With the race heating up, Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman neither confirmed or denied on Thursday that he might run for county executive in Nassau.
In his first remarks to Patch since former Democrat Tom Suozzi announced his intention to reclaim his old job, Kaiman said he is keeping his options open.
"This is an evolving process and we will see what happens over the next few days," said Kaiman, in a written statement.
Suozzi, who served as Nassau County Executive from 2002-2010, publicly announced Wednesday that he will once again run for Nassau’s top post. Suozzi ran for a third term in 2009 but lost a close election to current Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano. The former mayor of Glen Cove also ran for New York Governor in 2006 but lost a Democratic primary to Eliot Spitzer.
Adam Haber, a Roslyn school board member, has also announced a county executive run as a Democrat.
