Siegel, 57, of Rockville Centre, is running on the Democratic and Working Families lines. Siegel, an attorney with the Legal Aid Society, is a first-time candidate.
- She contends that parts of the district, which stretches to Five Towns, have been underserved for many years and need adequate representation in the community.
- Siegel supports County Executive Laura Curran's countywide reassessment plan, Nassau's first in nearly a decade. She argues that Republican lawmakers ignored the assessment problem for nearly a decade under former County Executive Edward Mangano and are now delaying and obstructing Curran's proposed changes.
- Siegel said she supports efforts by both Curran and Hempstead Town Supervisor Laura Gillen to root out corruption and cronyism in local contracts, hiring and government operations.
