Bosworth said that openness and transparency continue to be key priorities and that the town will ensure that the ethics reforms passed earlier this year are upheld. Bosworth said that she is focusing on infrastructure and parks, adding that “capital improvements are a must” while still keeping the town budget below the tax cap. She said that she hopes to transform North Hempstead Beach Park into a “state of the art recreational destination” and that the town is also committed to “keeping the green space” of the 200 wooded acres across from Beach Park.
