Kristina S. Heuser is running for Glen Cove city council member

Kristina S. Heuser

Heuser said the town needs to continue reducing commercial taxes and prosecuting illegal housing. She said the city's crackdown on illegal housing should go further with stiffer penalties for repeat offenders and she said she wants to change the city code "for those violations to be considered whenever an applicant goes before the planning board or zoning board for a variance." The city should use its bargaining position in giving approvals for development to "make sure that the waterfront is going to be for benefit and enjoyment of all the existing residents of Glen Cove." She said an attractive waterfront will be a draw for visitors and make the downtown vibrant.

Heuser, 33, is running on the Republican, Conservative and Independence party lines. She previously served as deputy city attorney and is currently a lawyer in private practice in municipal law, appeals and civil rights. Heuser grew up in Queens Village and went to high school in Bayside. She received her bachelor's degree in government and theology from Georgetown University. She received her law degree from Brooklyn Law School. She is married to John DiMascio, an attorney on the city planning board. She has two daughters.
