It’s unanimous: all of North Hempstead’s incumbents seeking reelection on Nov. 3 defeated their opponents with more than 60 percent of the votes.
Democrat Judi Bosworth was reelected to another two-year term as Town of North Hempstead Supervisor, running the fifth-largest township in the United States, with 63.22 percent of the votes against Republican challenger Anthony Bulzomi, 20,122 to 9,587.
“I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve as Supervisor of the Town of North Hempstead for another two years,” the Supervisor said. “Fiscal responsibility, open and transparent government, environmental protection, and responsiveness to our residents and businesses will remain of paramount importance to me as I prepare to begin my second term. I am looking forward to working together with our dedicated town council as we continue to make the Town of North Hempstead one of the best places to live, raise a family and retire.”
Bosworth originally took office in 2014 as the 37th Supervisor of the Town of North Hempstead, following six years with the Nassau County Legislature as the representative for the 10th District and 16 years serving as trustee on the Great Neck School District Board of Education.
Bosworth’s initiatives include drawing businesses to downtown areas and revitalizing the town’s waterfront, offering Building Department programs aimed at convenience and customer service, advocating for the reopening of the 6th Precinct, enhancing programming at the Yes We Can Community Center and a dedication to infrastructure improvements through projects in the town’s 5-year capital plan.
With 65.84 percent of the votes, Anna M. Kaplan (D) was reelected as Town of North Hempstead 4th District Councilwoman for another four-year term against Mary Kay Barket, 3,101 to 1,608.
“I am humbled by the support and the turnout of the residents. Serving the residents of the 4th Council District is an honor and a responsibility that I do not take lightly,” said Councilwoman Kaplan. “I represent the taxpayers and as their public servant, it’s my job to listen to their needs, address their concerns and give them the quality of life they deserve here in North Hempstead. I am genuinely looking forward to continuing to work with Supervisor Judi Bosworth and my colleagues on the board.”
Councilwoman Kaplan was first elected in November 2011. She represents the 4th District of the Town of North Hempstead which includes the villages of Roslyn, Roslyn Estates, Munsey Park, North Hills, Great Neck, Great Neck Gardens, Kensington, Kings Point, Thomaston and the unincorporated areas of Manhasset and Great Neck, including Allenwood.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve the town’s residents with excellent customer service, prompt answers to their questions and information on lowering their tax payments,” said Berman. “My office strives to make the tax-payment process as convenient as possible. As I prepare to begin my second full term, I look forward to working together with Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the town’s council members, as we continue to make the Town of North Hempstead one of the best places to live.”
