JOSEPH M. MANFREDI
- Manfredi, 49, of Glen Cove, is the manager of OWWR, SUNY Old Westbury’s web radio station, and is making his first run for public office.
- He is a former adjunct faculty member at Long Island University and currently is a lecturer in SUNY Old Westbury’s American Studies/media and communications program.
- Manfredi, who previously worked at News 12 Long Island and WABC/7, was inducted last year into the WCWP/88.1 FM Hall of Fame, which honors LIU alumni who are prominent in the radio and television industries.
- Manfredi said he is running for city council because “I have an opportunity to make a difference and create change in the community.”
- He said he wants the city to move forward with its plans to establish ferry service from Glen Cove to Manhattan, a move that he said would bring other Long Islanders to the city.
- “I want to ensure that we revitalize the downtown business area to help the small-business owners thrive here,” he said.
