Redmond said North Hempstead’s elected officials have done a decent job at offering new services to residents, but they have been too slow to implement basic services to residents. He mentioned, for example, that the elevators at Michael J. Tully Park have been out of order for months. “If an elevator goes out in Manhattan, they fix it in a reasonable amount of time,” Redmond said. “[The town] has senior citizen events at Tully Park and to have a seniors group there and not have a working elevator doesn’t make sense to me.” If elected, Redmond said, he would modernize the technology used in the clerk’s office in a way that’s customer friendly and fast. “And if I can establish best practices in the clerk’s office, then we can spread that throughout the town,” Redmond said.
David P. Redmond is running on the Republican, Conservative and Reform party lines for clerk of the Town of North Hempstead. Redmond, 31, is an information technology consultant for small businesses on Long Island. The Mineola resident is a Chaminade High School graduate who has a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Catholic University. His campaign for clerk is his first attempt at elected office. Redmond, who is single, has been a board member for the Knights of Columbus 2502 for more than five years and a volunteer member of the Mineola Fire Department since 2003. Redmond is also a member of the Chaminade Alumni Association and Irish Americans in Government. He has been a coach and adviser for the Nassau County Police Athletic League.
