Councilman Tom Dwyer Steps Down to Take New Post

North Hempstead, NY– North Hempstead Town Councilman Tom Dwyer announced on November 15th that he is resigning as Councilman of the 2nd Council District, a position he has held since 2002.

Dwyer, whose district encompasses Albertson, East Hills, East Williston, Glenwood Landing, Greenvale, Herricks, Manhasset Hills, Roslyn Harbor, Roslyn Heights and Searingtown, will take on a new role in the private sector.

The Town Board will vote at an upcoming Board meeting on Dwyer’s replacement. The appointed individual will serve through the end of 2014 when a special election will be held to serve the remainder of Dwyer’s term. Another election will be held in November 2015 for a full four-year term.

“It is with a heavy heart that I leave my position as Councilman in the Town of North Hempstead,” Dwyer said. “I am proud of the great work we have done in my tenure to create and promote great Town services and programs that have made North Hempstead one of the best places to live in the country. I wish the best of luck to my successor and I know that my Council District will continue to be represented with great integrity and attentiveness to the residents. I thank all my constituents for their continued support over the years.”

Town Supervisor John Riordan, expressing appreciation for Dwyer’s work on the Town Board, said, “I commend Councilman Dwyer for his 11 years of meritorious service to the Town of North Hempstead. Tom has always been an advocate for issues important to his constituents and a leader who brought people to the table in order to solve problems. In addition to countless efforts on a myriad of issues, Tom has been a steward of the environment spearheading many of the green initiatives existing in the Town today. I thank him for all he has done for the residents of the Town of North Hempstead and wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
