Hempstead Town Council members sworn in for new term in office

Officials say they aim to work with newly-elected Democratic supervisor for their constituents’ benefit


HEMPSTEAD — Three Town of Hempstead Council members took their oaths Tuesday before other local leaders at a ceremony in town hall. Councilman Anthony D'Esposito, Senior Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby, and Councilman Dennis Dunne were all re-elected to continue working for the Town of Hempstead.

The swearing in of the town council members comes after the new Supervisor Laura Gillen took office on Monday. Gillen is the first Democratic town supervisor in Hempstead for more than 100 years. And even though some of the town council members are Republican, they promise to work together side by side.

"I work across the aisles. And it's more important with me and for them to make sure that we take care of our constituents within the Town of Hempstead, and we do that very well," Councilwoman Goosby said.

"Willing to work with anyone for the best interest and the best outcome of the Town of Hempstead," Councilman D'Esposito said.

The town council members say in 2018 they'll work to be fiscally responsible for the taxpayers.
