Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder recently announced his support and enthusiastic endorsement for Assembly candidate Todd Kaminsky in his neighboring 20th district. Citing Todd’s efforts to improve road conditions, protect families impacted by Hurricane Sandy, and help fight skyrocketing tuition costs, Goldfeder said Kaminsky is the clear choice for the Five Towns and Nassau County.
Goldfeder, a leading voice in the Assembly on increased funding for non-public schools and a visible leader in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, heralded Kaminsky as an effective ally, locally and in Albany.
“Now more than ever, I need a neighbor and a partner in the community and in Albany who can actually deliver for our struggling families,” Goldfeder said. “Todd Kaminsky has devoted his life to public service and is the right candidate to represent the Five Towns and the entire district. I enthusiastically endorse Todd Kaminsky in his race to represent the people of 20th Assembly District.”
As a federal prosecutor representing Long Island, Brooklyn, and Queens, and as acting deputy chief of the Public Integrity Section, Todd took down corrupt elected officials who used taxpayer dollars to fund lavish lifestyles, as well as drug kingpins and other major felons. Todd began his career as a prosecutor in the Queens District Attorney’s office, prosecuting domestic violence cases, robberies, shootings, and other violent crimes.
“I am incredibly grateful for the support of Assemblyman Goldfeder, who has dedicated his career to improving the lives of every family,” said Todd Kaminsky. “He has been an active public servant to all communities and as his partner we will work together to help struggling parents and build our community even stronger.”
As a community advocate, Todd has worked vigorously in support of Long Island’s South Shore. He organized free legal clinics for those affected by Hurricane Sandy and helped bring tens-of-thousands of dollars in relief funds to local residents. For his efforts, Todd was awarded the Community Service Award from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York.
