Troiano, 56, of Westbury, defeated incumbent Roger Corbin for the Democratic nomination. He has served six years on the North Hempstead Town Board and is a former president of the Westbury school board. A Brown University graduate with a master of business administration from Stanford University, Troiano spent 25 years on Wall Street. He currently works as the regional coordinator for the State Senate majority leader.
ISSUES: Troiano is proud of being "instrumental" in the development of a $25-million community center in New Cassel and reconstruction of Prospect Avenue. He said the relationships, skills and knowledge he's gained in the town will help him deliver services, including health care and more jobs, to other communities, such as Hempstead and Lakeview. The most important issue is to bring leadership to the district, he said.
