Andrew Bennett is running for Glen Cove city council member

Andrew Bennett

Bennett said city officials should do more outreach to residents, through more town halls and by seeking consensus on key issues such as the Garvies Point waterfront project. “I feel some of the current leadership in the city is doing a poor job of really representing the people of Glen Cove,” he said. The huge tax breaks for Garvies Point “really didn’t take into account what the citizens need and want,” said Bennett, who predicted that, despite city officials’ assertions, revenue from the project will not pay for increased services needed by new residents. The city also should require developers of market-rate projects to provide more units for middle- and lower-income residents, he said. Bennett called for a City Council liaison to city schools, to better understand the needs of young people.

Bennett, 42, is running on the Democratic, Working Families and Women’s Equality party lines. He has the Working Families and Women’s Equality lines. Bennett is a middle school principal. He has a bachelor’s degree in theater arts from Binghamton University and a master’s degree in education from St. John’s University. He spent part of his childhood in Glen Cove and has lived the past seven years in the city with his wife and three children.
