Rookie Nassau Legis. Joshua Lafazan, who ran for his 18th District seat as a Democrat but is not registered in any political party, is showing his nonpartisan roots by setting up a property tax grievance workshop with three other elected officials — all Republicans.
Lafazan’s co-hosts for the Feb. 6 evening workshop at Long Island University in Brookville, are Brookville Mayor Daniel Serota and Upper Brookville Mayor Elliot Conway.
The workshop is being presented by Hempstead Town Tax Receiver Don Clavin, also a Republican.
When he contacted the other officials, “partisanship was never even in the conversation,” said Lafazan, of Syosset. “We’re showing everyone across Long Island that campaigning is for campaigns. When you’re elected, it’s time to get to work.”
Said Clavin: “Challenging your assessment is a bipartisan issue. I’m delighted to reach across the aisle and help anybody.”
