Eileen M. Napolitano

EILEEN M. NAPOLITANO

Democratic

BACKGROUND:

  • Napolitano, 59, of East Meadow, is a licensed optician at OPTYX in Wantagh. She ran for the Nassau County Legislature in 2015 and 2017 and lost. Napolitano is also running on the Common Sense Party line.
  • Napolitano is a trustee on the East Meadow school board. She is an appointed member of Nassau County Executive Laura Currans Heroin Task Force, and she serves on Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick J. Ryders Community Council, which seeks to identify and reduce hazardous situations in the community.
  • Napolitano is a graduate of Longwood High School in Middle Island. She graduated from the two-year ophthalmic dispensing program at New York City College of Technology in Brooklyn and has a New York State license in ophthalmic dispensing.

ISSUES:

  • Napolitano wants to expand resources for Nassau County veterans. Her plan includes offering more accessible medical care at the Nassau University Medical Center (NUMC) in East Meadow and expanding the Vet Mart at NUMC, which distributes clothing, food and other necessities to veterans.
  • Napolitano will propose "a senior protection program" to identify seniors potentially at risk for internet and telephone scams. She would seek to increase the availability of affordable senior housing in Nassau County "in an effort to keep our seniors on Long Island."
  • Napolitano would propose an initiative for a "climate-smart community" with affordable alternative energy solutions within Legislative District 13. She said that Nassau County should offer a rebate for solar panels.
