Mejias out as Dem opponent for Sen. Hannon; McElroy in

HannonK.jpgIf Nassau Legis. David Mejias has interest in running for state Senate, he is going to have to wage a primary.

Jay Jacobs, Nassau Democratic chairman, said the party will be giving the nomination to Kristen McElroy, 38, a Garden City attorney and mother of three, making her first run to take on Republican State Senate veteran Kemp Hannon (left).

Mejias, moved into the Hannon’s district to qualify to run, was snubbed for the party’s nod after he angered Jacobs when he balked at backing a pay raise for county lawmakers.

Mejias, reached Friday, said that he will not challenge for the nomination, will support the party’s candidate and will “focus 100 percent on the Nassau Legislature.”

The party will also name Hofstra University ethics professor Roy Simon, 58, of West Hempstead to take on State Senate Deputy Majority Leader Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre).

The Democrats' convention is scheduled for May 29 at the Cradle of Aviation in Garden City.

Good morning. Hello. I was wondering if anyone could help me by giving me some arabic preyers so I can copy them out as I am making a torah for school. Please email me or reply on this Guestbook. Thank you. I love the website by the way. Help me! I can not find sites on the: About flexible dentures. I found only this - Dentures cost sac ca. Physicians try to put gag order on patients. The usual procedure is that you come in the morning for us to take impressions of your teeth and where possible we will deliver your denture that night or the next morning depending on the type of denture required. With best wishes :o, Valarie from Sierra.
