Town Clerk Ragini Srivastava


Born in India, Ragini Srivastava came to the United States at the start of the new millennium in search of a better life.  As a new American, she was empowered by an innate sense of justice, her focused business acumen, and a desire to succeed.   

Town Clerk Srivastava’s commitment and volunteerism have long helped lift-up those around her.  Over the years, she has worked on behalf of domestic abuse survivors and has planned and participated in women’s advocacy groups and community events like Yoga and Mindfulness sessions. Town Clerk Srivastava’s strong work ethic, early training in accounting and her interest and understanding of standard business practices, resulted in her rapid rise and established her as a successful entrepreneur after opening multiple frozen yogurt cafes throughout Nassau County.  

For many years, Town Clerk Srivastava has continued to champion programs within the community and support initiatives to help open small businesses.  Well-respected as a leader in the South Asian community of the Town of North Hempstead, Town Clerk Srivastava was appointed to the Nassau County Comptroller’s Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise Council, where she helped to ensure more equitable opportunities for that sector.  In the wake of unprecedented instability and workforce shortages in the business community resulting from the global pandemic, Town Clerk Srivastava continues to support initiatives that assist in the economic recovery regionally.    

Ragini Srivastava is serving her first term as Town Clerk of North Hempstead, a time honored and historic function for the township since its founding in 1784.   She leads an office that has significant impact on our residents with the issuance of permits that affect their business, social, family, and their overall quality of life. After nearly two years of closures and limited access to the Clerk’s Office, Town Clerk Srivastava will begin her tenure with an effort to normalize the functions of her Office    

Committed to a responsive and technologically available office, Town Clerk Srivastava will strive to increase in-person contact with the public.  She serves as the Registrar of Vital Records.  Whether in celebrations of life or in supporting families who have lost loved ones, Town Clerk Srivastava understands the importance and timeliness of maintaining and issuing certifications.  

Town Clerk Srivastava is proud of the Town of North Hempstead and the unique characteristics of our villages, parks, beaches and downtowns and she will work with the office of tourism to assist the film industry in their access to government services.   

Town Clerk Ragini Srivastava welcomes the challenges of this new day and is grateful for the privilege to work on behalf of the residents of the Town of North Hempstead.  Town Clerk Srivastava lives in Manhasset Hills with her husband Ashish and son Shaorya and is focused on continuing her mission to maintain a strong, professional, service-oriented, and accessible department.
