Muscarella said he is running for re-election "to help people. As a councilman you're in people's lives to make the roads better, the parks better, the beaches, and to listen to their concerns and issues at a very local level." He said among his top accomplishments is helping improve and expand town parks, working to rein in the growth in adult-entertainment businesses and helping expand housing options for seniors and first-time home buyers. Muscarella said he can't comment in detail on the indictment of a top town official in connection with indicted restaurateur Harendra Singh because the cases are still in litigation.
Muscarella, 56, is running on the Republican, Independence, Conservative and Reform lines. He also is endorsed by Tax Revolt. He is seeking his sixth term. Muscarella received a bachelor's in marketing from St. John's University. He and his wife live in North Massapequa and have three children. Muscarella is a partner and vice president in a Franklin Square insurance agency.
