(Editor’s Note: Following the last date to file a petition to run for office, the Great Neck Record contacts each village clerk/treasurer for the candidates list. We ask the village to contact each candidate for a photograph, short biography and statement of purpose in running for office. Not all villages or candidates comply. In the coming weeks, we will publish all such election materials.)
