen fueling station.
This amazing accomplishment confirms Supervisor Kate Murray and Senior Councilman Anthony J. Santino’s vision that the answer to clean, renewable energy is truly “blowin’ in the wind.”
Sitting behind the wheel of a hydrogen fuel cell-powered town vehicle – the fuel created as the result of the wind turbine powering the town’s water-to-hydrogen conversion process – Murray drove through a “finish line” banner marking the passing of 125,000 kilowatt hours.
To assist senior citizens in filing their income tax returns, Hempstead Town’s Department of Senior Enrichment is seeking volunteers to help run the town’s free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. VITA is offered in partnership with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
“VITA is an invaluable service offered to senior citizens who require assistance in filing for annual income tax returns,” said Senior Councilman Anthony J. Santino.
Hempstead Town’s VITA Program helps senior citizens prepare their federal and state income tax returns and secure every penny of the refunds to which they are entitled.
With temperatures dropping and as a result of a bruising economy, the demand for warm coats for those in need this Winter is greater than ever.
In an effort to get as many children as possible the proper winter apparel, the Town of Hempstead has partnered with Kids Helping Kids by Kids Way, Inc., a local non-profit organization with various local social service groups that assist the needy.
“I’m delighted that the Town of Hempstead was able to facilitate an association between this wonderful organization and local groups that can distribute a vast quantity of warm apparel to those who truly need it”, stated Town Supervisor Kate Murray.
