Donald X. Clavin Jr. is running for Hempstead town receiver of taxes

Donald X. Clavin Jr.

Clavin said he has been "in every community of the town . . . where I show people how to lower their tax bills" by challenging their Nassau County assessment and filing for tax exemptions." He added that he has streamlined services, extended office hours and set up satellite locations, all without additional cost to taxpayers. "We are going to continue to build on that," he said.

Clavin, 47, of Garden City, a Republican, is also running on the Conservative, Independence and Reform lines. He was appointed to the job of Town of Hempstead receiver of taxes to fill out a term in 2001 and was elected later that year to a full term. He is now a four-time elected incumbent. Clavin grew up in Valley Stream and graduated from St. Agnes High School in Uniondale. He has a bachelor of arts degree in history from Canisius College in Buffalo and a law degree from Hofstra Law School. He is married and has two children.
