Madeline’s extensive career locking up violent criminals and putting drug dealers behind bars makes her the best candidate for Nassau’s hard-working families. I am proud to give her my endorsement.”

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of my Congressman, Representative Steve Israel,” said Singas. “Over his distinguished career, Rep. Israel has always put the needs of his constituents first and I look forward to working with him to keep our Nassau families safe.”
