Zuckerman, 51, of East Hills, is running on the Democratic, Working Families and Independence lines.

Before that, the real estate attorney was a trustee on the East Hills village board since 2003.

  • He said he has helped expand Project Independence to offer seniors free transportation to the supermarkets and discounted rates to nonemergency doctor appointments. 
  • He said the town’s budget since 2014 has stayed below the state-mandated tax cap of 2%.
